Nats have been surprisingly competitive against the Cardinals at home, despite the large opposition turn-outs (I still remember the Nats carrying a no-hitter into the late going against them back in RFK days):

2005 - 2L-1W
2006 - 2W-1L
2007 - 3W
2008 - 2L-1W
2009 - 3L-1W
2010 - 3W-1L

Aggregate 11W-9L

I'm predicting the Cards plunk Zim and the benches clear.

That would be pretty low - hitting a guy in his first game back from abdominal surgery.

We need HRod to really be on his game this series - his semi-controlled wildness at 98 mph should help keep the Cards in line.

And we need Coffey and his capri pants on standby.  That image will surely terrify LaRussa and keep him from making dumb decisions.

Oh right, I had forgotten about the "bad blood" with the Cards.

I'm going tonight since the tickets are only $2 and today is my off day from the gym.  Should be interesting to see how this goes.  For some reason I have a feeling Maya is going to get lit up in the third inning but that we'll still win it.  Only part of that is mindfacting.

The problem with Maya, it seems, is that he's generally OK in the early going but it's in that second trip through the batting order where things go off the rails.

I thought that was about catchers running out grounders?   :)

It was because of Nyjer, wasn't it?  Should be water under the bridge...

it almost feels like a 2nd opening day today - Zimm comes back, the team returns home after a good road-trip, and the new restaurants open.  Could this be the 'real' start of Phase 2?

As long as Feffer the Fluffer is still the COO and HRod, Maya, Stares and Bixler are on the 25 man roster, no.

Coffey wears capris? Say it ain't so.
