Alika Williams and Liover Peguero. We have to be careful about avoiding nicknames and making sure we spell names properly, not phonetically.

what's the return if one bets $100,000 that Corbin gives up 3 runs in the first?

Reading the 'Nationals News' item on school days, was I the only one who did a double-take at Corbin's line that 'learning about the history of the United States would be something cool for me' ? Erm...OK... :shock:  :roll:

Amazing how a simple word like "more" could completely change the context.

saw in FG that Max has the most wins in baseball since 2014. Most losses? Corbin.

Pirates announcers praising Night Train Lane on that catch, mentions that Thomas leads in OF assists. Then they shift to Young's and Alu's catches.

Does Thomas look ginger after that catch?

Just can't have a shut-down inning after scoring, eh?

Vintage Corbin

It is really Ruiz as Reynolds’s stolen base erased what surely would have been a double play. The more I see Ruiz behind the plate the more I’m convinced that he should be the DH. Also two subsequent stolen bases in that inning.

At CCSP. Didn't bother programming the Nats on tv until I asked. Literally over 100 tvs and none showing dc baseball. Have Bos NYY rain delay and the Os Masn.

Otoh, I am the 1st to ask

Team has become irrelevant in 4 years.  Amazing attendance is as high as it is.
