Nyjer was safe, but why try to steal 3rd with 1 out?

stupid but he was safe there.

Cost us at least 1 run. stealing third is usually never a smart move.

I don't care that Nyjer was safe, that's bad baseball on his part. No need to take that extra base.

My problem with Nyjer stealing third (even though he was clearly safe) is with the exception of a sac-fly Nyjer is going to score anyway... Nyjer would have scored on that Guzman hit from second... Also, I love Rick Eckstein.

He was so safe.

Where have you been? I thought you had given up on us. Were you having Tavarez hangover?

and nevermind back to reality. 

he was safe and we got hosed.  yeah u generally don't want guys taking that base - espec. with a slap hitter and one out - but he was safe.  if it were bernadina you would be drooling over him and saying what great hustle/aggressiveness outta my boy.

I do care that he was safe but yes that's still a dumb move to go for third.

Gotta give props to Rig and Eck for standing up for Morgan and the team. These umpires tonight, both the one at third and behind the plate, have freaked us because we are the lowly Nats.

He's trying to show off. Even though he was safe, it's still a stupid play. He easily scores on a single.

He was trying to manufacture a run. He would have scored from 3rd on a sac fly or even a grounder to the right side.

Haha, company was visiting, but I did keep up with the Nats and they seem to have gotten good while I wasn't looking!  If they start doing bad tonight I'm out of here.
