Nationals Home Opener

This should be interesting.

I’m guessing that there will be at least as many Phillies fans at Nationals Park today as there will be Nationals fans…probably more.  I know the game isn’t a sellout, so the lines at the concession stands shouldn’t be too long. The weather forecast for today calls for mostly cloudy skies, high temperatures in the low 50’s, and a chance of rain by sunset.

The pitching matchup looks relatively even, as long as you don’t actually look at the names of the pitchers. The numbers on the right are for the Phillies’ starter; the numbers on the left are for the Nationals’ starter:

0-1 Record  0-1
7.20 ERA  7.50
2 K  4
2 BB  2
2.00 WHIP  1.50

Jamie Moyer will be pitching for the Phillies, while Daniel Cabrera will start for the Nationals. I guarantee, these numbers will look completely different by the time the game ends.

It would be nice if the Nats could stop leaving so [BLEEP] many runners on base and actually drive some runners home. That would be really great for a change!

Yes indeed, my cynicism is definitely in mid-season form!

Ah, what the hell……

    Well, the Nationals did score enough runs to win the game. Unfortunately they also allowed enough runs to lose the game. GRRRR!!! But I did manage to have a good time, in spite of the game’s final score. And I haven’t thrown myself off a bridge yet, so that’s a good thing. 🙂
