I have written a guest post for the Mets Report about why I don't think the Washington Nationals will be able to stay in the NL East much longer (although they should finish much better than the last 4 years).
I hope I'm wrong, but they seem to be relying too heavily on several pitchers that are having somewhat fluky seasons. Today is another chance for them to prove me wrong though, with Livan Hernandez matching up with Ubaldo Jimenez in Colorado after their game was rained out yesterday.
Update: The Nationals lost their last 3 games to the Rockies, mainly because they didn't hit, scoring only 6 runs over those 3 games. Livan Hernandez wasn't terrible on Saturday afternoon (6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER), but I do think he's finally settling into a more normal Livan-like season than the Cy Young contender he was for most of the season so far.
