With the Nats on the cusp of their first 100-loss season, we will countdown to the momentous occasion here after each loss leading up to the milestone.
After Tim Redding’s outstanding 2 2/3-inning, seven-run performance last night against the Marlins (he came up short of his career high 11th win), the moment is upon us: We are one loss from 100. Man, we’ve come a long way. Shit, it seems like only yesterday that we were 10 losses from this thing actually happening. Maybe that’s ’cause it was just 14 days ago.
The Nats have four games left to reach the milestone, but we’d really like to see them get it out of the way tonight, at home, in front of the dozens of loyal fans who have been there for the highs and lows. But mostly the lows. Lots and lots of lows. Those fans deserves to witness this ultimate mark of ineptitude.
Whenever it happens, we have, um, big, big plans. Yep, lots of stuff planned here for the 100th loss. Unless it happens on Sunday, in which case we probably won’t notice.
