Nationals Journal: September 7, 2008 - September 13, 2008

Can anybody find a 1999 Cobras throwback jersey?

You know those golfer types who can somehow remember every shot they've ever taken? (I never understood this; for me, every three-putt... and five-putt... is immediately sent to the part of my brain that specializes in repression.) Anyway, Manny Acta...

Careers going up, going down

Potomac left no doubt about this one. The P-Nats (Washington's Class A affiliate) won the Carolina League championship last night -- it's called the Mills Cup -- with an 8-2 victory against Atlanta affiliate Myrtle Beach. And with that, Potomac...

Idle chatter from a silent stadium

Random notes, one for every person in the stands tonight at Dolphin Stadium. * Here's what Manny Acta said about Elijah Dukes' apology: "I think it was good that he understood that it was, you know, it has no place...

Dukes: "I basically let my emotions just get the best of me"

Elijah Dukes today issued an apology for his actions in Wednesday's game against the Mets. I'll let you read it in the full context. He spoke for about 40 seconds -- no script or anything; he just talked. Today, while...

P-Nats one win away

Just a few quick things to start the morning. First of all, thanks for a great, lively discussion yesterday. Today's off day feature comes in the form of a Boz column -- link is here -- that crystallizes the stakes...

All the news that's fit to print -- and more

If there's an upside to New York, aside from the pastrami, it's that anything that happens here seems to super-size, almost automatically. So many people see everything; so many people talk about anything. As a result, stories live on --...

Pelfrey: "He was telling me to 'Bring it on.' "

My apologies for not updating the blog during the game tonight. I had to keep a running tab on the game (and all of its madness) for the print edition, so I could file a story with a degree of...

A wide-ranging interview with Jim Bowden

Today during batting practice, a trio of media members, myself included, talked to GM Jim Bowden regarding ... well, you can see for yourself. Plenty of interesting stuff here, though. I'll just post the transcript. Q: What do you make...

Sky High

Here at Shea for the last time, I'm giving those not fortunate enough to be here (ahem, ahem) a glance inside the mod royal blue exterior. The mezzanine level hallway, leading to the press box, is plastered with super-enlarged photos...

Feeling fine

Let this stand as a reminder that we're chatting today at 2 p.m. Yesterday's game was just the latest with plenty of zest (and none of it owed to Nelson Figueroa). My gamer begins with the man who ended things...

The fourth inning isn't even finished yet, and...

Dmitri Young is back

The folks at Shea have been ultra-slow to post the lineups for tonight -- I'll post them as soon as I get them -- but in the meantime I'll post about one person who's back with the Nats but not...

Pepper

Baseball's winding season is long enough to allow for stories of all kinds, including the off-beat. So here ya go: Pepper, it turns out, is alive and well. Maybe I just have a soft spot in my heart for pepper....

4 hours, 34 minutes of baseball

In a 14-inning game, especially on getaway day (that is, the day when teams travel right after the final pitch), everybody gets a bit punch-drunk. Yesterday's game had that affect, somehow: When Lastings Milledge saw a tandem of unimposing reporters...

A lefty versus righties

Last night's game offered plenty of fireworks, plenty of big moments put the smaller contributions in the shadows. Sure, the five home runs offered plenty to talk about. You could start with Ryan Zimmerman, who is locked in right now....
