Hi!  Thank you for the add.  Raised in DC on the Nats.  Currently live in LA, but still true to my team! :D

Welcome! But if you were raised on the Nats, you’re WAY too young for this forum. 😉

This is the 13th year for the new Nats so maybe he's young instead. 😉

If he was 8 - 10 or so in 2005, then he was raised on Christian Guzman and he still likes baseball!

Hi HotShot - welcome to a great baseball group that due to the industry of the area, can divert off enough that it makes one wonder if baseball is why we are on WNFF.  So do you get to many Nats games ?

Not nearly as many as I did prior to the move to Nats Park. Living in the Annapolis area, the old RFK location was easier to drive to/park at than Nats Park is. Still make it to a decent number.

Thanks to all the welcomers. Some impressive knowledge on display here.

imref, after my dad retired from the military, we lived both in Rockland County (up the Hudson, maybe 20 miles north of Times Square) and out in Suffolk County on Long Island.

Hey Nats Fam,

In 2005 I took a middle school field trip to DC.  It just so happened to cross paths with Opening Day and I decided I was going to be a Nats fan.  Call it the patriotic colors or the fact I watched my father cry at the Bartman game but I decided the life of a Cubs fan was not for me.  Since then I have made a yearly exodus to the Holy Land in DC and faithly attended all games in the Midwest.  Nearly snagged a Goodwin homer last year at Wrigley and am still pretty bitter.  I also do a fair bit of work in AZ and CO so I try to catch our series out west as much as possible.  I live in South Bend, IN and have season tickets for Irish football.  If a Nats fan is ever in town looking for a tailgate you're always welcome.

Go Nats!

Phil from Springfield - impelled to migrate from the now defunct MLB Message Boards (phil62175).  Happy to be a serious Nationals fan.  Like the Wizards.  Don't care about the Redskins.  Duke alum ('83) -- just say 'yes' to Duke basketball!!! 

On the MLB Message board, the conclusion most of us reached (for better or worse) is that Nats management is being super frugal at this time, even in a buyers' free agent market.  Money is definitely an object.

welcome!   I think the other take on the spending is they aren't willing to damage the draft and the ability to sign kids out of the dominican to lock in a lot of the bigger names like Arrieta / Lynn / Cobb at this point when they think they are already winning the division.  They probably are more targeting mid-season upgrades through trade rather than tweaking things by bringing in Lucroy or one of those arms.
