Critter captured

Matt Blush, who represents the Lerner Corp. here at HSCS, chased the raccoon through the stands here at HSCS with help of trusty sidekick Chuck. A ridiculous scene. Once the varmant was cornered, Blush then (ill-advisedly?) picked up the raccoon by the scruff of the neck and deposited him (her?) into a cage. Chuck then intended to drive him into the countryside.

Batting practice nearly stopped during all of this. If something more exciting than critter-chase happens today, I'll let you know, but I wouldn't bet on it.

For now, please go about your day. That is all.

Man, I would have thought it would be a welcome change from all the panera. Or maybe it was N00k Logan's day to buy lunch from the non-millionaire's club and he was being creative?

Do you know when the Nationals new "Coon Skin" caps hit the market? Or will Matt Blush have the one and only new hat?

Wondering about this rumor:

" Heard around Florida: Nationals G.M. Jim Bowden is on the hot seat. One rumor suggested that Chuck LaMar, a recent Nats hire, could be a candidate to replace Bowden. But that seems like a stretch, considering LaMar's struggles in Tampa."

That racoon was the lerner's new janitorial engineer. They cost a lot less to employ than actual people b/c they have a very weak union.

Having eaten the food at Space Coast this could be a significant improvement. What countryside? The Walmart Supercenter?

Give the racoon a shot, who knows, he could of had a decent curve ball.

I went through too many bad years in St. Pete with Lamar, please don't put him in charge of the Nats. Lamar was an idea man...he'd have an idea and run with it...for about 3 months and then it was time to rebuild.

But then again, if the Nats want to spend millions and millions on high school athletes who flop within two years (Josh Hamilton, Matt White, Bobby Seay, Paul Wilder, etc.) then, yeah bring in Lamar. Maybe Rolando Arrojo and Wilson Alvarez can be our 1-2 starters. And with all the home-grown talent the D-Rays developed, go for it!

I agree with Patterson that it was risky for the guy (can't remember who) to step on the critter's tail and pick it up. Don't know the status in that part of Fla. but in Virginia raccoons can and do carry rabies, and even without the disease they do not strike me as very docile by nature. Also, if it was just driven a few miles away and released, look for it to show up again.
