Kissing your sister
Final: Nationals 4, Nationals 4. (Quotable on the whiteboard the other day was something like, "If a tie is like kissing your sister, then a loss is like kissing your grandmother with her teeth out." Can't remember who it was attributed to.)
Apparently no desire to go to extra innings in this intrasquad game. Manager Manny Acta said he was pleased with how everything went. "They looked sharper than usual," he said a few minutes ago. The homers mentioned earlier by Ronnie/Rafael Belliard and Michael Restovich were the only ones on the morning/afternoon. Acta said he told Matt Chico, who gave up Zimmerman's RBI double, not to worry, because Zimmerman "hit everyone last year and is going to hit everyone this year."
Cristian Guzman even got a hit in his first at-bat. "I feel good," he said. He struck out his next time up. His average now is .500, which is 281 points higher than his average from 2005. So there's that.
Another one of these babies tomorrow. But I just spent an hour standing in the clubhouse alongside the Millionaires' Club lunch buffet, which today was sponsored by Chad Cordero. Chinese food. Man, it smelled good. Looks like a quick run to Asian Too is in order.
I've got much work to do this afternoon, but I need to get to a post on outgoing P.A. announcer Jim Clarke. I'll try to do that before the day is out.
