Game 110: Nats at Brewers

USA Today Sports Images
After notching a series opening win on Friday, the Nationals take on the Brewers in the second game of their weekend set tonight with Dan Haren (5-11. 5.49 ERA) on the mound. Haren's had a rough time overall this season, but has enjoyed some success lately since returning from the disabled list in early July. Over his last four starts he has a 3.13 ERA, including a seven inning, one earned run performance his last time out against the Mets.

Pitching for Milwaukee is rookie right-hander Donovan Hand (0-2, 3.56) who is still searching for his first major league win. The 27-year-old has pitched in 17 games this season, including five starts. This will be his third consecutive start after joining the rotation full-time on July 23.

Hand faced the Nationals earlier this season on July 4 and went five innings with six hits, three walks, and three earned runs. Washington ended up winning that game 8-5.

Davey Johnson has Denard Span back at the top of the order batting leadoff, with Bryce Harper hitting second against Hand. Wilson Ramos gets the start for the second straight day after posting two hits and a run in Friday's win.

Enjoy the game...

Mr. Hand: "Just what in the ... do you think you're doing?"

Jeff Spicoli: "Learning about Cuba and having some food."

baseballswami said...

And while you wait-- John Lannan versus the Braves on three days rest. He has beat the Braves more than any other pitcher- huh?? Whaaaat?

Joe Seamhead said...

Re: Span back at the top of the order:

baseballswami said...

And he plunks Freeman. All the more reason to root for him.

peric said...

Rizzo just got promoted and he wants Span back there but he doesn't belong at lead-off.

David Proctor said...

Read the previous thread's comments about RZim. I think the comments about, well, his comments were pretty harsh. You have to realize that what these guys say to the media isn't always what they mean. For instance, RZim being "satisfied" with winning 1/2 in the playoffs on the road. I doubt he went into that series saying "I'll be happy with 1/2!" But after they lost one, he realized splitting the series on the road and getting home wasn't the worst thing ever. Which was true.

I also didn't find his comments about Harper's shirt wrong. Everybody responds to different things. He was saying he doesn't respond to pep talks, he goes out there and does what he's supposed to do (or tries to) because it's his job. There's nothing wrong with that. I'm the same way to be honest, I hate when we have those silly meetings at work.

That's just my take on it.

David Proctor said...

Since the All-Star Break, Bryce Harper is hitting .340/.377/.600 with a .977 OPS. 2 doubles, a triple, 3 homers.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Go Johnny L!

slidell2 said...

Some entrepreneur needs to step to the plate and make up a mess of those Harper t-shirts.

baseballswami said...

I get Ryan's comments, I really do. Not every team is the type to do Maddon's dress up days. But I find our guys to be particularly too cool for school. Remember how Pence fired up the Giants last year?. Just saying that this ulta- sophisticated routine isn't exactly resulting in a professional result. It's a game. Maybe there should be more energy and testosterone than in a law firm.

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

Some entrepreneur needs to step to the plate and make up a mess of those Harper t-shirts.

Might as well ... they've made a mess of everything else.

Badaboom.

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

Maybe there should be more energy and testosterone than in a law firm.

You apparently have not spent much time around some law firms I could name, Swami. Just saying.

David Proctor said...

I think every locker-room has a mix of guys. There are guys like Ryan and guys like Harper. They help balance each other out. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Justin Maxwell already making his impact with his new team. GW pinch-hit HR in the 12th inning.

Royals needed a pinch-hitter and a RH outfielder and got JMax and the Nats needed a pinch-hitter and RH outfielder and got Scott Hairston.

We all know JMax and Hairston can't hit RHPs well but JMax is killing LHPs this year:

.311/.367/.489/.856

and

Hairston

.174/.233/.446/.679

Why did you make that choice Mike?

baseballswami said...

Sofa-- maybe accountants?? By the way-- Tommy Milone got sent down to the minors. Ouch.

David Proctor said...

Swami, how good is the Gio trade looking now?

Get Your Re(n)d On said...

