A very good performance all around. Team has the ability to do well but can they consistently?

Also Escobar needs to go. Whoever is in AAA can surely not be any worse than him

Eight runs on 20 hits in the first four games. Eleven runs on 15 hits in 8 innings so far tonight.

Also, seven walks, compared to just five in the four games against the Mets.

Soto is rolling over a lot of pitches this year so far. Not much the other way.

As bas as Angel is, he's not that bad. He was punishing the pitcher for some reason on those two pitches.

Escobar might be the weak link in the lineup. Nats caught lightning in a bottle last year with his production. He’s best suited as a backup.

All good vibes tonight.

Thanks Bluestreak.  OC may be away in Vilnius.  Or Barcelona.  Or London. Or . . .

Looking at that table, '07 and '09 look like painful starts.  '07 got Frank replaced by Manny Acta, right?
