After losing earlier today, the Nats have fallen to .500; I'll take it! This is the deepest in the season the Nats have been .500 or better since 2005, when the club finished with a 81-81 record. The Nats have only played 12 games thus far, so it's not yet time to dream of a World Series championship just yet. Or even an 80 win season. Or a 70 win campaign either. But, hey, it's something.
The real key has been Ivan Rodriguez. Rarely does a player experience a magical resurgence with the Nats. And by rarely, I mean never. Usually, it happens the other way. But I digress. It feels pretty great to have reached such heights, even if it is early.
