Nats desperate for an attitude adjustment

07:07 AM ET 05.23 | On Sunday night, Ryan Mattheus broke his pitching hand in anger, an incident that came on the heels of Bryce Harper running face-first into the Dodgers' scoreboard with a 6-0 lead. Then he compounded his recklessness by coming back too soon, aggravated his swollen knee (a parting gift from the fence) and missed more time. ... This month, Stephen Strasburg melted down in a scoreless game in which he had filthy stuff, losing his poise after Ryan Zimmerman made another error. With two out and only one on, he should have just attacked the No. 8 hitter. Instead, addled by his own perfectionism, he allowed four runs in a loss. This pattern has gone on all season. Whatever bad happens to them, they make it worse, usually for no reason and in a manner that suggests they have mashed potatoes for brains.

It's still a bit early to write the year off, but they're playing really poorly at all the wrong times. Espinosa is pitiful. And with the exception of Harper the hitting has been inconsistent to say the least When they hit, they don't pitch and vice versa.
