Nightmare Start

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh

1-6. Sounds more like a Nationals record than anything else. As of this moment, the only worse team in MLB is the Astros who are 0-7.


Win only one game in Tampa. Closer blows 2 of first 4 games including the home opener vs. Toronto. Lead off man and 2x All-Star is on the DL. Offense can't get anything going. Best bats right now are Pie, Wieters and Tejada.

Opening Day on Friday was great. Largest crowd ever at OPACY for Opening Day. Then Gonzo blows it again. It was my 5th opening day in a row and the most disappointing. What is wrong with this team?

Back in the off season and through spring training, it looked like pitching would be the problem. I am still not sold on Guthrie as a starter personally. But it has been our horrid offense that has been costing us games. And judging by the putrid 9,129 fans (a OPACY record low) that showed up last night, we are losing what little fan base remains.

The MLB season is 162 games long. Plenty of time to correct problems. There will be injuries, there will be heart breakers, and there will be blown games. But do they really all have to occur in the first 7 games? My blood pressure cannot handle this.

Two more home games vs . Tampa until a long road trip takes the Orioles out to Oakland, Seattle and then to Boston.
