Three Up, Three Down

The Fire Acta Movement: Blogs, message boards call for manager's head in wake 13-36 start. Is it a bad sign that Clint Hurdle called and invited Acta on long fishing trip this week?

Wieters: "Switch-hitting Jesus" makes highly anticipated debut behind the plate for O's, goes 2 for 8 in first series while batting with loaf of bread.

Pitching milestones: Phillies' Moyer notches 250th career win vs. Nats. Giants' R. Johnson goes for 300 here Wednesday night. Then? The wait begins for Strasburg's 1st.

Strasburg: SDSU ace, presumed top pick in June 9 draft, loses in NCAA opener, drops to 13-1. Later claims he felt he needed to get a taste of losing before he joined the Nationals.

E. Dukes: Nats OF owes nearly $40,000 in legal fees to wife's attorneys. Outraged Great Falls Little League organizers claim it was all their fault, vow to collect donations on his behalf.

TV ratings: Nats drawing 12,000 viewers on MASN, last in majors but up from 2008. Only possible explanation: Folks watch the Nats for the same reason they watch NASCAR.
