With the Nats’ 8-2 loss to the Mets on Friday, the Nationals are now 1-3 for the first week of the season. A lot of people have talked this week about the Nats’ (or individual players’) paces so far. The Nats are roughly on pace to end April 6-17. This would be pretty close to their 5-16 record in April of 2009–the beginning of the ugliest Nats season so far. There go our hopes for sitting at .500 for even a single day, for the first time since April 2008.
