Commanders are getting thrashed by the Lions. So time to watch this instead.

Mistake on the basepaths.  Drink!

I hit starbucks for a strawberry acai refresher, so am going to add some green tea to it to cut the sweetness.

I’d add some rum as well

Franny talking about park being a pitchers' park and bringing in LF wall.  Bob saying park is thought to be fair.

Ballpark factor is calculated based on runs at the ball park vs away from the ballpark.  Nats Park 2022 ball park factor is 18th in the majors 0.969.  Very slightly below MLB average. Oddly, closest to 1 is #14 is Philly at 0.992. https://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/parkfactor

Tie Game!

Meneses should have gone on the catch.  If the throw went to the cut off, then he stops so the run scores before he's tagged.  It looks like he waited until he saw that it wasn't going to be cut.

for HRs, Nats PArk is 11th, 1.109.  Not a bad place for power.

Franny has it right.  Robles needs to run into the 1st baseman and get an interference.  Let's see how the wrist hangs in there. 

Robles has to steal here.

I guess Meneses can't lead off with a 2 run homer

We had a perfect view of Robles and his weak single that he tried to stretch into a double. As soon as he darted for second, it was clear that he would be out by a mile. Victor's play would have worked against a team of badly coached nine-year olds, but it was silly against minor leaguers. As if the Marlins were asleep.

It was Nook Logan base-running.

They seemed to have run themselves out of at least two innings. Something needs to change in a major way
