Before 2012, when the Nats first got to the post-season, i had been watching more hockey than baseball. Tonight, after the Nats fourth error, I switched to the Capitals game seven showdown with the Islanders. Just after that the caps scored the winning goal, so they are going to the next round of playoffs.
The Nationals are now playing their worst baseball since 2011. And something is not right with Doug Fister, and apparently this goes all the way back to the start of Spring Training. His normal fastball used to be at 88-91 mph. Now it is around 85 mph. The offense, defense and bull-pen are mediocre this year.
