P-Nats lead their series 2-1 and can wrap it up tonight at Potomac.  They erased a 7-2 deficit and won 12-7 last night.

Couldn't go last night and can't go tonight.  So kind of hoping that they lose tonight so I can go tomorrow (or Friday assuming tomorrow would be rained out).
Continuing story of no news on the new stadium.

Props to Pedro Severino. Not a great year with the bat but seems like he did a great job leading the pitching staff.

Hagerstown came back tonight and won! :shock:

They were down by three but had a five run sixth inning and ended up winning 6-3.

Championship series concludes tomorrow, Game 5 in Hagerstown.

Another championship for a Nats team?

At the game - go Suns!!  Pivetta struck out the side in the first but made a throwing error and looked a bit flustered after that. But recovered to get the third out. Lots of fan energy tonight

Realized I wasn't clear - the error led to a rim. Tourists 1 Suns 0 top of 3rd.

Pivetta out after giving up 4. Johns in to start the 6th. Feels like this is slipping away - Tourist pitcher Wade is very impressive.

The number one theme night to attend in all of Minor League Baseball will take place at the Home of the Potomac Nationals in 2015. Paying tribute to one of the most popular cult film classics of all time, the P-Nats are proud to host “The Goonies 30th Anniversary Night” featuring a post-game showing of the movie on the outfield video board. The Pfitz will be blanketed by Goonies-themed activities including a Goonies Treasure Hunt, Goonies Costume Contest, and Goonies Trivia. A to-be-determined Goonies cast member will be on hand to meet and greet fans while signing autographs, fans in attendance will receive a one-of-a-kind “One-Eyed Willie” bobblehead upon entrance to The Pfitz, P-Nats players and coaches will wear Goonies-themed jerseys which will be signed and auctioned off, and much, much more. Additionally, any one-eyed fans will receive free admission to “Goonies Night.”
 
The trademark event night of the 2015 season will be the return of the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo with Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard & Team Ghost Riders after a terrific reception to their exceptional performance in 2014. As seen on ESPN’s E:60 program, the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo is an internationally recognized live animal entertainment act that features capuchin monkeys riding sheep dogs herding livestock. Lepard and Team Ghost Riders have performed at destinations around Minor League Baseball, and also at the home of the National Football League’s Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
 
After “Promo of the Month” award recognition from Minor League Baseball in 2014, “Beard-A-Palooza, The Sequel” will be a part of the Nationals’ 2015 promo plans. This hairy hallmark of the P-Nats’ fan experience last season included the Beard Olympics, opening and closing Beard-A-monies, and the crowning of the Beard Olympics Champion. The fuzzy festivities will be back and better than ever.
 
Military members and their families on hand for Military Appreciation Night at The Pfitz in 2015 will be graced by an appearance from a very special celebrity guest with a military background, who will meet and greet fans, take photographs, and sign autographs. Additionally, the P-Nats’ faithful will receive a camouflage t-shirt on their way through the gates.
 
Mother’s Day 2015 will include a ticket discount and perks for Moms in addition to a pink jersey day auction at Pfitzner Stadium while a Father’s Day picnic celebration is ticketed to treat Dads to a relaxing day at the ballpark complemented by a Superhero Day themed jersey auction.
 
An Independence Day Weekend extravaganza will feature the best fireworks show in Northern Virginia along with red, white, and blue festivities on Saturday, July 4th and Sunday, July 5th.
 
Back due to popular demand, a trio of Community Nights will dot the 2015 Nationals’ schedule in which official sponsors of the Potomac Nationals will distribute complimentary general admission tickets to their employees, clients, customers, and friends to proliferate the affordable family friendly atmosphere that P-Nats Baseball is all about.

ATrue to its billing as the most entertaining promotional lineup in the history of the franchise, the P-Nats’ promo docket will unveil a trio of premium collectable figure giveaways in 2015 including a Wilson Ramos half-man, half-buffalo “Buff-A-rine,” a Michael Taylor “Flattop” Major League Debut bobblehead with faux hair, and a Steven Souza Jr. “The Catch” figurine commemorating his no-hitter clinching web gem behind Washington Nationals RHP Jordan Zimmermann on the final day of the 2014 regular season.

Minor league signing - Clint Robinson, 1B. 
http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=robins001cli

Nice AAA stats over close to 1800 PAs - .303 / .392 / .494, with 56 HRs.  However, he's going to be 30 next spring and most off those numbers were piled up in Omaha and Albuquerque.

BB America's latest list of our top 10 prospects:

1. Giolito
2. Taylor
3. Lopez
4. Fedde
5. Souza
6. Cole
7. Difo
8. Ward
9. Goodwin
10. Pivetta

I'd say it's likely that Cole, Taylor, and Souza will all spend more time with the big league club than at Syracuse next year.

Who's Pivetta?

Nick Pivetta  drafted in 2013. He's listed at 6'5" 220 lbs. Sounds like Rizzo beef

Rizzo quietly filling in holes. Needed to replace Justin Bloxom.

12/20- Also signed 31-year old career minor league utility guy Mark Minicozzi

News on PNats new stadium. 

http://m.insidenova.com/headlines/p-nats-ink-deal-with-f-h-furr-for-new/article_520863dc-8a45-11e4-a834-8fac7149b542.html?mode=jqm

New digs should have good toilets. 



when we needed a new heat pump a few years back we were advised not to use Furr.  They had a pretty good price through Costco, but we ended up going with another company for about $100 more, and haven't had any problems (so far.....)

I've never used them either.  Guy down the street used to work for them.
They do lots of advertising so it's not surprising they would do this.  Still not clear when they will break ground.
