Have I mentioned this could be a long year?

Emiliano Fruto gave up back-to-back homers in the fifth to Yunel Escobar and Ryan Langerhans. We're 2 hours, 20 minutes into this one, and we're just going to the seventh inning now. The franchise is high on Fruto, but at 22, he's had some shaky outings and is currently a favorite to be sent to Columbus to start the year.

(Ooh, keep in mind: First cuts on Thursday.)

Schneider: He's obviously ecstatic over this whole having-a-kid thing. But he's also been working with Mitchell Page, the hitting coach, on some changes to his stance that are helping him. More on that in the paper tomorrow.

Colby Lewis: "It was one of those days that could have gone either way." (Check the stat line on that one. It certainly didn't go the way he wanted it to.)

Zimmerman: Asked him about the two walks he drew (not to mention the near-homer). He reminded me that he said he was going to try to take more pitches this year. Man of his word, that Zimm.

Jermaine Van Buren on the hill currently for the Nationals. "YMCA" done playing on the speakers. And my goodness some dude named Corky Miller (used to be on "Life Goes On?") just jacked a two-run homer to left. (Journeyman. .190 career average, I'm told.)

We're in the top of the seventh. Braves 9, Nationals 6

hey barry - will you do a story on the lucky fan who predicts the rotation correctly? Maybe a sidebar for the daily notebook?

Barry, I'm so glad you've got this blog to keep us entertained for what is likely to be an otherwise painful year. Without this forum, we'd never have gotten a glimpse of this side of you (doubt the 35 cent edition allows comments about developmentally disabled b-list actors from heartwarming shows of the 90s). Will the blog continue in the regular season? Will the raccoon be making regular appearances?

Readjusting to this 20 degree weather after the warm weekend in FL (minus Saturday) sucks. BTW Bonefish Willy's was good, even if it was too cold that night to sit on the deck. Next year!

- Jenn (who said "hi" in Vero Beach on Friday, recognizing you from your video on this site) :)
