I know the division is rebuilding and had some injuries, but clinching 3 weeks before the end of the regular season is Pats-like. 
Except for the part where the Pats win in the postseason

Bryce commenting to Kolko about how if we didn't have the young guys stepping up and doing what they did this year (with reference to the injuries to regulars) then he wouldn't have "champaigne running down the crack of his ass"

Pretty safe bet that if they're inviting fans to stay, they're not going to lock everyone's cars in.

Not taking that chance. Why could they not make an announcement. If that was the case. The Nats suits just have no clue or don't  ca re

Anybody notice Stras' show of emotion on the double play?      Outstanding.

He could easily afford to do that anytime he wants, but it would have been in a different context.

It could be where the expression "Crack open that bottle of wine, will ya" might come from at some point down the road.

Got to the Park around 12:15.    Missus humored me and accompanied me to the Loft.    Bought a beer and headed to the sunshine on the overhangs below.   The Loft was damned near empty.     Missus stayed in the shade.    Put my beer down on the ledge/counter.    It was a beautiful, sunny early September day.   The blue sky was clear and as usual, there was a breeze.     The grounds crew was watering the infield.     It was a Zen like moment.    I knew then that we'd clinch.      Closed my eyes and the PA put out this tune:

They talked about this on the radio today. He's pitching like he's got something to prove. I think he's sick of people thinking he's soft and frail. I hope he dominates in October. He's still the guy I love to pitch the most and there is just something satisfying about watching him put up double digit Ks and just mow through lineups.

That fired up the crowd around 116.    Buzz went on for several minutes.

I made a huge mistake by not going because I have tickets for Tuesday and I gambled that it wouldn't happen on Sunday. I had a late night Saturday night (celebrated wedding anniversary) and just couldn't rally. I'm still kicking myself. NANF. ;)

on that play, it was a heck of turn by Difo, too.  Sanchez made the grab, but the throw was high. Difo plucked it and turned witht he runner on top of him.

He does and he should be.
