What the Nationals' series vs Marlins has taught me

The Nationals completed the series against Marlins, splitting the four-game set. These four games have taught me some important lessons...

These four game-series against the Miami Marlins have taught me some interesting things:

• We have not won a series: we tied 2-2 and for the first time we have not won a series. It can happen, do not panic...

Jonathan Papelbon was renamed "Johnny Jonathan". Funny. The only problem now is remembering to update his name in the Yellow Pages.

Bryce Harper hits his second grand slam of the season and continues his campaign: When he hits home runs, baseball really is fun again...

Jayson Werth hit the sculpture of the Marlins. It will be a good reminder to never bring him in Florence or Rome… he might strike those sculptures too...

Max Scherzer does not want to high five. No interactions. Unless you are the dugout iron bar...

Now the Nationals return to Washington to challenge the Twins and to learn a lot of new things...
