Play 2nd?

I meant just how he performs in general. Would love to see a multi-hit game from him.

Yep. Would love to see Lombo hit his way into more PT and pressure Espi a bit.

138.  Not my preferred section, but I'll take it.  (Plus, might move ourselves down a little closer around midgame ---- sshhh, don't tell!)

that's the way to do it- much more success and I'm going to have to consider a partial plan

it's impossible to watch MASN.  they are all ripping davey for making the comment, "hey i don't even know if brooks robinson can make that play" - talking about some of zimmerman's highlight reels.

tom davis/mel antolen or whatever ... just terrible.

A bunch of Orioles stooges ripping the Nationals manager for making a favorable comparison between a current Nationals player and a HoF Orioles player?  Positively shocking, I say!

I would love for someone associated with the team (davvy or a player with a long term deal are probably the only ones with the security to do it) to just rip MASN as the Os shill it is

Tom Davis reminds me of Poopy McPoop. At the very beginning he was saying something like, 'Don't the Nats have to win this series? They would look really bad if they don't beat the Astros.' I paraphrase but it was something like that.

Going out for a quick run. Don't let them start until I get back.

It's why I run at 0300.

Davey says Espi's day off is "a mental break" and that he's been "pressing".  Also thinking about giving Zim "a blow" for the same reason.

It's a psychological ploy, Zim will go 5 for 5 with 2 HR tonight to show Davey he doesn't need it, and Davey is just :stir: Zim.

Players get paid to play. Zim can rest in November.

So...despite the fact that the Astros are not on TV tonight in Texas, I'm blacked out on MLB.tv? I think this happened once before, then they let me in once the game started.

the mid atlantic sports report is probably some of the worst sports programming out there. pretty embarassingly bad for a network as "big" as MASN.

I've given it a couple of shots, but it is unwatchable.

Stras looking real good early.  Wonder how long it will be until he "earns" those borderline calls.