JMax. Been there, done that, bought the T shirt. And it wasn't one of Harper's.

baseballswami said...

David-- so good.

peric said...

I look at it as a choice between JMax and Tyler Moore or switch hitter Zach Walters. Why would you choose JMax?

sjm308 said...

David - I mentioned that in about the 360th post from yesterday.
We have Gio and he is locked up for several more years. The genius Billy Bean has a 2nd string catcher, a AAA starter and the other pitcher is now with the Astro's and struggling as well. Oh yeah, we got the other stud prospect pitcher back as well.
Rizzo needs to step his game up!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

JMax gives you + defense and outstanding LHP splits which neither of the others have as an outfielder.

sjm308 said...

Peric - I agree with you but if your choice was Justin or Hairston which would you chose? I also think Moore should be back soon.

Secret wasian man said...

John Lannan just gave up the lead

David Proctor said...

I don't have a good feeling about tonight. The Brewers can hit home runs and Haren loves to give them up. I thought his last start was very lucky. A lot of balls that were JUST foul and had distance.

c715e5d6-9d22-11e1-a89a-000f20980440 said...

Don't assume accountants lack testosterone (or estrogen) or energy. One visit to an "opinion consistency meeting" would definitely change your mind on that (but, I will say, no t-shirts are distributed).

Now, back to baseball.

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

Gwai fung, peeps.

David Proctor said...

Amanda Comak ‏@acomak 7s
Something of an update on Ross Detwiler: While it is still possible he pitches in games this season, Davey seems to think it is unlikely.

Adam Kilgore ‏@AdamKilgoreWP 3s
Davey says it'll be a while before Ross Detwiler comes back, possibly very late in September. He needs a full throwing program after rest.


Well this sucks.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Lannan pulled in the 5th.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

David, that sounds bad but it seems Ross needs rest and you hope he can make a full recovery.

baseballswami said...

Lannan on three days rest versus the Braves lineup. Interesting managerial decision. That all the Phillies can muster up these days?

David Proctor said...

The Phillies have won 1 out of their last 12. Talk about freefalling...

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

The Phillies have Ruf playing LF. He takes a poor route to a soft fly and it becomes a leadoff single. After a Sac Bunt and stealing 3rd and an error by the Phillies 3rd baseman the wheels come off the bus.

Braves 4 - Phillies 3

baseballswami said...

Question about pitching coverage-- with Det unlikely to pitch in August, does Taylor Jordan have enough innings left to at least make it until Sept call up time?

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

The Phillies look like a split-squad team playing like they have to catch a flight.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

baseballswami, I think TJord is done after 3 to 4 more starts so I don't believe he will make it to September 1st.

Have to think Ohlie takes his spot until callups.

baseballswami said...

Ghost - agreed. But look at the team they are fielding and then look at our roster. There is no way we should be closer to them than the Braves. No way.

David Proctor said...

The Braves got hot at the right time. We were still very much in the NL East race coming out of the ASB. But we lost 6 in a row and the Braves have just been on fire so that pretty much put an end to that. 6.5 back of the Wildcard.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

baseballswami, yah, I agree and how unbelievable that Amaro couldn't trade any of his aging Vets for some young prospects.

baseballswami said...

My Philly relatives are just furious that Amaro is not working on rebuilding right now.

David Proctor said...

I somewhat understand not trading someone like Chase Utley. But why in the world wouldn't you get rid of a guy like Michael Young, who isn't even that good to begin with?

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

David, the Nats were in it on July 7th at only 4 games back with the easy part of their schedule to finish out before the All Star break.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

David, rumor was that Young wouldn't agree to a trade as he had full no-trade protection.

David Proctor said...

Giving Michael Young full no-trade protection to begin with was an awful decision.

Way to go Ian Desmond sticking up for Bryce Harper! Even more respect for Desi!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Julie Alexandria says in the pre-game that almost all the players were wearing Bryce's t-shirts for this game.

Knoxville Nat said...

