Ok so we lost last night, but did you see the fight we put up at the end.... We are ready for whoever awaits in the post season. If we go down, we're going down swinging!

Keuchel has a 1.79 ERA in 45.1 innings with Flowers. Hes allowed 1 HR.

He has a 4.73 in 51.1 innings with McCann. Hes allowed 11 HR.

Could be a fluke but something to think about. Flowers might need to be his primary guy in October.

Seitzer said Acuna is trying so hard to hit another HR to get to 40 hes hurting himself. They've been trying to get him to stop worrying about it. Goes along with what was speculated earlier this year. Acuna's personal goals sometimes impact his play. Instead of just taking his normal approach hes actively trying to hit a HR every AB.

He's still a little wet behind the ears....imagine when he fully matures.

Cardinals up 5-1 on the Nats in the 8th. Would trim the magic number to 2 if it holds. The Nats are off tomorrow so the Braves would have a chance to clinch the East with a win tomorrow if they can pull one out tonight.

Worst part is tomorrow is a noon start on a school and work day. Crowd will probably a smaller one for a possible clincher.

Need to wrap this thing up.  Team seems lethargic.

Yeah, kind of seems like they've hit cruise control. I think some have mentally moved on to October already.

Between October and Acunas charge for 40/40, it all just seems off.

So eventually the Nats will lose 2 and we’ll clinch.  Hopefully wake up by October.

That happens. This team needs mental rest. Lot of young players grinding.
