If I was a Nationals fan I'd be sweating bullets with Beltran, Holliday, Craig, Freese and Molina all coming up that can hit the ball out.
Maybe I am biased since I have played baseball my whole life but I think in a way it is harder to be "tough" in baseball because you control so little. You can't field it just by choice, and you are only up 1 out of every 9 times, and even then your fate can be with the pitcher, umpire, fielders, and luck. There is a lot more effort to be mentally tough in baseball, because its so much more about belief than effort.
That song was cool by the Nats fans. As a Yanks fan my team went from mentally tough for 6 years to whatever that was for the next 10 or so. Now they are in the middle. 2011 Cards vs. 1996 Yankees would be something.
