I'm fine with how it turned out. I'd also be fine with someone sliding hard into 3rd.

Yep.    You could feel it comin' and it was controlled rage.    Everybody got the message.   Plus, the HP Ump is 6' 7".    :)

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeriste Bob.    It's the freakin' Allegheny.    He pulled the same crap last night.    I think he wants me to buy him a beer.    It's on.

I mean seriously. You would think after what happened to Fernandez that people would be respectful and not act like a complete @$$hole on a day like today.

I'm a Latos fan.    Hated him in Cincinnati.

OT:    Don't know who gets the Post but "Second Glance" in the magazine this week features Nats' Park.

Nope. Hitting him would have been better. I pray Espinosa gets a reason to slide in at 3rd.

Not a reason. Just an opportunity. Pirates announcers claim that Kang had a reason to trick Harper into sliding. Opportunity seems to be the same as a reason. Why Espinosa? He probably wears plenty of armor to protect against HBP. Otherwise, let Ramos pinch-run if a Nats gets to 2B. Feet-first "slide" toward Kan's knees.

Who was that enormous catcher Espinosa tackled recently?

Latos was walkin' off the field on the pop up down the RF line.

It's been a long game so far.  2 hours and not even to the 1/2 way point

Seems like the whole series has been like this.

I think it's safe to say Latos sucks balls

He's good at balls. He sucks at strikes.
