did a good job disguising the intent by loading the bases before it
It just seemed like he was frustrated with the umpire and figured if was going to have to throw a pitch likely to score a run, might as well make it hurt.

Or for just the sake of knee-jerk reactions.

So 7 runs without an extra base hit.   That doesn’t happen often.

Why is Castro running with a 6 run lead?

That’s just poor baserunning by Castro. If you are going to break for home go hard.

That was a heck of a shimmy by Castro.  Too badit is not a dance contest.

Maybe. But people are still referring to the DH is if it’s a gimmick and it’s older than I am.

Lol, why are we safety squeezing with a 6 run lead. This isnt college.

Avoid the DP.  Probably would have been better off just starting the runner at first.  Check with Davey.

So Ross with 3 good starts out of 4.  Same for Fedde.  And Max has been great except for those solo home runs in his first start.  Much better than one would expect with Corbon struggling and Strasburg/Lester hurt.  Too bad we have a lineup full of singles hitters.

It's a gimmick that has taken over baseball at every level:  High school, college and the minors.  Resistance is futile.

Uh, Smoltz is a bright guy, knows his baseball, but isn't a play by play team supposed to talk a bit about the game? Ross is an AAAA pitcher who's tossed 2 gems our of 3 before this, and dominating a pretty expensive lineup.

Lol, you must be new to  nationally televised games.

Honestly, despite the score, this is boring as crap. Ross isnt dominating with strikeouts. The Nats arent hitting crushing homers.

I'd kind of like a HoF pitcher telling me what he thinks Ross is doing, even if he thinks it's smoke and mirrors

It's too bad Glavine and Maddux didn't go into broadcasting instead of him.  You know the bright guys who knew how to pitch.
