"I'm just so proud of these guys. ... It's a beautiful situation. It's got the potential to be a beautiful situation, I should say. Because the players want it, the fans want it. I think we're getting closer."

100 isn't the loneliest number: '09 Nats Join Century Club.
Dodgers 7, Nats 6: Martin digs a hole, Nats climb out. Villone kicks 'em back down. Pete Orr unable to save the Nats from #100 two nights in a row.
Give 'em credit: at least they put up a fight last night before finally succumbing to the inevitable number.
