They used to at least pretend to tolerate Phil Wood. Not so much anymore.
Just like every Nats fan...

7th inning on SNY also. Ralph Kiner makes the contrast with FP even more painful. Kiner speaks with a slur -- a stroke I think -- and says ten times as much as FP with the jabbering about "taters" and "slide-pieces". Just heard Kiner analyze Ankiel's catch...led to discussion of how fielders get an idea of what pitch is being thrown.

I liked that balk. Easy to see Terry Collins getting more and more...ummm...angry.

7th inning...I have a feeling that some explosions are about to happen.

At the end of the late edition of sportscenter they said this is the first time since 1924 that a Washington team swept a team from New York in New York. So then the other dude (I forget his name) asks if that was the Senators. His partner acts like a deer in the headlights and says he doesn't know and asks someone to check on it. How the freak does someone who works in that industry and has presumably been following sports for who knows how many decades not know immediately that if the record dates back to 1924 it has to be the Senators over the Yankees?  :?

Checking back on the record it appears the four game sweep came at the tail end of a road trip that began with a doubleheader on May 30th and culminated with the four game sweep of the yankees on JUNE 25th! Adding to the schedule irregularities of the era, the Nats then came home for a homestand that began on June 26th and they didn't play another road game until July 26th, a stretch of 34 home games!  :shock:

Just another pretty face with a good on air presence.    Depth of knowledge is not a job necessity.

Records against the NL East:

2011: 27-32 (.458)
2010: 30-42 (.417)
2009: 25-47 (.347)
2008: 27-44 (.380)
2007: 32-40 (.444)
2006: 31-42 (.425)
2005: 34-41 (.453)

This year we have been definitely competitive against the Phils, Braves, and Mets (1 game under overall) but we only have 4 wins against the Marlins in 12 games :?

David Wright's error last night gave him 8 in last 10 games, the first Mets third baseman to make 8 errors in a 10-game span. #eightwrongsmakeawright

...actually that happened Wednesday with the loss to St Louis (they won at LA yesterday).

But 1992, their last winning year...how long ago was that?

- Rod Langway was still at the Capitals (beginning his final season)
- Caps and Bullets still had five years to go at CapCentre before moving to the Phone Booth, and Redskins (still pre-Snyder) were still at RFK
- That was the calendar year in which the Redskins won their last Super Bowl
- AM-980 was still WWRC (did not switch to sports radio format till the following year)
- Blue Jays over Braves in World Series (first of two titles, the second featuring Joe Carter applying the coup de grace to the Phillies)
- Curse of the Bambino still had 12 years left
- Nolan Ryan in next-to-last season of his career
- MJ-led Bulls won only the second of their six titles that year
- Penguins win second of Lemieux-led Stanley Cups (and Jagr's last Cup Final trip)
- NFL still in LA, original Browns still in Cleveland, Oilers still in Houston
- Nordiques still in Quebec City, original Jets still in Winnipeg, Whalers still in Hartford
- MLS and WNBA still four and five years away respectively
- George Bush Sr's final full year in office
- First full calendar year since Soviet Union de jure went out of business
- Woodward & Lothrop was still open
- Czechoslovakia's final year as a single country (split up New Year's 1993)
- Debut season of Preparation H Park at Camden Yards
- Still 13 years to go before baseball would return to DC
- Of the players the Nationals took in this year's draft, five were born that year and five others weren't even born (none higher than 15th round in either case)

I turned exactly 40 that year, and my niece - who entered university this past week - wasn't born yet.
