The team is 9-18 over the last month and enters play Tuesday seven games back in the National League East and 3 1/2 out of the second wild-card spot. While these deficits are far from insurmountable with three months left in the season and given the talent on Washington's roster, there's cause for genuine concern.

You never know what to expect in this game. One second a player is a can't-miss prospect with MVP written all over him, the next he's Delmon Young. That's why it's never surprising to witness a player you've never heard of suddenly become the backbone of a franchise, while a team's highest earner rides the pine.
