Danny Espinosa still not impressed by Atlanta Braves after sweep

The Braves were not impressed with the Nationals this weekend, battering them 18-5 in a 3 game sweep One would think that getting swept by the Atlanta Braves, at home, only scratching across 5 runs while allowing 18, would have Washington Nationals players giving the Braves a little respect.  One would be wrong.  Even after losing games with Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez being...
