Stealing my 1st base in MLB

Posted on July 29, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Tomorrow night, I guarantee I will steal second base in the top of the 4th inning of the Mets at Nats game. No joke! And it's going to be one of the coolest yet embarrassing experiences ever! During the Dream Gala live auction, I was busy chit chatting while my husband actually bid on something. I wasn't even paying attention. Normally, live auction items get so expensive that we end up priced out of the cool stuff. Although, I'm a shark ... Continue Reading

Davey Johnson is no coddler

Posted on July 20, 2011 at 9:06 am

Well, Davey Johnson's postgame interview following last night's 7-6 loss to the Astros was certainly a departure from the norm we've grown accustomed to with previous managers. He didn't mince words when discussing Jordan Zimmerman's not-so-great start and wouldn't even consider the fact Jordan had been hit in the shin with the ball earlier as an excuse. Johnson used phrases such as, "Those things upset me," and "those kinds of mistakes are hard to stomach". I'm torn between liking the ... Continue Reading

Got nimble fingers? Vote Morse for ASG

Vote early and often! Voting is unlimited - you just have to keep entering the 5 digit validation code over and over. So on your lunch break, while on a conference call, you know what you have to do! Let's send Beast Mode to the All Star Game! Unsure who to pick for the AL? I've heard Orioles and Nats fans are teaming up to send both Jones and Morse on the same ballot.... Continue Reading

Celebrating Independence Day

Celebrating Independence Day

Independence from slumps, boos, you-name-it! The Nats won 5-4 on a walk-off wild pitch delivered by the Cubs' Marmol in the bottom of the 10th inning. Most fans sweltering in the stands were not only hoping for a win, but a quick ending as well. Ok, at least I was! Happy 4th of July indeed!
