4 minutes and 20 seconds, about as long as it takes flies to find my pile of crab guts.

i think the nats are like 1-8 against dempster all-time, which is amazing.  he hasn't been very good this year, but then again we weren't very good against rodrigo LOLopez last night.

Anyone know the XM station?  XM - MLB Radio Info doesn't have it listed and my IT filter at work prevents me from using the Sirius-XM website.

A series win is pretty key considering we go up against Philly next.

The game's not listed, probably because it's a rain makeup.

Thanks for checking.  I'm sure it'll be on and I'll just have to find it.

Incidentally, I've got Radio Margaritaville on right now and there's a song appropriate for spoprtsnyan882 on right now:

""Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"
Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right" - I won't worry!
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

However, if the Nats do win today this will make three consecutive seasons in which they've won the Wrigley leg of this series (2W-1L each time), and the fourth time overall they've done this (also 2005 when they swept the Cubs there).

Since my dear departed Dad was a Cubs fan, and we're waiting around for the game start, I have a trivia question:

Which Cubs player (in 155 games) had 35 2Bs, 56 HRs, 191 RBIs  :shock:, only 84 SOs and 105 BBs, batted .356/.454./.723 with an OPS of 1.177?  Which year?

Beast Mode Morse, for comparison, in 105 games, has 27 2Bs, 20HRs, 68 RBIs, and is batting .320/.367/.556 with a .923 OPS.

I'm aware, but usually the Cubs in the past few years have been sold out for every single game. However with the struggles of the last 2 years their attendance has really declined.
