Thin air and a crappy opponent. Lets hope to see some more consistency out of the bats.

Don't forget the horrible pitching staff. All the same though, it's nice to see them win consecutive laughers. I just hope it continues once they leave Colorado.

Nats in a slugfest with the Rockies right now.

Terrible first inning for the Nats...but great play by Zim here

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I must've missed that earlier. Just started watching when they came back 9-9. Coming back from being down 7-0, they deserve kudos for that. I hope they've got one more comeback in them though, they are still down 10-9.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Not a fan of REplays?


I'm happy to see Jim Thome off the Phillies. He's my favorite current player but I can't stand Philly, plus he belongs in the AL so he can get at-bats...he can still smash.

He has always hit very well at Camden Yards.

Zimmerman. Play of the year.

And Monkey, being from PA, that's like treasonous isn't it? Don't say that in Philly, they'll come out and stab you.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

So Harper makes the ASG as a replacement for Stanton. Anybody suprised? I might be in the minority amongst fellow Nats fans here, but I think the time off with his family might have served him better. Sure it's exciting that a 19 year old position player that plays for my favorite team is making it (youngest ever position player in history!) but I think this move is more about the hype than the "crazy" stats he's putting up. I'll still be watching but I agree more with Davey Johnson than I do with all my fellow fans that are stoked to see him become an All-Star at 19.

Time off definitely would have been better for the kid, but I'm not going to be pissed. Glad Desmond decided to skip being he has that nagging oblique injury.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I'd rather Strasburg be home resting than Harper. But either way, hopefully this is the first of many for both

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Halfway point and the Nats have the best record in the NL. Amazing. My Mets and Braves will hopefully catch up. Davey Johnson is doing an amazing job and the fact Zim, Werth and Morse havent really done anything or been healthy is crazy. I think the "quiet" difference makers on this team Desmond with the bat, Espinosa with his defense, and Edwin Jackson. Jackson is an innings eater and imo always an underrated pitcher. I thought that was a great move behind the brillant Gio move in the offseason.

Question, do you shut down Stausburg if your in first place come September? I dont see how you can.

Final thought on the first half, Andrew McCutchen is the MVP and best player in baseball right now. Just think of the attention if he played in a major market, but ya hear nothing about the guy. He is the man.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

If it were me I probably would have skipped a couple of Strasburg's starts. Like maybe during interleague play
