"I want to shock the world. I want to play over .500."
(Manny Acta, via Washington Post, 12/06/2006)
Shocking! 100 loss season a foregone conclusion as Nats play around at Disney.
Nats shooting to be the next Cleveland Spiders.
No moves is good news. Hey, there's always '08.
Manny being Manny: Acta sets the bar a little too high. There was a time when "Shock the world" meant "win it all". In Manny's World, it means "Play over .500".
