Astros just needed to get to Nats pen in a tie game. Maybe down 1 would have worked also. Instead they implode. 

Yep 10-2. Geez Stros. They beat the Yankees and yet they can’t win against the Nats? Well that’s baseball.

I assume those are fans posting on Twitter and not baseball writers. I saw people on Twitter criticizing Elias when he traded Cashner and why do the Orioles keep trading their good players. Twitter is full of bad baseball takes. 

No, it’s some writers.

Why are you so surprised? Y's don't have anything close to the Nats' front three of Scherzer, Strasburg, and Sanchez.

Looking on twitter....I just don’t get anyone getting on Hinch about the walk to Soto. I mean who in the hell would want to face him there?  Pressly got the groundball and Bregman screwed up.  

If Bill Buckner gets all the ridicule for that error in the WS, Bregman should get some too. Easy play for a major league infielder.

LOL. The Nats gave Altuve the hand clap.

What's with this hand clap? Can someone enlighten me?

It is amazing how much winning a championship cures everything.  The documentary Catching Hell was all about Steve Bartman and the 03 Cubs, but Bill Buckner was prominently featured.  And it is just amazing how much grief he and Bartman took for their respective roles in the Red Sox and Cubs collapses in those years.  In both situations, extremely long and painful championship droughts were at stake....which meant the pitchforks were ready. 

Of course, the Buckner error was in an already tied game where the Red Sox had somehow blown a 2-out, 2-run lead with nobody even on base.  And it was fascinating to hear Buckner talk about his glove, and then to see what happened to the glove as the ball approached him.  I lived in Chicago near Wrigley in 2003 and I remember all of those events very clearly.  I really do believe that without Bartman's hands touching that ball, Alou catches it and there is no Marlins rally.  But that could have been any one of those fans' hands.  Just an incredible series of events. 

No matter what Houston does or doesn't do in these last few games, they just delivered a title 2 years ago.  So there are no pitchforks.

Stoked for the Nats.  Don't care that many here aren't.  But as a Northern VA native, I've followed crap teams for pretty much all my life.  The Redskins, I remember the glory years a little bit but for most of my life they've been crap.  Bullets, crap.  I don't care enough about hockey so the Caps winning was nice but I couldn't pretend to care much.  Was more happy for the fans around here that have been through thick and thin.

But I take a partial interest in the Nats.  Don't watch a lot of the games but I watch from time to time.  And I don't care about the MASN deal.  I don't care about Baltimore's inferiority complex and whatever "rivalry" exists between the areas.  It doesn't exist, it's made up by fans and sportswriters that are looking for an angle where one doesn't exist.  The baseball teams are in different leagues, the football teams are in different conferences.  

Glad to see a DC team in a relevant sport on the brink of a major championship.  Go Nats!

If the Nats win that should boost attendance, fan interest..........and dare I say...................MASN ratings?     That seems like something Orioles fans should root for.   ;)

mwahahahahahahaha

Altuve made a nice play to snag a Zimmerman grounder that finally brought the top of the 8th to an end. Someone in the Nat’s dugout (I didn’t recognize who) clapped their appreciation  of the play (Or perhaps it was just happiness at a good inning). In any case, it looked similar to the applause my mom would give when my little league team finally managed to get off the field.

    • Bailey appears to have been stretched out as a starter in the minors; understanding that he is a once through the order kinda guy, what’s the thought about him being a starter for us? An opener?
    • Now that the Rule 5 is over, Givens looks like the next domino to fall. I just don’t see him building value during the season. We’re going to be in such a mad scramble to cover innings with multi inning relievers. Givens won’t be used in a traditional “closer” role. He’d be used in a “fire stopper” role and wouldn’t see too many easy innings to pad his stats.  The reliever market looks like its moving too. The Yankees know Givens’ value, and need a Betances replacement. Now that the Rule 5 is over we can trade without having to worry about players not being protected from the MLB and MILB Rule 5 draft. 
    • I’m still holding out hope that the “look for bad contracts” quote that Connolly reported was to attempt to trade Davis. The taking back money part could be to take back a littler more than the 69 million left on his deal. 
    • Just wait until Ed Howard comes out driving the ball this spring or Reid Detmers gains a couple ticks of velocity or Zamora’s bat takes off. Not saying those things will happen, but there are guys who could jump into that top 3 discussion. Plus I’d argue Gonzales should already be in that discussion.
    • I was thinking the same thing. Look at the 2019 draft from pick #8 on. We also picked up Hanhold and Sulser at the end of the year. Now we’ve added these 8 pitchers. All NCAA pitchers with the exception of Diplan.  Its clear that we have a plan. It will make the losing at the mlb level easier next year. We’re going to see some deep staffs from Delmarva - Norfolk. Two thoughts... we still have trade chips, and we still have waivers. Last year we picked up Alberto and Austin Brice off of waivers. Both had huge years. It’s just a shame we let go of Brice, but that was before Elias had a chance to evaluate our pitching. 
    • Two guys that both can go multi innings and will help the depth of the MLB staff next year. Elias has really improved the depth of pitching in the org since last June’s draft. It’s going to be noticeable from Delmarva - Baltimore, with Baltimore lagging behind, but we’re going to see some really deep milb staff’s to give us hope for the future. 
    • Both have a chance to stick.   Bailey is pretty short at 5-10, 175.   Big jump from AA makes them more likely to begin in the pen.
