If the Nats beat the Phillies and nobody is there to see it

Did it really happen? YES! [After reading this, check out the series preview Q&A I did with Enrico from The 700 Level] I totally did not want to go to the game last night and was silently praying for a rainout and the game to be called before hauling myself downtown. See, two days after [...] Continue reading

The New Guys and Old Guys

Since there are still a few hours before the Nats’ second game of the season, I can squeeze one more post out of opening day. So, I sounded pretty grumpy yesterday morning and I apologize. I should have just posted the pics and left it at that! One game is certainly not enough to judge [...] Continue reading

2011 Opening Day Thoughts and Photos

Jordan Zimmermann and Today’s Pitching

The Nationals took the field as visitors in their new red unis. J-Zimm rocked today! And I don’t mean that in the “he gave up a lot of hits/runs” sense, but rather was rockin’ on the mound against the Marlins. He was the only pl… Continue reading

Scary 1st Inning

There were a couple scary moments in the first inning of today’s 5-1 win over the Marlins in Jupiter, FL. Well, three actually, but I’ll get to the third in a later post. Nyjer Morgan led off against the team he started a brawl with late la… Continue reading

Wordish About 9th Inning

See what I did there? If Harper can be hitterish (a word I have heard before), then I can get a little wordish. Damn Yankees. The Yankees faithful filled Space Coast Stadium yesterday to watch one recognizable player (Cano) take on the Nats starters. C… Continue reading

03-12-11 Yankees 5 Nats 6

[ Photoset on Flickr ] Today was the last day for phenom Bryce Harper in major league camp before he was sent to single A (one of those H cities) after the game. It was also the day for prospects, namely Derek Norris, to shine. I’ll be more wordi… Continue reading
