Matt Williams did it again Monday night, and in no way is that a good thing.
The 49-year-old former All-Star cost the Washington Nationals another game with idiotic managing. The Nationals are fading fast in the National League playoff picture and Williams is actually hastening their shocking fall.
Washington entered Monday night’s matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals 5.5 games behind the first-place New York Mets in the N.L. East. The Mets won Monday night, making the Nats’ game even more important. With a 5-3 lead in the seventh inning, Williams made a series of decisions that wound up losing his team the game.
