Have the Washington Nationals hit rock bottom? Fans are asking for accountability, and so far all we hear is “they are trying too hard” or “they are pressing.” Well, the losses have piled up, and the Nats’ winning percentage has sunk to .316 with some of the toughest teams coming up over the next week. The team is on pace for 111 losses.
The team has lost the first two games in Miami and have to hope for a salvage win to avoid a sweep tonight. Good luck with that as the Nats will face the best starting pitcher in baseball tonight as Pablo Lopez is on the mound for the Marlins.
Things are so bad that the Marlins TV crew is making fun of the Nats calling them the National Circus.
Was Victor Robles benched because of another poor baserunning mistake last night? Who knows. He isbout of the lineup tonight and Lane Thomas is in. Josiah Gray is the Nats starter for this Miami finale.
The team has an off-day tomorrow and will fly to Milwaukee after the game to get ready for their weekend series against the Brewers.
