The Tuesday and Wednesday attendances of 36,985 and 35,806 (respectively) are the Nats' best-ever against the Giants (best we ever did at RFK was 33,358 on 25th July 2006).

That's great because back in RFK days with Barry Bonds in full force the Giants were one of the top draws.  That HR he hit to the upper deck was a shot, it was still going up when it hit the mezzanine.

For true seamheads 2009 was the ultimate year to be a Nats fan as we watched the seeds of excellence start to sprout.


Looking back on it but it sucked at the time.   I look at OC's stats and goodness   ...   what an ugly year.




I just thought I'd throw this out there... I really like Solano. He's been preforming for such short playing time.


I do too. I'm at the point where I'd like him and Flores to go 50/50 on playing time. Flores always seems to hit better when he's had a day off.

What may have dragged attendance against the Giants down in RFK days was the fact that in all three RFK seasons our home series against them was after the All-Star break, when the team was pretty much out of it (even in the year of the '05 Overachievers we played them at home in September - in fact that was our last non-divisional home series of the season).

The 1924 Nats hat got some mad love yesterday.  Hard not when you look this sharp:
