The starting pitchers have a 6.04 FIP and a 2.74 FIP. Guess who is who.

Bob really wants a win this weekend and seeing Tanner Rainey pitch.
Franny notes CJ has a shot at the Nats steal record. Turner has the most since 2005, with 46 in 2017. CJ has 44. Also Lane could score 100 runs. has 98.

If Williams goes 5 innings, it'll be his most since 2018.

CJ recognizes that Lane likes to lead off, so he figured a 1 pitch groundout might fool Lane into thinking he's leading off..

If Ruiz catches all 3 games, does Acuna top 75 steals this year?

Williams showing some time off didn't disrupt his momentum

Something for the Stretch...

And now, the end is near
And so we face the final innings
Our friends, we'll say it clear
We'll state our case, of which we're certain
We've been to many parks
We traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
We did it Our Way...

Regrets, we've had a lot
But then again, too many to mention
We couldn't do what we had to do
But saw it through without exemption
We often had no clue
Each tagged out runner along the baselines
And more, much more than this
We did it Our Way...

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When we bit off more than we could chew
We played The Fish, there was no doubt
They ate us up and spat us out
We faced it all, and we stood tall
And did it Our Way...

We've even been no-hit
We've had our fill, our share of losing
And now, as tears subside
We find it all so bemusing
To think we did all that
And may we say, not in a shy way
Oh yes, that's really us
We did it Our Way...

For what is a team, what have they got?
If not more runs, then they have naught
To get the outs they truly need
And not drop catches in the field
The record shows we swung and missed the blows
And did it OUR WAY!...