My Phillie fan daughter and S - I -L are steamed that Amaro didn't trade Young, Ruiz and Cliff. I reminded them that it takes two to tango and maybe Amaro's asking price was too high. In any event they would like to see the Phil's go younger even if it takes a few years. Papelbon now with 9 blown saves on the year to boot. Ugh!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Tim, I hate the Phillies and agree with your daughter & her H. I think they still have a chance to move Cliff Lee on a waiver claim so it's not over yet.

baseballswami said...

Spent a week up there recently- very surprised at how ready the fans are now to move players and get younger. They get it now. Radio call in shows up there are quite entertaining.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

baseballswami, they should be smelling last place next year unless they get lucky in Free Agency. Their farm system has a lot of near misses and nobody knows if Hamels can come back strong or what the status of Halladay will be. 1 more year of wear on JRoll, Utley, and Ryan Howard and Michael Young and Chooch is 5/8ths of your starting position players on major age regression.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Extras in Phooledephia.

peric said...

He's not right handed but I'd like to see Corey Brown and his XBH bat than JMax which seems to be keeping up with Walters given he has 100 less at bats. Seems like he might be a better choice than Bernadina and no let it not be said: Denard Span. Plus they got a Perez and a Kobernus both right-handed, hitting well and capable of playing all three outfield positions ...

Kind of sad when the Syracuse offense looks that much better than the Nat's offense ... can't recall it ever being like that since they became the Nats.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Sure Peric, we will see all those guys the 1st week of September except for maybe Walters.

David Proctor said...

I'd give Brown a shot. Not because I think he'll be particularly good, but because he can't possible be worse. And although he struggled at times last year, I thought he did much better toward the end of his stint. I know he had a walk-off.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

David, I can't imagine he'd be worse than Tracy and Brown is decent with the glove, speed, and arm. We saw some glimpses last year, just not consistency which is the definition of the 2013 bench.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Somebody is actually promoting Syracuse as a place where the Nats can get some help?

Except for Espinosa and Moore, any help from the minor league system is going to come from AA or below.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Span is now batting .202 (17-84) leading off games this year.

SCNatsFan said...

Gulp

David Proctor said...

Ominous start to the game...

SCNatsFan said...

And I agree, we saw enough of JMax to last a long time

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

I don't think I would want JMax back either but there were better players available than Scott Hairston. He's now the RH version of Chad Tracy and Rizzo is on the hook for a big contract for 2014.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Time for LaRoche to step up.

Faraz Shaikh said...

it is @2.5 MM, I don't think it is much.

baseballswami said...

Free Tyjer Moore. Let ALR be the lefty bat off the bench. The man is physically emancipated and worn down. At this point, what do the Nats stand to lose? They told the kid to regain his stroke and he would be back. Well?

Joe Seamhead said...

Span is hitting .202 @ leadoff, but he has also gotten 10 hits in his last 19 at bats.

Faraz Shaikh said...

ALR steps up big time, runner advances in scoring position. Oh yeah!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Faraz Shaikh said...
it is @2.5 MM, I don't think it is much.


Do you realize that's more collectively than the other 3 IF/OF players on the bench (Tracy, Bernadina, Lombo). That's a ton for a glorified pinch-hitting specialist like Tracy.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

33 walks for Desi. Number going up.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Faraz Shaikh said...
ALR steps up big time, runner advances in scoring position. Oh yeah!


Luckily Werth was in motion or its a 4-6-3.

August 03, 2013 7:37 PM


What's your point? He got those hits in the 7 hole. Davey moves him back to leadoff. Not sure I disagree as well as he was doing in the 7 hole.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Werth in by an eyelash! WOW!

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Rendon and Werth hood combo

Faraz Shaikh said...

come on GoSM, I am sure ALR would have beaten Segura's throw by a mile.

WOW was he really safe there? anyways, nats score on rendon's sac fly which is credit to werth actually not rendon as far as I am concerned.

David Proctor said...

What a FANTASTIC slide by Werth.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Thank you Jayson. Baseball at its best!

Joe Seamhead said...

