Rain delays?  I guess with the crooked contracts that went into that dump, the roof probably leaks...

Forgot about that (retractable roof), deleted that line (although your point is well taken).

Besides, Hialeah bylaws probably prohibit the playing of baseball when weather interferes with the agitprop being beamed to Cuba on Radio Marti.

Multi-tasking (Steelers and Nats).   Holy crap, what a wild start to the Steelers game.

Will be catching just the first few innings myself - got a Mystics home match (potential playoff-berth clincher, albeit against a difficult opponent) later this afternoon.

Slowes confirms roof is closed for this one.

One-two-three with two strike-outs - good first inning for Strasburg. Now could we get him some runs....

They were saying 401 feet, but that sounds impossibly low.

I thought the balk call was fair, it seemed pretty blatant. No excuse for these walks though.
