While my ties to Washington baseball are long and deep (and limited only by my middle age), I admit that I did not follow baseball as closely as I do now through the Dark Years. I was an ultra-fanatic as a child, took a thirty-four year break, and became an ultra-fanatic again in the fall [...] Continue reading
I was trading email last week with Mike Henderson, one of my blogging colleagues. I mentioned to him that even if you discount Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper’s Arizona Fall League performances, it seems that almost every time you look at an AFL box score over the last two years, you see the names of [...] Continue reading
In my real life, I own a tour company. I spend a lot of time and effort creating tours for my customers that make for a positive experience from beginning to end. I can’t do anything about rain, or what the wildlife does, but I can make sure that all of the things that are [...] Continue reading
The Phillies magic number is one.
Not that I care about the Phillies winning the division – actually, I care about the Phillies NOT winning the division – but here is a way that Nationals fans can glean a little satisfaction from the last six games.
The Nationals have to sweep the Phillies. Sounds like a tall [...] Continue reading
I am not a GM, nor do I play one on television… so I don’t have (an informed) opinion about how the Nationals did leading up to the trade deadline. Certainly the two trades the Nationals made make a lot of sense, and in terms of Matt Capps for Wilson Ramos, I think it was [...] Continue reading
This isn’t much fun for me.
Back in 2006, when Jim Bowden was shopping around Alfonso Soriano, we watched and waited every day… waiting for news… waiting to hear about the trade that would send our reason to come to the ballpark off to a contender, in exchange for prospects. Soriano smiled and worked hard, swiped [...] Continue reading
The Nationals of 2005 were a very different animal than the Nationals of 2010. In many ways, it feels the same, and Mark Zuckerman wrote today of the last time that the Nationals were four games above .500. But on September 18, 2005, the Nationals were riding the escalator down, while our 2010 Nationals [...] Continue reading
In disappointment, there is often opportunity.
In this case, the disappointment is the Capitals premature exit from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Caps fans and Nationals fans have a lot in common, and I think that you can assume that the Natosphere and the Capsosphere have been of one mind as of late.
I think most people thought [...] Continue reading
Lets have a little contest. Without doing the research I had to do to compile these stats, tell me which set of statistics belongs to which season – the first eleven games of 2009, or the first eleven games of 2010:
Team Batting Average
They seem pretty comparable, don’t they? One set of [...] Continue reading
I have been in a daze since I got home from the ballpark on Monday evening.
My family and friends all asked me how Opening Day was, and my universal answer was “horrible”.
I have been a Nationals fan (and a Senators fan before that) long enough to know that 11-1 losses happen. It is part of [...] Continue reading
