Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - "See! You! Later!" Division

Nats Hat.jpg

How about that? The Nats took another one off the Brewers last night by a score of 8-3, including an Adam Dunn homer that still hasn't hit the ground. (The eldest Llama-ette and I spent the evening arguing about whether the Nats should just keep playing Dunn at 1st and get rid of Nick Johnson altogether. That's the kind of argument I don't mind having with the gel.) The real star of the game, however, was our new centerfielder Nyger Morgan. Why did the Bucs let him go, I wonder?

So, as I say, how about that? That's four wins in a row and six out of the last eight games. Is it now legitimate to believe that the team finally has had the fire lit under its collective backsides and might finish out the season in some style? The gremlin bogie remains stuck at 53 and the magic number to kill it is now 9.

Yup, baseball is almost fun again.

I saw Nyger Morgan play when he was with the Indianapolis Indians (AAA farm club for the Pirates). I thought he looked pretty good, and it sounds like he's developing in a good pro.

Back when I was a wee lad, the Indians were the farm club for the Reds. Then we had the Expos for a while, then the Reds again. I got to see Austin Kearns, Adam Dunn, and a couple of the Boones play here. It was great fun. Now, of course, we have the Pirates, and I have no good reason to follow the Indians. Grrr.

If the NATS go into another tailspin now...I'm blaming you.

Im happy to quietly enjoy this little bit of mid-summer quality entertainment.
