Logan injured, Patterson out

Already 4-0 Marlins, and we have a bit of a development. In the the top of the fourth, Dan Uggla just ripped one to straightaway center field, and we got to see why they keep Nook Logan around. He went back on the ball and jumped to catch it right before he crashed into the wall. Perfectly timed.

Problem: Logan appeared to jam his left foot/ankle into the base of the wall awkwardly. He threw the ball back in, but immediately skipped away in pain. Long run for trainer Lee Kuntz out to center, and Acta went, too. But they were out there checking on him for several minutes, and Logan eventually had to walk all the way in with his arm around Kuntz.

No early word on the extent of the problem. (Wait: Cancel that.) Nats officials say it was a "left foot injury" (very revealing) and that he jammed his foot into the wall. He's undergoing X-rays as we speak.

And, meanwhile, that'll be it for Patterson. The guy after Logan's injury was none other than Cabrera. There may be two better hitters in the NL (Pujols and Howard?) but not many more. He got him to swing and miss a curveball early in the at-bat, and went to 2-2. But he then tried to sneak a fastball by him. It registered at 88 mph, and he deposited it into Section 446 above left field.

Fish 6, Nationals 0, and long reliever Levale Speigner on the hill, making his major league debut.

AND HERE COMES TEDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For those who missed it, Teddy Roosevelt (the 10-foot-tall version) got up on the roof in right field and sailed in on a wire. I mean, it was unbelievable. I'm sure Steinberg will cover it more. That's his gig, right?

hey, I am happy we have the Nats. We know they won't be world-beaters this year, but they are young. Let's grow with them and enjoy! it is a long season, so let's take pleasure in each game as it comes.

And it is hard to beat a flying Teddy!

No more flying Teddys! The last thing we need is for one of the "Presidents" to pull a hamstring.
