(Next) Spring is in the Air…

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

Remind You of 2005?

It shouldn’t.
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

Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Damn you, Jim Bowden.
Back in 2007, when Bowden traded for Elijah Dukes, the fans of the [Devil] Rays couldn’t have been happier to get anything in trade (in this case, Glenn Gibson) for Dukes. Tampa Bay fans, and the Rays organization had given up on him. Nationals fans, while wary, were willing to give Dukes [...] Continue reading

We All Get a Little Pudge Around the Holidays

If it weren’t for Paul LoDuca, we would all be thrilled about the signing of Ivan Rodriguez.
Pudge isn’t LoDuca. Pudge (presumably) knows what his role is… I’m not sure LoDuca did.
