If you had tickets to the three Nationals-Dodgers home games this week, you might consider youselves the luckiest Nationals fans on the face of this earth. You got to watch more than 10 percent of the victories in person that the Nationals have had in their new ballpark. Before the series began Tuesday night, the Nationals were 23-39 at home — by far the worst home record in baseball, which makes sense, since they also had the worst record in baseball, period. The three wins over Los Angeles though is a huge spike in home victories — though they still have the worst home record in baseball. The Dodgers, meanwhile, will likely look upon these three games as the ones that blew their chance to win the NL West. Washington has not been very good to manager Joe Torre, who was in the dugout two years ago when Ryan Zimmerman hit his memorable walk-off home run against the visiting Yankees.
