Got to my seats after the National Anthem. Metro was unusually clustered. Missed the bobblehead coming in. 

Is a scoreless 1st a moral victory?

Had to work so bailed on this game.  Just as well, watching adults trying to steal bobbleheads is profoundly depressing

I had a thought today that Espino may be a low return trade piece with his versatility. Good to see him give up a couple homers to rid me of that idea.

ks would have hurt less, but there's no k in Keibert. Sort of.

If we're doing chants, this evening, then our 2022 Nationals deserve an old English soccer perennial... ;)  (for the uninitiated, it's to the chorus of 'Go West', by Pet Shop Boys,so the line repeats four times...)
