No offense National's fans...

...but your team sucks. I mean the Nationals are truly terrible.

Anytime Ron Belliard is your first baseman I can't imagine there is much to be happy about.

I actually felt sorry for Belliard. Probably because I still have a soft spot for him (I felt he got the shaft and was/is a servicable 2B and hitter).

That said... Thank god for the Nats, huh? Made for a happy weekend.

Someone needs to post some "before" (i.e. rookie year in MKE) and "after" (i.e. current)photos of Ronnie Belliard. The dude is immense.

Of course, the camera does add ten pounds.

Go f- yourselves.

It's one thing for me to say the Nationals suck, but you guys can't. If anyone could empathize with our growing pains, one would think that Brewers fans could.

Maybe you'll consider:

The Brewers didn't have a winning season for nearly a decade after returning to Milwaukee. We've been at this for half that time and just got ourselves an owner.

And thanks to your boy Selig and all his f-ing cronies who cherry-picked our best players, refused to sign free agents, and stripped our farm system we're suffering now.

I congratulate your new ownership team for making a serious run at this thing now. But you guys will be back at mediocre this time next season.

Um...

This post was qualified with a "no offense".

That said... They really, really suck. I should know; I've seen a few bad teams in my life as a brewers fan. But when you have to start Ronnie Belliard AT FIRST BASE, your team eats.

Yes, the Expos/Nats got screwed over. But you're lucky to have a team, lucky it didn't get contracted, and the only reason you DO have a team is because of MLB leadership taking the helm and keeping it going while you found an owner. Otherwise you'd be still be cheering for the Orioles.

No more Counsell at third/batting sixth please, Special Ned... Play Hall or Branyan. Please. You have players that are "real" third basemen, so you don't have to play a middle infielder out of position like some under-manned team that we can't name otherwise trolls will whimper and whine *cough*.

If Corey needs a day off today, Branyan has played OF before (for the Rays)...

ha. now you've pissed off willie. good stuff.

The funny thing is... I CAN say the Nats suck. 'Cause they do. Just like I can say that I hate coconut, that I'm tired of hearing about Brett Favre, and that I would do horrible, wonderful things to Laura Prepon. Because it's how I feel. Welcome to the free world, bucko.

WV- Thanks to your team for knocking back the Cards a few more games. I don't normally hope for a Cubs win, but this weekend... yeah, I did.

DOGY -

Can I say, where is karate kat? Because, where is he?

Willie the Groundskeeper said...

So, by saying "no offense" that supposed to make everything ok?

I hear that Putin just said, "no offense Georgians but I'm going to roll right through your country."

The "reason" we have a team has more to do with Congress threatening to take away the owners' anti-trust exemption, than the good will of the MLB.

I think Karate Kat may be golfing in Illinois today, thus not available for an appearance on this blog. Chuckie Hacks' management regrets this unfortunate circumstance.

WV-

Prince Fielder is fat. If his tits were on an of-age female gymnast, I'd be set. Instead, they get in his way.

Willie- If you don't like that your team sucks, don't take it out on us for stating the fact.
