Gratuitous Nats Posting - "Feel The Anger FLOWING In You!" Division


I must be becoming a real fan or something, because I was genuinely infuriated by last night's sweeper of the Nats by the Mets. I mean yelling at the teevee, beating the children and kicking the cat infuriated.

Here's the recap. Typical Nats outing - solid through 5 or 6 innings. In fact, up to that point, it was a pretty durn good duel between Zimmerman and Santana.

But then.....ka-BLOOOIE!!

Let me just say a few things about Murphy's "home run" in the 6th.

First, instant replay review is more pernicious to baseball than either artificial turf or the DH rule and I seriously hope the league gets rid of it instanter.

Second, I was mostly joking in my last post about the umpire bias. Not any more.

Third, if the ball did bounce off the Subway sign on the front of the upper deck, how the heck did it then leap from the front of the warning track and hit the Modell's sign below it? As Seinfeld might say, "That was one magic loogie."


At this rate we're going to be looking back on last year's 102 losses as the Good Old Days. And I am going to have gone completely over to the Dark Side.

UPDATE: In response to several alarumed queries to the Tasty Bits (TM) Mail Sack, no, of course I didn't really kick the cat.
