Post’s Stephen Hunter calls for Nationals fans to turn against the presidents race

  1. I think the Presidents Race has gotten boring and tired. It needs to be turned into a REAL competition. “Let Teddy Win” is just another symbol of the banality of this totally scripted event. Instead, let Teddy compete along with the other three big heads, and let the chips fall where they may. Then the real drama of the race will have a chance to emerge, and it might indeed become worthy of its mantle The Main Event. Right now, it’s just the main sham.

  2. Ugh, Stephen Hunter, another baseball purist who doesn’t like any attempt to move the game into the 21st Century. He makes me want to become a Mets Fan. Stephen’s venom should be directed at the cheapskate Lerners and his co-worker, Minister of Propaganda Tom Boswell; not lovable Teddy, Abe, Tom, and George. GO TEDDY !!! !

  3. How about hating National’s GM Jim Bowden for some of the questionable moves he has made to the roster and for his managing style of the team? Bad playing may come from a lack of skills, but it also comes from low (or in the Nationals case, non-existent) team morale, easily fostered by a GM who makes sudden decisions that undermine any feelings of team cohesion. How can you expect the Nationals to play well everyday when they feel they could be dealt by Bowden and not even know until someone besides Bowden tells them?

    Hating the President’s Race is an easy way out. Hunter is afraid to dig deeper into the organizations problems.

  4. Interesting – so Hunter calls the team’s racing presidents “charmless, awkward, silly, sexless and pointless?” Judging by his article and the picture of him above, I would say Mr. Hunter has some personal knowledge about four of the five of those adjectives.

    *Charmless – check
    *Awkward – check
    *Sexless – in a different sense
    *Pointless – if you count reading anything he writes

    But, hey, at least he’s not silly! Let’s replace that one with “seldom correct.”

  5. Go Presidents, go! I love the Presidents Race and even the thought of someone saying that Nats fans should hate on the race fills me with hatred for the commenter. The race is a great break from a sometimes sad (sometime thrilling, sometimes satisfactory) baseball game!
