holy crap!  I leave and the Nats come from behind to win it?  WHA?!?!

The offense FINALLY opened up, better late than never.  I'm so relieved the Nats didn't get swept in their opening series, it's just a morale crusher that this team does not need on top of everything else.  A hard fought win for the Nationals.

man, i;m mad i couldn't see this game. 

They'll rerun it, and it will be worth watching. It was great because they had Dmitri Young mic'd up during the game. So you got to hear his comments as well as the sound from all the scrum at the end.

Have to figure a way to get Bellard in the lineup, the guy just has the knack for getting big hits.  And as bad as Young is with the glove, they need his bat in the lineup.  Great win for Manny and the boys!!!

Young was one of the most likeable guys at ST. He tries the patience defensively, but it is fun to watch him and Fick celebrate at the end like that. He's here for his bat, so it was a good guy to have when you need a fly ball.

D-Tank looking good!  Great win.  Congrads to Manny and the boys.

Next up: D-Backs.  The Nats should take some anger out on these guys considering the snakes stole our uniforms.

The reason to move Lopez to short was only if Guzman was going to be out for an extended period of time. Once he went on the DL, it opened the door for Belliard. I'm not a big believer in the notion of what most refer to as "clutch hitting" as everyone will still fail most of the time. But Belliard is a legitimate 2B. With Guzman on the DL, this is no longer a matter of getting Belliard in the lineup. It is now about (or should be about) whether the combo that is in there can keep Guzman out of the lineup for good. Only time will tell if the Lopez/Belliard tandem performs at a level that makes it nonsensical to change.

How could i forget about that. Real lame on the D-Backs part. I think Livo should start Sunday vs Us, but I'm not positive.

Livan is pitching vs Shawn Hill this weekend.

I officially like Young now. I didn't before but now I like him.

Yay!  I'm so glad that they won. :-)  I wish I could have been at the game, but at least I know people who were there. :-)

Hey guys, just got back.  What an awesome game.  It was pretty boring and gloomy until Church hit the homer.  After that, and with the bullpen shutting down the fish, you could just feel that something special had to happen.  I'll be posting some pics later :D

Bang Zoom! Another Curly W Is In the Books!!!

Great job by Gamer Churchie and Kory the Kid.  As expected our bullpen was lights out.

That was an awsome game to watch, even if the first five innings caused you to question why you'd want to sit out in a cold, damp, practically empty (although not by the standard of the Senators games I attended in my youth) stadium.  You could see Sanchez get tired, and he made the mistake of throwing Church what was left of his fastball on the first pitch.  Ryan didn't miss it.  The momentum shifted from there. 

Remembering that Julio was just obtained to be the Fish closer, I kept hoping that the pen would hold the deficit at 2.  Well within Julio's range.  And stranding two runners at third (one thanks to Ray) was improbable but excellent.  Reminds me of the winning formula from the first half of 2005.  Win the game by making it a contest between bullpens.  The Nats need better performances by their starters to make this formula work. 

Dimitri swung at 2-0 pitches in two consecutive at bats.  After the first time we were sure he wouldn't do it on the walk off.  Rules are made to be broken. 

Sitting very close to the field, you saw that all of the Marlins hitters are BUILT.  Uggla must have spent every day of his 9 years in the minors in the weight room.  Rameriez is taller and much more muscular than it looks on TV.  And even their center fielder has the upper body of a catcher.  And no one needs to be told how scary Cabrerra looks, even without the smeared eye black.  That is one scary offense. 

Fick is the gamer he is made out to be.  After he crossed the plate, he was yelling and even high fived the crowd outside the backstop. 
Casto has a natural swing, and hopefully he'll start  putting some liners in the gaps as he gets used to being a major leaguer. 

The RFK official scorer is much too lenient.  Helps the hitters, but I think the pitchers aren't going to appreciate all the "hits" on fielded balls that don't produce outs.  But this year, maybe we need that. 

Awsome come back win.  That's the beauty of baseball.
