Wanna talk writing on the wall? "Orel, what are you doing in this booth? We never needed 3 in a booth before?"
Too bad about Miller, but keeping Orel is a no-brainer, the main is a born color commentator.
That seriously happened?
After a few months of silence, I think I'm probably done as a Nationals blogger.Since about April, my blogging time has been eaten up by all sorts of other things, mainly related to moving from the DC area to Portland, Maine. Then I was working day and night for the last month or so on the election. But now that I have a little more time, I'm still just not feeling the vibe.I always said I would keep doing this only as long as it was fun, and I haven't been able to think of anything that would be fun to write about for a while.I will still root for the Nationals--I sure as shootin' will never root for the Red Sox. I'll actually have an easier time seeing games now that I don't have to deal with the stupid MLB.tv blackouts.For the record, I think the Nationals are in better shape organizationally than at anytime since they came to DC. There's the influx of premium talent from the #1 picks. Since Aaron Crow, the Lerners have basically spent like normal MLB owners. Mike Rizzo's been competent, and getting Stan Kasten out of the way I think helps, because now you FINALLY have a clear top-down structure with a baseball person reporting to the owners.Other than Jim Bowden, the team and MASN have always been incredibly gracious to me. I really appreciate all they've done with the blogger days and the responsiveness to inquiries.Anyway, thanks for the eyeballs and the comments and the links. It's been fun. If I feel the bug again, maybe I'll come back. But for now, the blog is closed. See ya.Posted by Steven at 2:04 PM
Hershiser sucks. ESPN should get rid of him too.
Too bad they fired Jon Miller as well.He was quality.
the Nats need to be picking up the phone right now to call Jon Miller.
Didn't Angelos fire Miller already?
In a sort of related vein, the guy that runs the "Fire Jim Bowden" blog is calling it quits.http://firejimbowden.blogspot.com/
Tragic. I've always loved Steve over on FJB even though we didn't always agree and I think the Natosphere will be missing a valuable voice of team criticism.
Always struck me as a message board like this is a good place for an irregular post to kick off discussion or for a comment short of a post. Maybe you can suggest to him to post here on occasion?
he doesn't have the time to devote to an online message board persona.
I didn't realize I was supposed to be creating an online persona. I thought I was just posting as me.
