"It’s the same thing that kind of got us last year, and why we didn’t maybe move on. Because we couldn’t close games out both pitching and defense-wise. We need to get better at that and learn from our mistakes."
(Ryan Zimmerman, via Washington Times, 4/13/2013)

"We’re just not locating the ball. We’re all over the place. I’ve got to take responsibility. Probably overusing them or something. ...Det’s pitched two great ballgames and come out with nothing. I feel real bad about that."
(Davey Johnson, via Washington Post, 4/13/2013)
Good news: 152 games left. Go get 'em today...
