Final: Nationals 8, Astros 6 (10)

Bonus baseball is great. In Viera, even better.

Here's how this one was decided in the 10th. Leonard Davis hit a one-out single up the middle. And then someone named Brad Eldred just absolutely drilled a pitch out to left, giving the Nationals the victory.

That'll be it for tonight. I'll catch up with you bright and early tomorrow.

Barry (& others):
Eldred's had a couple of "cups of coffee" in the Majors, (PIT & MIL, if memory serves), but is buy-and-large, a career minor-leaguer. Good for him.

BinM, just Pittsburgh. Was with the ChiSox AAA affiliate in Charlotte last year.

I remember Eldred (No, he's not the rally possum, Emily. That would be Elwood) from Friday's televised game against the Orioles.

Sorry, natscan and other northern baseball buddies. Just saw the results.

"buy-and-large" -- I like it. But then, I'm Lyve-yn Large.

Sounds like to me like Elwood's in mid-season form.

Ok Barry, you are 2 for 2. Lotta questions about Kearns have now been answered. Thank you.

Now. What about Flores? And who are some of these other guys who have been playing and winning?

Great Work Barry but...

Thanks for the Kearns information, but two key questions were left unanswered. What about his swing and huge hole inside? Does he believe he must change? What did he do in the off season to address that hole in his swing or does he think it does not exist. Finally, what does Eckstein think about Kearns swing and what chances have been made to date? Still Barry, you are sight for sore eyes, welcome home.

Barry...It's 7 a.m. Eastern, and still no new posts today. Chico would have two posts and a scoop by how.

Hard work is great. In Viera, even better.

... thanx natsfan1a1. But like the man says, "the name of the game is pitching".

All's right with Nats' World at Space Coast Stadium, Barry is back in Viera!

Any idea on any likely trading partners.....This roster has too many right-handed outfielders....Who needs Josh W or WMP or Kearns? Nobody will take Dukes and Milledge seems like an Acta favorite.

Also, Chico would have bought batting helmet ice cream sundaes for all Nats fans in attendance.

It would be more accurate to say that Milledge was a Bowden favorite. Milledge was an essential part of the carefully honed rep as a shrewd trader. And when did Acta make trades anyway? I doubt there are any untouchables if the right offer came along--other than the two Zimmerman(n)s, John Lannan and Adam Dunn.

Speaking of (Don't Call Me Ryan) Zimmermann and Dunn, new post up.
