Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Nats are on the skids while the O's are on a streak. Unfortunate that the Yankees have taken first though. Still happy that the Sox are in the cellar, though I could see that changing once they get more players off the DL.

The good thing though is that the entire NL East has been blowing hard during interleague play so the Nats are still in the lead.

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson tells Joe Maddon 'read the rulebook' - ESPN

Johnson, on whether he has any intention of meeting with Maddon: "No, I don't know him that well, but I thought he was a weird wuss anyway, so no. I understand where he's coming from. His job as a manager is to protect the players, striking out at whoever is causing your players any grievance."

Think people are a little intimadated by Maddon, obviously not Johnson breaking out the ole "W" word.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Seems Maddon was particularly pissed that Davey Johnson violated "unwritten" rules by using insider knowledge. And Nats pitchers will probably be extra scrutinized for a while.

But I like how the Nats are kind of making enemies. This plus Cole Hamels incident from earlier. We're pissing people off instead of being a comical afterthought. That's a good sign

True. I'd rather be where we're at now than the years of being a continuous afterthought. And I don't really think pine tar is as widespread in baseball as Maddon would have us believe. I think he's just pissed Peralta got caught.

This for sure. If pine tar on pitchers' gloves was more rampant, they would have been cracked down on long ago.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Youk getting traded is a dagger. I love that guy for a long time.

I am glad I am not a kid in this day and age of sports. It is hard to have a home town hero to grow up with.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I'm a White Sox fan and Youk is my LEAST favorite player in MLB. I can't stand to look at his batting stance.





Feels as bad as when the ChiSox got Manny!

But on the bright side, we're in first place and doing this to try to clinch that postseason spot. At least we're not sellers this year.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

the nats are killing it out in the rockies, i hope they take their bats with them when they leave. the past few nights have been a treat to watch, tyler moore looks like he could be a real hitter in the bigs.
