Panama!

That's what's playing on the PA right now. You know, from Van Halen. (Did I mention, too, that it's Armed Forces Appreciation Day (AFAD) here at HSCS? Well, it is. Wait till you see the pictures or highlights of the Nationals wearing blue camouflage hats. Apparently, if they're in a lake, they'll blend right in. They had a helicopter land in center field before the game and three dudes jumped out and one of them threw the first pitch. Col. Steve Kirkpatrick. And when he bounced the pitch in, the PA guy actually said through the speakers so everyone could hear, "It must be helicopter lag." He's no Jim Clarke, I tell ya.)

The game: After six complete, Nationals lead, 7-3. They got three more in the sixth on a bases-loaded walk to Travis Lee and a two-run single from Josh Wilson (who's now 3 for 3). Jason Bergmann is in his third inning of relief right now (top of the seventh), and I won't post till he's done, I suppose. He allowed a single in the fifth and a double to Jason Lane (triple short of the cycle) and then a two-out single in the seventh.

(And after Nook Logan tracked down another fly ball, some dude in the stands turned and yelled to HofF Don Sutton that his "center fielder is going to be a Gold Glover, Don! A Gold Glover.")

And that would be Bergmann recording a strikeout to end the inning. A nice outing. I think we'll see Ray King and Chad Cordero over the final two innings.

In the middle of the seventh, Nationals 7, Astros 3.

Coincidence or trend? 2nd day in a row of improved starting pitching.

Hats off to the Post (and the Nats) for this.

As we try to define what kind of team/fans/market we are, Barry and us (we?) have input. Well done.

PS...Sam wants Barry Blog during the regular season. I think I could speak for most here to agree! Come on Barry and Mr. Wa Post guys/gals. As the Nats win their way to the World Series this year, you need a top guy posting early and often. ;-)

Josh Wilson is a good, steady player. The kind of guy that'll play everyday at a different position and provide a little bit of pop here and there. He's also the kind of player that you hate to have playing against you, a David Eckstein-type player. It's good to see a player like Josh with the Nats, it's a good step for the team and a good spot for him.
