Bang! Zoom!

Nats 7, Phils 6



43 wins, pendejos! Eat our dust, 1962 Mets!

And shove it up your tailpipe, Wendelstedt! (video link) It sounds like Tubby Wendelstedt will make a worthy inductee to the Paul Schrieber Umpire Hall of Shame. Looking forward to catching at least part of the MASN replay tonight.

(UPDATED: I captured and put up the MASN video. I think I love Don Sutton.)

On to 63!

(And by the way, I don't care if he is in the mix for the batting title, why are we signing a 34 year old DH with a glove to a 2 year deal? Doesn't make a lot of sense. The Nats farm system has made nice strides in the pitching department, but there's literally almost no one down there, save one or two guys, who can hit. Dmitri is "found money," and you've got to turn him into long-term assets if you can.)

Good stick, Good clubhouse presence, fan favorite, at worst offers excellent bench help at the end of contract and great AL trade bait anytime for a young arm if Bowden can work a deal.

I like him too, but at 2 years for $10 mil total, it's not worth it. He'll be 36, almost 37 at the end of the contract. If it was lower - say $4 million total - most wouldn't mind.

(Now if the owners plan to start spending like drunken sailors, then all bets are off.)

Thanks for putting the video on YouTube, it is a real service to us all.

I wonder if Angelo$ will get it taken off.

My pleasure. I hope it stays up there for at least a few days so people can see it while we're still talking about it. (That's why I labelled it with initials, rather than names - makes it harder for the copyright police to find.)
