Walk-off hit by pitch

Posted on August 21, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Wait, you can embed MLB.com videos now?!?! Woot! Nationals win the Phillies series at home on a walk-off hit by pitch, even if it felt like, "no place but home". Well, poop, I found the embed code, but apparently the answer is no, you can't. 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

If the Nats beat the Phillies and nobody is there to see it

Posted on April 13, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Did it really happen? YES! [After reading this, check out the series preview Q&A I did with Enrico from The 700 Level] I totally did not want to go to the game last night and was silently praying for a rainout and the game to be called before hauling myself downtown. See, two days after my near-death experience in the Jeep, I wiped out on the scooter Monday night (again, thanks to a car cutting me off). With two severely bruised ... Continue Reading
