"I'm not stupid; you can play a lot of close games and be a bad ballclub. But the difference between us and the other clubs is not that wide a gap. We just made some mistakes."
(Jim Riggleman, via Washington Post, 9/28/2009)
51 games under .500; not that wide a gap?
Braves 6, Nats 3: They just made some mistakes. No point in naming names at this point.
Nationals seem happy to help Braves with Wild Card push. Maybe play spoiler next weekend?
The really good news is: with Nats at 52-103, and Pittsburgh at 58-96, the magic number to clinch the Bryce Harper Sweepstakes stands at one. Will they clinch it at home?
