Not $126 million worth, but solid.

It's not your money, why do you care?

I'm still convinced that I'm faster than Morse.

He does lumber.

Other than that extended slump, Werth has been pretty good for us.

Why the hell is Strasburg still in the game?  The bottom of the 5th took forever so he should have been done after 5.

He's probably busy thinking about feeding his three families.

But that almost never will happen with the Nationals...long innings at bat.

Not this much.  These balls are being crushed.

That's what happens when sinkers don't sink.  Ordinarily they do and you get tons of ground balls.

It's over and they lost his perfect game.  He gave up a double in the 6th.

He hit a batter so he couldn't have had a perfect game.

What difference does it make?  We're not scoring four runs against their bullpen.

Isn't that still perfect?  It's not a walk.

No. It's a no hitter. A perfect game requires retiring every batter faced.

OK, fans. is this lineup better than the one with Morse at 1B and platooning Gomes / Nix in left?

I think I'll call it a night and watch something less depressing like the "Clubbing Baby Seals Network."
