Putting my 1.000 winning percentage on the line, especially with Bryce suspended. Have faith in Stras!

Over/under before a poster nages about FP?

I'm interested to see what this lineup can do with a DH.

Hopefully more than they did in Baltimore. 

Just pulled a ribeye off the grill, so I expect good things.

Think about the above lineup with Eaton in CF, Harper in RF. Nice.

Not that we will see it this year...

C'mon....it was a simple joke and given my tendency to stand up for FP....I had to go back and edit my original post. 😀

Athletics announcers talking about when the Nats played at RFK and the very short right field fence???? Wonder what they had it confused with?

Yeah RFK was no bandbox by any definition of the term. Also, the Nats swept them at RFK so maybe their brains are fried from the experience.

2005. Not sure if they were the announcers back then. Makes you wonder how many things Carp and FP make up.

If you really pay attention to your team you catch all sorts of bullcrap that national media says about them. I hear stuff on ESPN and NFL Network about the Redskins that is just plain wrong all the time but that if you don't follow the team closely you wouldn't know.
