100 No More!

Today's win, their 63rd of the year, means the Nats will not lose 100 games this season, which definitely isn't the historically bad that the Nats' team officials were quietly predicting before the season (way to manage expectations, guys!).

I'm not sure it qualifies as an accomplishment (and I'm reminded of the one guy who gave Buddy Bell a 1st place Manager of the Year vote when his team lost 109 games), but knowing and feeling are different things. It feels like an accomplishment even though the rational side of my brain knows it's not.

For the record, I had 'em at 68-94. That'd be 5-17 from here on out.
