And after the stretch ...
I was in the clubhouse conversing with baseball players (again, have to remind myself that that's my job) while about four innings passed. The scoreboard (and again, I have no idea why they're running the scoreboard) has the Nationals 3, Nationals 0 after 7 (home team winning). Not sure how those runs scored.
Jerome Williams was happy with how he threw the ball. Tim Redding: More mixed. Hung that curveball, as I mentioned, to Church, who jumped on it. Four-pitch walk to stat the game was no good.
Mike Hinckley now taking the hill for the home team. Remember him? He was the organization's top prospect in 2005, but arm problems and slow development has hindered him. He's still on the 40-man roster, and the organization is trying to put him back together. I'm going to write something about him for the actual, ink-and-paper newspaper at some point (just $.35).
Speaking of which, I hope you Journal readers also read the actual, ink-and-paper newspaper (just $.35). At least online. I'm going to do some stuff on the Journal during Grapefruit League season that won't be available in the paper, but remember: This baby is just here to supplement the actual coverage. That's where I'm putting real energy. And that's where you'll learn the most about the team. (It's just $.35.)
OK, I'm down off my soapbox. Hinckley just tossed a 1-2-3 frame. Off to the bottom of the eighth.
