We really need to right the ship here, Nationals aren't going away. And can't let Philly sweep us, or they are right back to being a major threat to us with the way our offense has been lately.

We need a new rule of this forum. Under no circumstances should any poster ever suggest a sweep or assurances of victory. Anytime someone does we always get roasted by whoever we're playing.

:lol: i hope you really dont believe that what we say here makes any difference in the outcome of a game

Wade Boggs didnt eat fried chicken before every game for nothing. Got him to the hall of fame. We change posters anytime we have a bad series, we carry our weight in this battle around here!

Baseball players are ultra superstitious,  so why can't we be? 

Being superstitious is fine but to honestly believe that their success is based on what we type on a Messageboard is out there.

I really hope that you don't think he's 100% serious.

He does the same thing with people making threads, if we win the series then the same person make the next thread.

Nope, Rockies win. 

That's huge!   4.5 game lead rather than 3.5.  That .5 game may be even larger as the season gets close to the end.
