GM Goes Government; Washington Nationals Should Consider the Same

gm bankrupt.jpgGeneral Motors is busted.

My dignity (whatever there was of it) is also busted.

And in case you haven’t noticed, the 2009 Washington Nationals are most definitely busted.

Now I realize that it has become cliché hack to go after the lowly Natinals and all their shame — that by marauding these lesser-known squibs I am just one of many basement-confined jokesters, another savvyless cheapshotateer who gets off on landing lowblows wherever I can.

But that’s me.

‘Cuz when you’re bad, you’re bad; and the Washington Nationals are beyond bad.

With a sub-stellar 13-36 record as of the first of June, touting a team ERA of 5.69 and Kip Wells in the bullpen, I think it is time we US Americans seriously consider showing the Washington Nationals a big-time government bailout.

Because if Julian Tavarez can’t save the Nationals, then who in the world can?

GM made crappy cars.  For years, GM didn’t listen to its consumers.  Simply put, GM didn’t care.  They were/are insane: doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.  And now GM is virtually as obsolete as their “planned obsolescence” business model: an absolute example of eating your own s*** and dying a terrible death.

If the government knows anything, it knows how to take money from everyday Joes like us and spend it irresponsibly.  So, save the franchise, Capitol Hill!  I don’t care about GM, but I do care about about the Montreal Expos Washington Nationals and they deserve my tax dollars because let’s face it, Adam Dunn has gotta eat (a lot).

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

The Nationals are definitely sub-stellar.

I’m all for a bailout of the Nats! Maybe it is something that Bush & Cheney could do now – you know to fill all their free hours.

Can’t we just give them back to the Canadians? The Blue Jays must get kind of lonely up there all by themselves.

Dillon — Definitely… though that rally against SF makes them look a bit above sub-stellar if only for a moment.
Julia — Bush, yes. Cheney? No. He’s too busy fear mongering on the media circuit and that’s a full-time job.
Erin — I don’t think the Canadians want them either. And as long as the Jays continue to kill their own hopes and dreams, yes, it’s pretty lonely.

Oh Washington Nationals. At least they have the consolation of knowing that they’ll probably have a really good season before the Cubs win another World Series. It might be after I die of old age, but hey…it’s better than 100+ years of epic fail.

Jen — Indeed. The Nats/Expos only have 40 years of fail, which isn’t quite “epic” yet. Leave that to the sCrUBBIES.

The Natinals Stadium is 2 and 1/2 blocks away from where I work in an area that I call “Loserville”

There is nothing surrounding the stadium such as places to eat, drink, buy Nats crap, etc. They are such a joke.

At least the Expos were exciting and had good young players. The Nats are just a sorry bunch of losers who had their GM resign earlier in the year and just fired their pitching coach, who must have thought that they were in a coach pitch league!!!

Keep up the good work!

Aaaah, I’m finally back to the MLBlogosphere after a rather loooong absence. Btw, the “Natinals” are certainly something less than good.

I like the idea of Canada taking the Nats off our hands. It was their team to begin with, so why not become Expos again? As for GM, don’t get me started or my fingers will start to spazz out as I type. Uh-oh63^*WIO*+@.

Ken — I was at Nationals Park a few weeks ago. The stadium was beautiful and they were in the process of building all of that stuff you said they don’t have. It’ll get there (not sure about the team though).
William — Welcome back!
Jane — How ironic, Jane! My nickname is high school was “63^*WIO*+@”… have you been digging up old files on me?

If my team weren’t in the cellar and stumbling so badly I might, might, jump on the make funnies about the Nationals. However knowing humility I digress. Go Nats! Actually if they lose more I don’t mind because the Rockies don’t look as bad.
