Fedde wastes so many pitches nibbling with the back half of the order.

Yeah, if you're not a baseball or football fan, about all you know about Baltimore is cakes and gritty crime dramas.

And, to be fair, even though the shop is called "Charm City Cakes," I didn't realize Ace of Cakes took place in Baltimore. Although that's more because I never actually watched the show and only knew Duff from other appearances on the Food Network like Iron Chef America.

Clark Griffith should have voted to allow Bill Veeck to move the Browns to Kansas City, rather than to have allowed the Hoffbergers to buy the Browns and move them to that minor league town within the Nats' fan-ship area.

In 1950 Baltimore was the 6th largest city in the U.S., so the idea that it is a major league city is hardly surprising. It has weathered the decline of the former large manufacturing/industrial city powerhouses since then particularly badly, and has fallen to 30th in size. The metropolitan area is still the 20th largest by population and has a pretty high median income, so being the home of major sports franchises is justifiable.

Nashville's MSA is 35th, by the way, so there's no reason to believe it would necessarily be a better baseball market.

Every time Carl Edwards, Jr. comes on to pitch, I get a hankering for a hamburger.

Whole bullpen was good tonight.

Every time Kyle Finnegan comes in, I think, "Well, that's two runs the Nats will need to get back...somehow".

Watch the seconf TV commercial for National Boh. They were the TV sponsors of Nats; games abut 1956. The first one, the Lord Baltimore song, was after Nationa Beer gave up the Nats...maybe the early 1960s, when the expansion team took the name.

Here, for those younger fans, is an explanation of the National Brewing Company. Jerry Hoffberger, who owned National, must have paid the Griffith family for an "easement" of the Browns into Baltimore...by promising to sponsor the Nats for a few years. Washington's old sponsor, Heurich's Beer (makers of Old Georgetown) closed about 1954, several years after old Mr. (Christian) Heurich had died. The Heurich family sold off the brewery to what became Watergate, and sold off the country estate to what became Prince George's Plaza.

He's fine as middle relief. Its when he gets in high leverage that he struggles.

it's the long way home.

The pitching formula worked as intended. The relievers looked dominant, and Fedde never found himself in the sinkhole inning.
