Scary 1st Inning

There were a couple scary moments in the first inning of today's 5-1 win over the Marlins in Jupiter, FL. Well, three actually, but I'll get to the third in a later post. Nyjer Morgan led off against the team he started a brawl with late last season and was hit by a pitch by the Marlins pitcher Nolasco. Everyone held their breath, but Morgan calmly removed his batting gear and took his base. Whew, no fireworks there, but it made ... Continue Reading

03-11-11 ST Astros 7 Nats 6

[ Photoset ] Well hello from sunny Viera, Florida, where the Nats took on the Astros at Space Coast Stadium under the (not as bright as MLB) stadium lights last night. Cranking this blog-machine back up, I'm down here for a few days and couldn't have picked a better game to kick off the trip. Last night's had it all from a rocket launch in the 2nd inning to a balk call to a couple home run bombs by Nats Michael ... Continue Reading
