Seventh inning from Hell dooms Baseball Jesus
No offense, no defense.
Braves 5, NAAAtionals 0: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIan Desmond strikes again (19th error). It all went to sh*t in the seventh.
Strasburg's line: 6.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K. 92 pitches-57 strikes, no run support.
Maybe Jim Riggleman needs to call another team meeting before tonight's game since Monday's closed-door meeting worked out so well?
Big changes coming, right Mike Rizzo? Or shall we just keep whistling past the graveyard?
"We're always looking to make moves, but this is not [going to be] a knee-jerk reaction from the poor defense we've shown in the last month. We showed that we could play clean games, because we did early in the season. I don't see any reason why we can't revert back to that and play cleaner, more efficient ballgames again."

White Sox looking to make a deal for Adam Dunn? Yes, says the Chicago Sun-Times.
5 losses in a row, and Nationals move a game closer to worst-place Baltimore, one more game removed from the Wild Card lead. Anthony Rendon, here we come!