Not bad for a guy who it was said by some that his legs are too old.

David Proctor said...

Ramos got that. FP was totally right when he said if the roof is closed, that's a home run. No doubt.

SCNatsFan said...

Great slide by Werth

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

David, you're not kidding. That ball died out there. That hurts. 2 run jack off the board.

BigCat said...

How wedding go Manassas?

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Haren doing a lot of nibbling and not seeing his split finger. He threw Davis all cutter and 4-seamers.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Haren is not throwing strikes and certainly not quality strikes.

David Proctor said...

That was a good job controlling the running game by Haren during that AB.

Joe Seamhead said...

Ghost, my point is that Span has hit better for the past month. BTW, he led off Weds, in Detroit, went 2-3 with a walk. So, no, not all of those 10 hits were from him hitting in the 7 hole. Since July 1st Span has gone 30-101 with 9 BB's.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

This Phoolie game is frustrating. After an intentional walk the pitcher throws 4 straight balls to Paul Janish who was taking his 1st AB of the season. Bases loaded 1 out.

BigCat said...

Haren not throwing many strikes at all. 2/3 of his strikes end up in the seats......so....9 more outs and then immediately go to pen

David Proctor said...

Watching Haren run the bases is...something.

David Proctor said...

Harper got a pitch there and he knew it.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Joe, I'm just saying I like him in the 7 hole where he looks more comfortable. He got his season back on track and 2 not-so-good ABs so far.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Game of inches......

David Proctor said...

Wow, Zim JUUUUUUUUUUST missed it.

SCNatsFan said...

Close the freaking roof already

NatsJack in Florida said...

Ghost, I'm with you on Span. He's been so much more productive in the 7 hole.

SCNatsFan said...

Why must Haren go to 3-2 on every hitter?

David Proctor said...

That was a good inning for Haren.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Braves win 5-4. Seems like a broken record....

David Proctor said...

My god, Werth!

NatsJack in Florida said...

Who here doesn't love Jayson Werth?

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

When you aren't going well, Hand misses his spot and LaRoche hits a can of corn to left. 1 pitch, 1 out.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

NatsJack, we know a few don't but they all went hiding.

Joe Seamhead said...

Jack and Ghost, I agree that Span has been better in the 7 hole than he was at lead off in the last two weeks of May and all of June.But he was brought here to be a lead off batter and I believe that the Nats have not given up on that idea. I said a few weeks ago that if it was my choice Werth would lead off against LH and Span would lead off against RH pitching, for now. I also think that Anthony Rendon's slump is playing a part in this line up change right now.

NatsJack in Florida said...

And the team leader,Ian Desmond,grounds into his patented double play.

David Proctor said...

Carlos Gomez is a very very good player, but he could learn some plate discipline.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Joe, I agree that Span SHOULD be the lead off hitter, but right now,the team needs to stick with what works.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Joe, you can just see it in leadoff. Back to swinging light and taking fastballs on the plate. It's like 2 different guys. Do you force something that is now not comfortable?

It seems that has been a problem for Davey all season not getting this lineup set and the right matchups.

David Proctor said...

Haren suddenly can't throw strikes anymore.

David Proctor said...

Nevermind

NatsJack in Florida said...

David, Don't you just love it?

MrsB loves the Nats said...

About time one of them went over!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Ramos! Take that haters!

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Buffalo

Steady Eddie said...

Rendon continuing to hit the ball on the nose and can't find a hole.

Tatanka, on the other hand, finds a field of holes over the fence!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Hit the pitcher after the HR? WTF?

David Proctor said...

Ramos has a tendency to pimp his home runs. I was waiting for somebody to get hit because of it.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

What kind of pitch was that?

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Big Cat the wedding went great. Highlight when the Dj played Take me out to tge ball game about 2/3 the way through the reception.

Steady Eddie said...

Hope that ball didn't hit Haren's pitching shoulder...

NatsLady said...

Buffalo needs to lose a few pounds, but love the power!

David Proctor said...

Well it didn't look like he pimped it that time, much. But he definitely does do it. Hmm.

