Nationals should take no chances with Stephen Strasburg’s innings limit - The Washington Post

I say skip starts and see how far they can get. Winning the pennant doesnt happen every year

Ozzie Guillen calls Bryce Harper ‘unprofessional’ after pine tar spat - Nationals Journal - The Washington Post

My dad and I always get the 5 game mini plan at the beginning of the season, but this year we also decided to spring for the 3 game mid-season plan.
It's a pretty good deal: 3 tickets (tix have to be for 1 game in July, 1 in August, & 1 in Sept/Oct) plus a voucher for a hat at the team store. We didn't even realize until we got everything in the mail that you actually get one voucher per ticket instead of just one for the whole transaction.
For the past few seasons we've been avoiding philly games because of their annoying fans, but this time around we purposely picked one. Should be a blast!

Yeah I was able to catch the part where they went up by 9, and then blew the comeback, but I had to leave before the Braves went ahead in the 11th. The best thing they can do is just forget about it and come back and play hard the next day. I've been watching this first doubleheader and they're not doing too bad, although they're not stringing together consecutive hits.

Well I'm not a huge baseball fan and I don't want to come off as a bandwagon fan but I definitely like watching the Nats play. Very good young team

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Zimmerman is on FIRE!!!! He just blasted his second HR of the day on a pitch that sort of jammed him; he just flat out muscled the ball over the fence.

I was at the second game yesterday and the atmosphere there was great. This team seriously reminds me of the Caps from a few seasons ago. For any one in the area that either hasn't been to a Nats' game or hasn't been in awhile all I can say is get to a game!

Zimm's been helping my fantasy team for sure.


Drew Storen is back now too, not closing yet but that should be soon.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Nats are starting to make this look pretty easy. No way my Braves or Mets catch'm.

I don't think I could love this team any more. The simultaneous no-look page turn is amazing.

Until they shut Strasburg down before the playoffs.

I can't believe they're still claiming to holding to the innings cap for him.

Yes, you're risking his arm but you do that every time he picks up a ball.

They might never get another chance at a run like this. Philadelphia's having a disaster year and could be back next year. They're the best team in the NL, tied for best with the Yanks in the majors.

If I were manager, I'd limit Strasburg NOW. Make him a Sunday-only starter, or just let him pitch at home...just save his arm for the playoffs that they seem to be a lock for. They'll need him more in October than Tuesdays in August against the Padres and Cubs.

If they stubbornly and stupidly hold to the innings cap and shut him down at year-end, it will be the biggest managerial blunder I can ever remember if they don't win it all.

There's no guarantee they can make this run again. Players get hurt, players move on to other teams who offer more money.

Strasburg might win a World Series in a few years as a Yankee. They'll regret resting his arm for another team.

Bryce Harper plays hard...he might snap his leg running over a catcher and never be the same again. Zimemrman has been injury-prone.

Win now, Nats.

I'm not a Nats fan but I do like this team's talent and are pulling for them as my NL team...at least until my White Sox beat them in the WS.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Rizzo has recently backed off the 160-165 inning limit, just saying that there is a limit.

Keep in mind also, pitching rotations are 3-4 deep during the playoffs
