And handed over to Cope who volunteered to take it back to Turner Field for a memorial:



However, we regret to inform the Atlanta faithful that in Cope's haste to catch up to a group of honeys on the subway on his way to the airport:



Yes, he dropped the urn which resulted in:

Our line up has a spring training feel to it. Really wanted the sweep but it looks like a lot of automatic outs.. couple that with Strasburgs problems keeping the ball in the park against the Braves and my worry is slowly creeping back in..

Who do you mean? I think even Espinosa has a good chance to crush the ball against Harang.

Two free tickets (can e-mail them) if anyone can make it on short notice.  I'm being slowly tortured in a client meeting & won't be able to make it.  RCR tickets in the 300s.  Must be someone I know from this board and not some pig-nosed Barf (Barve?).  PM me

How many of you actually attend games regularly/have season tickets?  Man I live 15 hours away.  I've seen a 3 game series in Toronto in 2012 (which the Nats swept) but I'd love to go down to DC for some games.  You guys are so fortunate to be able to go anytime you feel like it :-)

I have 15 games from a season ticket group and attend probably 20 a year.

It's awesome. :D

Partly cloudy to the west.   Hope it comes your way.    Is anything more bait and switch than buying tires?    Probably  ...   :)

That may be my next visit.    I've hit most of the places along Route 28 in NoVa.    Ya get different info (quotes) from the net than ya do onsite.

Should have given more guys the day off. Let Souza play RF for Werth. Let Taylor play CF for Span. TySizzle could have hit cleanup for ALR.

Heck, Kobernus should have started at second to give Cabrera a spell.

Could have been the Syracuse Nationals out there today. Bryce might have even hit higher than sixth.

Frandsen's getting hot at the right time.