Secret wasian man said...

time for Span and Laroche to bat 7-8. Ramos bats 4th. As much as Werth gets on base having ALR batting next is criminal.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Ramos didn't pimp that one. On another note, Brandon Miller hit his first high A home run at Potomac tonight.

Joe Seamhead said...

Ramos!!
Jack? What works? I don't think the record of the team with Span hitting 7th is any better than when he was leading off. Honestly, nothing has been working, one way, or the other.

Secret wasian man said...

Ramos did pimp it. Thats bush league. especially since it barely got over.

Knoxville Nat said...

I have to agree with Seamhead. I think the idea of Werth at lead off vs the lefties and Span against the RH's makes a lot of sense. Maybe too much sense for this season.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Can we say once again "By Ryan Zimmerman". Harper saves the day.

David Proctor said...

Yuniesky Betancourt trying to run on Harper.

Joe Seamhead said...

Great rope from Harper there!

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Someone told ARen to keep the ball down... Whata throw by Harper!

BigCat said...

Harp my boy The Gunslinger

Secret wasian man said...

Bryce never stands and looks. if that's off the top of the wall Bryce is at 3rd. Wilson could be out at second.

Knoxville Nat said...

Secret,

I didn't see any pimping going on there.

Secret wasian man said...

Love that kid.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Note to Ryan Zimmerman. That is what a team leader does.

Secret wasian man said...

not bad on the pimpimg. But I like a guy who runs hard no matter what.

paul brandt said...

SWM, agree Span should be 7 but ALR needs to sit, dude just plain stinks at the plate...heard Charlie & Dave say he is 1 for his last 28 if I heard it correctly, that's not bad, its F-n horrible!!!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Secret wasian man said...
Ramos did pimp it. Thats bush league. especially since it barely got over.


What are you talking about? Did you see a different replay then the rest of us or are you making it up as you go along? He always salutes Dios at homeplate after a HR.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Harper's arm remind me of Big Cat's arm as a 20 year old.

Secret wasian man said...

agree paul he is wasting Werths efforts. ian not great either.

David Proctor said...

Ramos normally does pimp. He stands and watches. But I don't think he did that time for some reason. Maybe because of the one earlier that he thought he got but didn't.

BigCat said...

Pitiful Zim

David Proctor said...

Well what about that? Opposite field ADAM BOMB!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Paul Brandt, that HR was for you!

BigCat said...

Take that Ghost!!

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Good for Adam! Man, I know he needed that...

Knoxville Nat said...

Boy did he need that!

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Yep, that was Bryce's stick. Funny.

David Proctor said...

Harper's bat has magic power!

NatsJack in Florida said...

Whoaa!Where did that come from?

Secret wasian man said...

did Ramos run hard after he hit the ball? I don't think so. that's all. SO PAUL I GUESS THATS WHY WE ARE JUST FANS HAHAHAHA LAROCHE

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Remember what you did ALR to repeat what your doing.

Ifvit was Harper's bat remember.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Very few run hard. Most run aboit the same speed.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

BigCat said...
Take that Ghost!


Take what? I haven't said much about his hitting other than facts. Just letting it play out but Charlie and Dave have been discussing it.

I'm a homer. Thrilled. He was due!

NatsJack in Florida said...

Ghost. Ignore SWM. He makes stuff up and lives in his own world.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Oh lord... Please don't let J Werth be hurt...

David Proctor said...

I hope Werth is okay and this is just precautionary.

Secret wasian man said...

sausage race is great. get rid of TAFT

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Oh boy. Werth. Hottest batter in baseball. Say it ain't so.

NatsLady said...

Please don't let Werth be hurt!!!!!

paul brandt said...

Ghost, thanks, how funny, why does it always seem to happen that way??...off to buy a powerball ticket.

Secret wasian man said...

Living in my own world is better than living in your single wide trailer with you Nats jack.

David Proctor said...

That Werth stayed into the game to bat is probably a good sign. He can take forever to get to balls in the outfield as long as he can keep hitting.

