I never in a million years thought I'd be happier seeing Drew in the lineup over Anthony, but there it is  :|

I was pissed when I first saw that Drew wasn't at SS before I realized we were giving Rendon a day off.

Huh, that's odd because in a postgame comment, one of the WaPo reporters (Chelsea maybe) tweeted that Dusty was planning to give Drew the day off today to avoid over-using him. But he does hit Lynn better than Rendon does, so maybe that's it, or maybe Tony just needs a break.

It's temporary. Tony will get better.

I'm not at home so can't rewind. I'd swear on that replay ESPN showed Fowler was about 10 feet off 2nd when Zimmerman caught then dropped the ball. I didn't think Fowler went back before going to 3rd. After the appeal ESPN didn't show it again.

I also thought I saw a safe signal given on the popup.

Buchholz looks like he's going for the weekly Guthrie Award against the Muffs.

Horrible call.  That ump should be fired on the spot.

These quick replays this year are a lot better. I know, small sample size.

Driving his pitch count up. That's a good thing given their crappy bullpen.
