Gratuitous Nats Posting

Nats Hat.jpg

Two nights in a row now I've turned on the teevee just in time to watch the Nats come unglued against the Marlins. Monday night, it was a 2-2 tie blown by the bullpen (as usual) in the 8th. Last night, the Nats were up 5-1 in the middle of the 6th but didn't even have to go to the bullpen to start coming unglued, starter Craig Stammen being unable to get through the Marlins' rotation three times.

I'm starting to get physically sick watching these disasters.

The one consolation? The comforting thought that "Land Shark Stadium" is a really stupid name for a ballpark, especially when the teams that call it home are the Marlins and the Dolphins, two natural enemies of sharks.

Oh, and speaking of the Nats, a note to you Pirates fans out there: Congrats on picking up Lastings Milledge and Joel Hanrahan from us yesterday. I happen to like Milledge and think he'll be a pretty good player once he matures a bit.

As for Hanrahan? Well, good luck with that.....

Pirate fans (all 3 of them) are largely numb to any moves made by this organization. 16 years of failure can do that. So its wait and see for Pittsburgh fans. In the mean time we bask in the shiny glow of the 2009 Lombardi Trophy and the 2009 Stanley Cup. Its not like Pittsburgh is suffering too much. ;-)
