BTW, Verizon service at NATS Park is intermittent!   >:(

AT&T coverage at Nats Park is intermittent

I'm going to try for every game this homestand, I'll be late to the first two, but...I wanna see if I can hang for 11 straight home games.

Maybe the Nats should wear Energy Domes for batting practice.  Werth in an Energy Dome would be so right.

Maybe that should replace the Ol Elvis wig for player of the game!  Trouble is, these guys are too young to remember Devo!

Capital Weather Gang's NatCast has for tonight: 'Pleasantly warm with no rain worries make for a delightful evening, especially if the Nats can get back on a winning streak' - low 80's at first pitch, mid-70's by ninth inning, 1% chance of rain.
