THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Thursday 19th August 2005 saw the Nats begin their fourth and final stand of this interminable away trip with a 1-nil loss at the Mets...record now 64-58...http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250819121.
Unfortunately didn't get to see any of the actual baseball yesterday due to the lengthy rain delay - headed up to the Mystics (they won 75-71 over the Chicago Sky in OT). I was heading home from the Mystics and saw a few people in Nats colours getting on at L'Enfant looking somewhat less-than-enthusiastic - feared the worst - but got the good news when I put my radio on when I got home. United drew 1-1 with Philadelphia at RFK, so it was almost a sweep for the local sides yesterday.
