    Are we better than the Nationals?

    We've won 5 out of 6 against them now. Feels like all 5 we've won we've been very lucky while that one they won they showed us who they really are.

    We are 5-1 these past six meetings, but we could easily be 0-6.

    They are who we thought they were. And we didn't let them off the hook.

    It took multitudinous death blows but the gnats have succumbed. Great team.

    Unfortunately you can't really go by "Wins" and "Losses" as a way to evaluate a team. The Nats and Braves have an identical team batting wOBA of .334. Nats pitching, however, clocks in at a 19.9 WAR whereas we have a measly 10.7. They are light years better than us, sad to say. We have been drafting well though so perhaps by the '22 season we will prove to be their equal

    Well, we were a little lucky in the last series. But this series has been a straight up ass beating.

    I picked "No, Way behind them" because I felt bad for it on the poll. I don't like anyone getting left out.