I'm hoping.

paul brandt said...

what happened to Werth? missed it.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

We need to have yhe prez's race for real and cutthe theater.

Joe Seamhead said...

I was just going to beat up on ALR! So happy for him! Anyway, In the last 28 games Ian Desmond has 5, count 'em, 5 RBI's and ALR has 10 RBI's. Those totals are glaring as to being a huge part of what's wrong with this offense.(Give Adam 1 more now!).

David Proctor said...

So do you put Haren back out there for the 7th?

paul brandt said...

DP, yes re. Haren.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Did you see Rendon',s catch? Werth held up on that fly, slightest of a limp.

Believe this is all precautionary.

SCNatsFan said...

Rendon has become a ground out machine

Knoxville Nat said...

J Zimmermann with 6 shutout innings last night, Haren with 6 so far tonight, man I am loving some starting pitching right now. Lets finish this one off tonight and get Taylor Jordan to throw a strong start of his own tomorrow.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Has anyone ever been to Winter Park, Florida? Especially, within 2 blocks of Park Avenue?

Joe Seamhead said...

Hey, Manassas Nats Fan! Congrats on your daughter's wedding today!

NatsJack in Florida said...

Haren getting through the 7th is HUGE!

paul brandt said...

ok, I like Ramos but is it that hard to run out a ground ball like Harper used to do and even Ohlendorf did last week?

Knoxville Nat said...

NJ,

I admit I have not been to Winter Park, FL. Should I put it on my bucket list or just add it to a future spring training itinerary?

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

I do NOT want Ramos pulling a groin muscle, especially his own. Routine grounder, not worth having Zuki finish the season.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

I'm sour on Haren...but I have to give him props for his performances lately....

I wish this was the Haren that had been around since the beginning of the year...

He is a humble guy, always knows what to say, doesn't blame others for when he messes up....

If this is the guy that we should expect - I wonder will be he a Nat again next year...

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

Winter Park, no. I have family in Melbourne. What do you need to know?

Joe Seamhead said...

94 pitches for Haren to this point, and he's still looking good!

Knoxville Nat said...

Paul,

Given Ramos history with hamstring issues this year I'm okay if he doesn't run out routine ground balls the rest of the season.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

What a pitch to Cargo on the K... Totally had him looking...

David Proctor said...

Ryan just mouthed "f**k me" after nearly throwing that ball away.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Hold your breath. LaRoche saves another E-5.

MrsB loves the Nats said...

Come on Ryan...

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

Thanks Joe.

Played mostly country music, but playrd Hailed to redskins and a few other walk up Nats tune.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Another ball by Ryan Zimmerman that he has to get. His UZR will take a beating tonight again.

paul brandt said...

sofa, i knew i would hear the groin muscle excuse and its valid but too many of our guys not hustling down the line, just don't like it.

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Congrats MNF!

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

That was a hit, eh?

Okayyyyy...

MrsB loves the Nats said...

What a night by D Haren.... *mighty claps*

Ghost Of Steve M. said...

Haren picks himself up. Way to finish that off Dan! Great outing. Stay consistent my friend!

Joe Seamhead said...

2 poor plays by Zimm in this inning.No damage, though.Great job by Dan Haren.

David Proctor said...

It was a tough play. A play Ryan should make, but a tough play still. I understand giving it a hit.

NatsJack in Florida said...

Knoxville Nat. Park Ave. is we'll worth a visit. Old money Florida with great restaurants and bars.

Sec. 3, My Sofa said...

I feel you, pb, but this is one I would give him. Like Livo not busting down the line on every ground ball...it's really not his job.

Manassas Nats' Fan said...

In the 5 games since coming off the DL 1 mediocre start, 2 very good starts, and 2 excellent starts.

BigCat said...

You notice how they

NatsFanSinceStart said...

I'll tell ya -- inept or corrupt official scorers have saved Iron glove Zim 5 errors at least this year -- probably more.

Uh Davey, leave Haren in. He's going great

SCNatsFan said...
