ATLANTA — Matt Williams sat back in his office chair at Turner Field and contemplated yet another question about yet another injury to yet another key member of his starting lineup.
"It is what it is," the first-year Nationals manager said. "Nobody's going to feel sorry for us. Gotta play."
That's all Williams and anybody else in the Nats clubhouse can say right now, but privately there is both sympathy for the three significant players who have landed on the disabled list in the season's first two weeks, each of them under particularly unfortunate circumstances.
