This is Olsen's best game of the year.

He had a great game against the Braves earlier this season, too.

Better than the no-no he took into the 7th or 8th or whatever it was?  I don't think so.

The Nats overall have always played well while facing the Braves

This is the better pitched game, I think.  He just gave up the hit earlier.

I wonder how all those incentrives factor into arbitration hearings. Regardless, he's earned his 250k tonight.

That could be.  They're clearly #s 1 and 2.

I wonder if The Woman will have a brainfart and double-switch for Nieves so that Morse or Kennedy has to catch.

Had a conversation with a Braves fan friend of mine just this morning.  Saying we play well when we play Atlanta and New York but can't touch Florida or Philly.  He says they play well vs. Florida and Philly and struggle with the Mets.  Weird how that works out.

Guess I was right about desmond having the potential of being a solid #2 hitter.

This homeplate umpire is being much more generous with Minor than he is with Olsen.

If I weren't lazy, I'd go back and screen shot a horrid ball call against Minor.

Hammondsnats is right again.  Good think Riggleman listened to you. :P

He's getting low strikes and outside strikes more than Olsen is, especially outside.

That looks good ... but I don't like eating sweets with beer.

That change minor threw to punch out zim was his best pitch of the night.
