Fick in the house
For those of you who haven't tuned in yet -- or aren't planning to -- I'd point out that because Robert Fick isn't activated for tonight's game, he can't sit in the dugout. So he's going to sit in with Charlie and Dave in the radio booth in the second inning and Bob and Don in the MASN booth in the third.
Cue the jokes about the 35-second delay that might be needed.
Fick seems in good spirits after his mother's death. He really, really appreciated the support of the team -- both players and GM Jim Bowden. I'll write about it tomorrow, obviously (though I did ask Robert if, after he finished the TV work, he wanted to come write my notebook).
POSTGAME UPDATE: Brandon Watson was optioned back to Class AAA Columbus after the game to make room for Fick, who will be active for Wednesday's game. Watson took it a bit hard. "It is what it is," he said. But he was the only outfielder with options left, and the Nationals didn't want to risk losing anyone.
Didn't mean to interrupt previous lively discussion. And thanks for all the kind words about our anniversary. Mrs. Nationals Journal, who's back in D.C., is touched.
