Some comments by and about my alter-ego:

Quote from: jonnylons Today at 06:43:04 AM
The Nationals are playing baseball - I wouldn't say good baseball - and they are beating the Fish. I think MA [EDIT: MA = MarlinAddict] was right to be concerned about this series as I was, too. You can never, ever count on sweeping a team. Even if they have been playing horrible all season long. The Nationals do look much better with Nyjer leading off and pushing that team's offense. Should the Fish be losing these games? No. We lost the first game with JJ on the mound. Last night, we came up short. Not good considering we are heading off to Philly after tonight.


Quote from: MarlinAddict August 04, 2009, 10:46:16 AM
I hope we don't take the Nats too light.  The top 6 in their order can hurt you in a hurry.   Zimmerman is hot again, Willingham is on fire, and Guzman has his stroke back.  The new guy, Nyjer Morgan leading off is getting on base.  Dunn is Dunn, and Volstad has to be careful.  Dukes has good plate discipline, and can put the ball in orbit.  The pitching has improved enormously with McCatty taking over for St. Claire.  While Riggleman isn't ever going to be a manager of the year candidate, he's infinitely better than Acta, who is even worse than was McKeon in 04-'05.  They are playing better, and until last night, had gone a fair number of errorless games.  The key is to get to their pen.

The Nats were much tougher in early July than in April, and will be tougher still again this time now that Riggleman has them at least treading water.  I'd love a sweep, and will be happy with a 2-1 series win.


After beating the Cubs, the Fish were flying high.  The Nats really took the wind out the their sails.  It will likely prove out that the whoop a$$ the Nats unloaded on the Fish this series is the blow that ended whatever playoff hopes they had for the season.  A sweep in Philly would negate the impact, but I don't think that is going to happen.  The Fish will be expending the last of their 4-man rotation (thanks to the brilliance of Beinfest) today, and will go into Philly using a spot starter who probably will be called up after the game today (I haven't checked the MiLB schedules, but Sean West would be my first guess).  The Fish may escalate into a death spiral by Sunday.  If so, it was the Nats that first pushed them off the cliff.

I short, I don't see the recovery coming, and the Fish faint playoff hopes will be proven to have come to a screeching halt this week in DC.  The Nats have gotten some revenge for the Fish feeding on the ineptitude of St Claire and Acta, and just like they did to the Mets in 2007, the Nats have likely ended the Marlins playoff hopes.

Congratulations to the Nats, and especially to all their fans on WNFF.

For those going this afternoon - latest from Yahoo! Weather:

'Rain with a thundershower possible this morning then variable clouds during the afternoon with scattered thunderstorms. High 77F. Winds N at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall near a half an inch.'

-----

...a lot like our other 12.35 start (Houston - the one that had to be completed on the road)...our luck with the weather this season has been simply abysmal.

[although outside my window, in an office roughly midway between the Capitol and Verizon Centre, it is not raining at this moment (or if it is, the most delicate mist)]

My brother and I have visitor's dugout seats - good chance we'll be on TV. Look for the Nats tshirt and PSU cap. I'll yell "Sign Strasburg" if we are on MASN.

I am hoping for a rain delay at this point.

You said the theme was "THE OFFICE"?  How about Office Space?

It's not just about me and my dream of doing nothing. It's about all of us. I don't know what happened to me at that hypnotherapist and, I don't know, maybe it was just shock and it's wearing off now, but when I saw that fat man keel over and die - Michael, we don't have a lot of time on this earth! We weren't meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about about mission statements.

i've been told the link has popped up on other nats boards and such.  :clap:  it won't have any affect on him signing, but it is still see some nats fans band together on a topic.

NATS CAST ON the Washington Post - says rain should stop in time for the game.

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/capitalweathergang/natcast/

Showers should be winding down by the first pitch or even earlier so a rain delay is not that likely (just a 20% chance). Temperatures will be in the 70s under mostly cloudy skies.

Thanks NOTLD!

Rats, was hoping Morgan would have a day off since I can't make it to the game today.
Trying to sneak in to look at updates throughout the day
not raining over here in Crystal City, not clearing yet, so should just be a cloudy start to the game.

Go Nats!

He got a PH in last night, didn't he - looked like he had got a good solid shot, just happened to be right to Ross.

I was thinking the same thing, especially after all this talk of giving Morgan and everybody a rest at some point. I read they really just want to use him as a defensive sub, pinch-hitter, and pinch-runner.

Maybe later in the game we will depending on how the outfielders do.

@dcsportsbog Also, Nyjer Morgan is handing out official nicknames to teammates. First up was Ryan Zimmerman, who is now known as "Peter Franchise."
