I hate off days, thank god there's baseball tonight.  I'm gonna be so upset when this season is over, even if it's been a crappy one.  Baseball is the greatest sport and we've made a lot of progress over the last month.

Record since "Youth Movement" began on August 1st: 18-20.

Not bad considering there was a nasty 12-game losing streak in that stretch.

This team just needs to become more consistent. They are too streaky. In that 38 game stretch they had a 6-1 stretch, an 0-12 stretch, and an 8-1 stretch.

Need to just focus on winning series. No reason we can't take 2 of 3 from Florida and then maybe 3 of 4 from the Mutts next week at home.  :pray:

agreed. 2/3 vs the Marlins is realistic. i'm already eagerly anticipating the season series finale vs the Mutts.

i predict Dukes will have a 3 hr series in front of his family and friends (they were in attendance last time). one routine multi-homer game.

I can't believe we are playing some of the last games of the season. Life is going to be so cold without baseball. I guess that's why we play hockey in the meantime. ;)

Anyone else notice Darth Vader hanging out on the 16th in the schedule? :lol: For some new video game.

There are times when I could actually flip that statement.  I absolutely love college hockey's conference play.  I go to as many games as I can.

Martis is facing a pretty tough lineup in his first start w/ us. He definitely needs to keep the walks to a minimum.

2nd start. It is a tough lineup. I think he'll rack up some Ks but will give up a few long balls.

Holy crap. I must have missed more games than I thought. I thought it had been a while since I first heard he was going to start for us. :?

He started the night the Redskins lost to the Giants.

That makes sense. I guess a lot of people missed it.

The Marlins have always been a monkey, I mean fish, on the Nats back. We need to buck'em.

Scott Olsen is 0-6 with a 6.08 ERA over his last 9 starts.

Guess we all know what that means...  :bang:

I say we score 5 runs tonight.
I don't think that will be enough to win this one.

The Force Unleashed.

interesting. that seems like a title more fit for Dukes when he crushes a homer!
