the reason they were getting their brains beaten in was because the Nats were stealing their signs!
A five run lead, as Davey says, is nothing.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that DC fans don't kow how to win with a little class. It is the city's first winning team in what, a half a century or more? Enjoy it while it lasts. If history is any guide, your high-quality fanbase will just drive the team to another city in a few years anyway.

And why pick on the Cubs? They're just following the Nats strategy of sucking as hard as they can to get a first round pick, and then celebrating their scouting genius when they shock everyone by discovering a hidden gem like Bryce Harper.
Well, I'm sure their player development team is very pleased with how Josh Vitters has worked out.
And why pick on the Cubs?
Umm...because the Cubs were screaming from the dugout and throwing at players because they were losing?
There are 2 Nats regulars who have a slugging %age over .500. LaRoche is the team leader at .511. Can you name the other?
Thank you; you just nailed right on the head what irks me most of all. For most of the better part of seven years the Nationals got nothing but grief around here. Now that we in D.C finally have a legitimately good ballclub we can be proud of, the haters get all pissy if we dare to be happy about it. Speaking for myself only, if anyone doesn't like it that's just too damn bad. What goes around comes around.
If you adopt too much swagger too quickly, people will (rightly) respond by saying "you guys haven't even done anything yet".
The problem is how you show you're proud of the team. It gives off a very insecure vibe. Like I said in the other thread you guys need to adopt a swagger and what you're showing isn't that.
Also, in somewhat related news, I think Nats fans are f**king tired of hearing everyone else in the nation say, as if with one unified voice, that the team is criminally deranged, dooming its postseason, and "letting down the fans" by shutting down Strasburg. Just the other day I heard some idiot on a national radio show say that "players won't want to sign and play with the Nationals for years to come" because the FO has apparently 'betrayed' the club with this sinister, unplanned, surprise move (that was announced in November of last year). It's just so painfully stupid, and you get the sense that people think the only reason the Nationals have succeeded is because of Strasburg.
Reds take the Nats out,
What's the sign for dick-high-fastball-with-nothing-on-it?
As a Reds fan, I would make the Nats slight favorties in that matchup. The Reds have some lineup issues. I strongly suspect that either the Reds or the Nats will lose in the division series.
I'm reasonably certain that nobody gives a flying #### what you think is the "proper" attitude for Nats fans.
Christ, the things people will argue about.
So you are complaining about the things people will argue about while arguing with me about what what I think Nats fans should. You don't see the flaw in that?
The Cubs are just a bunch of turds out there. Can't pitch, can't hit. Just a bunch of turds.
y kids aren't allowed to say it and must instead refer to it as "the brown word".
Exactly. Swagger? McCoy, the Nats have exactly zero playoff appearances and, before this year, zero seasons above .500. Their fans have zero experience with winning baseball. I fully expect them to run into a Cincinnati- or Atlanta-shaped bulldozer in the playoffs and get swept away like so much highway debris. It's wholly uncharted territory for the team and its fans, and right now the sense of emotional vindication for the long-suffering fans is matched by a fear that it could all go kaput.
Sam: Shut up.
Others may complain, Joey, but they're complaining about you being an #######, not about Nats fans or the Nats in general.
it manages to be cowardly and pathetic at the same time.
Now if one could combine grace and cowardice that would be a feat!
