"I've been here for three years now, so I can control my emotions, because I know a lot of these kids -- or all of them -- are trying hard right now to do good. Nobody wants to be embarrassed. It's just, things are not working out. It would make a good press conference, but no, I'm not going to throw things; not at least in front of you guys."
(Manny Acta, via Nationals Journal, 4/25/2009)

16 games down, and the expression "historically bad" is officially back on the table.
Mets 8, NAAAts 2: U - G - L -Y, you ain't got no alibi. Even Softball girls wouldn't put on as ugly a display.
Mets 4, Nats 3: Fundamentals. Defense. Timely hitting. These things would certainly help the cause.
Fear not, Nationals fans: Dmitri Young is only about three weeks away...
