That Red Sox Series in DC is Gonna Be Fun
I know they've been running these ads forever. I know that the team has been hyping the Red Sox's arrival for months. I know that tickets for sale on eBay say things like "This series is the most sought after group of Nationals games all year. Folks will fly in from all over the country to see the Red Sox play on Nationals home turf for the first time in history."
Still and all, I have to wonder: Exactly what is Susan O'Malley's title inside the Nationals front office? Will Nationals Park on June 24 be the most insufferable place in the universe? And how will fans know whose turn it is to sing Sweet Caroline when it comes over the PA system. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
Here's another question: when that anti-steroid sheriff from Florida issued a statement about how his suspect fingered players on "the DC Nationals baseball team," was he actively trying to hurt the Nationals' brand awareness, or was he merely confused by the DC cap?
And here's another question: Sure, this is a bang-bang play. Sure, neither Monday night nor last night's games were decided by one run. But still, is there a rule that every single 50-50 call in this series must be decided in the Mets' favor? (That's Josh Bard, by the way. And he sure looked safe to me.)
