You are welcome everyone - the game turned around when I left to run errands.
Wrong. It was me leaving my office, Charlie and Dave behind, and listening to the Phillies announcers for my LONG drive home on XM.
By the way, those announcers were highly critical of Joe West's strike zone. Once, Clippard had a pitch called a ball, and the announcers were somewhat incredulous. "Clippard with the pitch, it's ......well, it's called a ball by Joe West, must have been low" Then, they discussed West's deficiencies for a while. Never did they summarize by saying the Nats were getting a raw deal, but on a pitch by pitch basis they were very frank and fair.
