Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Well... Pretty sure the Orioles are going to suck again.

The Nats though, I keep having high hopes for. I hope they don't let me down.

Yeah, I just keep saying I hope the Nationals are in the playoff conversation in mid-September. I want to see steady improvement over last season. Should be fun to watch!

I'll third that. I'm looking forward to watching this season, I've been waiting for the day when the Nats are a legit team since they moved back to DC.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Is Harper going to get MLB playtime this year? I keep forgetting about him because he's not part of the MLBPA so he's not included on The Show: 12.

Yeah, he's not going to be on the opening day roster for multiple reasons but I do expect him to get called up sometime this season. I'm throwing a random guess around there but I think it'll be mid-to-late season, although if the Nats are in the playoff hunt I'm not sure how they'd proceed then.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Well the Nats eeked out an opening day win today. Lannan is requesting to be traded because they sent him down to the minors.

Lets see how the O's do tomorrow.

I plan on seeing one of the games Strasburg pitches down here with a couple of friends. We did it last year and had a blast, them slightly more then me since the Braves won.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I got a very blurry picture of me with Dexter Manley at the Nat's opener today, plus they got the win. Good day.

Excellent!

Gio was phenomenal today. Just wish he could have gotten a W for his efforts

@AMD: Nice!

Yeah, I wish Lidge hadn't blown the save, but we got the win regardless, and Gio got his first base hit today (go see the DCSportsBog for excellent coverage on that lol) which was great. It's nice to win the home opener, and I really hope this good feeling about the Nats isn't short lived, because I'd love to see them keep building on this 5-2 record.

Bryce Harper - May 23 call-up.

(My prediction)

Great day!

The camera was obviously intimidated.

Ha! I'm just shocked and happy that between my crappy blackberry and my dad taking the picture you're able to see anything at all.

I also went to the O's game on Wednesday night (two baseball games in two days is WAY too expensive) and I think it finally confirmed that I really just don't care that much about the Orioles anymore. I mean I want them to win but they just continue to stink and I already spend too much of my time rooting for bad teams to bother with them.
Plus, and I know this is blasphemous for any Marylander, I think I actually like Nat's Park a little more, with the exception of getting there.

I have really bad luck asking strangers to take a multi-person picture with the camera on my Iphone. Last time it happened I was at the Caps-Pens game with my friend and I asked a middle aged guy to get a picture of me and my friend and he did, and I didn't bother checking it and when we were on the Metro I started looking through the pics and I discovered the one he took was a blurry pic of the ground. Really disappointing, especially considering our seats were at center ice about 7 rows up.
