It definitely remains to be seen, but there's a logic to it. I'm thinking maybe he's more plugged in than many of us. Maybe.
Remains to be seen- two extra at league minimium vs a dh at starting player salary

Shrug. I guess those things are immutable? It was an interesting discussion.

If real outlets report it, I'd be inclined to take the possibility more seriously

From first place to two and a half out of last, with series coming up in Philly and Atlanta this time next week likely as not we're in the basement.

No, that's Natitude. One T.

It's a long season. Peaks and valleys, peaks and valleys....

I am still hoping we can remain .500 for this stretch. This should be the best part of the schedule but we have failed to build a dominate team by ignoring holes. Buckle up, could be a rough ride. Strasburg better save our collective ass today, I'd hate to swept by the O's. :?

O.M.G. I just hope you're not that anal in real life. He spelled it "Nattitude."

Geez BiL. This seems to be your retort to everything lately. It would be in your best interest to learn not to leap to conclusions and sterotype people whose opinion differ from your own.

The season has been saved for at least a day.  I'll be watching the games this week at a sports bar with a Phillies fan, there will be Nats victories.

Nattitude with two t's is actually the way it should be spelled.  There's no logical reason to spell it with one t because the missing letter is also a t so "Nat" is full represented just by adding the N to the beginning.

No, not to everything, just to PB. Really, correcting how many Ts are in Natitude? I'm sorry, but that's about as anal as you can be. Dude has issues.

If I didn't believe against putting posters on Ignore, PB would be the first and probably only one.

Weird thing I learned today: David Foster Wallace thought Alanis was amazing and after publishing Infinite Jest, confessed that if being a famous writer meant that somehow Alanis would invite him over for tea sometime, that would be his fantasy come true.

Plenty of time to do that - he's wormmeat.

I was about to go in a diatribe about not being able to complete a sweep until I checked the other teams and discovered that quite a few teams haven't completed sweeps this season.  The Nationals are among a group of eight that haven't.  The others are the Cubs, Rockies, Reds,  A's, Pirates, Padres and Giants.  Of that group, only the Reds would be considered a "good team" and they can drop off the list if they beat the Braves tomorrow.  It's also worth noting that four the teams have beaten the Nationals in games that prevented the Nationals from completing sweeps.

One thing I've noticed about Harper. He's a horrible outfielder and I don't think he will ever get better.

I thought this would be the appropriate place to post that thought.

Agreed, bringing him up too early sidetracked any chance he had of properly learning the position.
