Aside from being a bit of a tool and not playing very well, he's been fine. But when was the last time we had a solid closer?  June 2005?

Tool yeah, he's been decent when he pitches though. But unfortunately he hasn't had many opportunities.

Guys. I'm starting to feel like the Nats might not make the postseason...

Earlier in the game the guy in the row in front of me in 208 got a ball. Hit him in the chest and fell in his soda cup. Was that you BIL? 

I was sitting in 207 and a guy in the row right in front of me got a foul ball. While I was in the bathroom, of course.

A standing ovation from how many people? How many people at the game do you actually think know that this is his last home game? I'd say maybe 200 tops.

Give me a break. I'd say about half the people there so at least  15,000 gave him a standing there.

More than fifty years of going to games and never a foul ball

HITTING LOWLIGHT: It was news when Bryce Harper went hitless against the Orioles earlier this week, the first time he had gone three straight games without a hit this season. But at least he drew seven walks in the series. Tonight, the Phillies offered Harper no free passes and still lived to tell the story. Eickhoff struck him out three times, with Harper never looking comfortable at the plate against the rookie right-hander. This was only the fourth time a pitcher struck out the presumptive NL MVP three times in a game this year. The others: Matt Harvey, Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner.

When we got him the Nats were 53-46. They are now 78-75. I'm not mathguy but I think that means the record is 25-29.

But not a whole lot of blame goes towards him.

Thanks.  I wasn't blaming him, just intrigued to see what the impact of his arrival was on the squad, rather than his personal impact.  Not a lot, it would seem.

I have the same kind of luck. I've gone to hundreds of games and caught only one foul ball.

When Philly got the inside the park grand slam, lots of STH and folks hanging around at the top of the section couldn't believe what we all just saw.    At the time, one of the guys keepin' score said they scored it as a hit.   Did they change it?
