Morning Look: Shoeless Saul

Presenting our third in a series of "Nationals players lying prone following an unsuccessful defensive play." Part I and Part II still available for your viewing pleasure. The complete collection should be ready sometime in September.

This photo, by The Post's Toni Sandys, features Saul Rivera, whose leather-losing collision with third baseman Pete Orr in the eighth inning evidently had something to do with the team's latest loss and had everyone talking.

Orr: "Uh, what's that? Right there. That black thing. Look, see?"

Flores: "I got it, I got it." [Throws shoe into center field.]

Shoeless Saul: "If you build it...."

Roger Clemens: "Extraneous pieces of ball-playing equipment, when found on the field, should always be tossed in the general direction of Mike Piazza."

Nikita Khrushchev: "We will bury you!"

Kevin Plank: "New ad campaign: We Must Tighten Our Laces!"

After the jump, a happier sight, provided by the AP's Nick Wass. Hint: The Lerners sent out a search crew looking for the pot o' gold.

If major league baseball was played in only 7 innings like single A clubs, the Washington Nationals would have record over .500. It was painful to see the 8th inning collapse.

Vlad's broken bat single was freaky to observe live. That piece of wood shot out of his gloveless hands toward Bergie in 0.448 seconds.

What? Are you implying that the Lerners are money-grubbing? I'm shocked! Shocked that anyone would think that.

While the short-lived double rainbow was cool, the frightening brightness of the primary rainbow was damn spectacular. I mean, that bastige was five- to six- colors deep! (First rainbow-related post on the Bog?)
See you at Nats Park tonight--GO, NATS!
