Nationals lose 1st game of 2019 with 2018-type miscues

WASHINGTON (AP) — In some respects, the first game of 2019 felt a bit like a remnant of 2018 all over again for manager Dave Martinez and the Washington Nationals.

As much as the roster has been reworked after missing the playoffs, with plenty of folks gone — most prominently, of course, Bryce Harper — and plenty arrived to replace them, the sorts of things that ailed the Nationals last season were again on display in a 2-0 loss to the New York Mets on opening day.

That included an up-and-down-the-lineup inability to hit in the clutch and one particularly bad example of baserunning by rookie center fielder Victor Robles.

Do you think Mike Rizzo ever regrets his hubris from 2012 at all?

Scherzer pitched really well and the bullpen was no help, but with deGrom on the mound and the Familia/Diaz two headed dragon at the back there just isn't much margin for error.

To paraphrase Roger Angell, "Jacob deGrom pitched brilliantly and won. Max Scherzer pitched even better and lost."
