If Lannan is reasonably sharp today, the team has a chance.

Looking forward to the game today, important for the Nats to keep taking 2 of 3. Hey, is it just me or does the Washington Post play up Nats losses more than their wins? As they climbed up over .500, the story was often at the bottom of the page or over on D5. Yesterday, they had a bad one, and lo and behold-- big placement in today's sports page-- lead story! This seems to be the Post's pattern with this team. What gives, Post sports editors?

Nats had a great comeback win against Johnson and the fish last season, down 4-0 in the 7th. The knocked him out and feasted on the 'pen. As I recall, Dunn had a big HR.

Lets do it again!

In this space yesterday someone interpreted my screen name. He said fpcsteve stood for "imbecile." Actually, I am a Presbyterian pastor in Nebraska and a lifelong baseball fan going back to the Bob Short Senators. My concern with the person who interpreted my name involves his practice of running players down in a public forum and arguing for them being benched or cut. I love baseball; I hate the practice of trashing people who are trying to entertain us. That's where I stand. I like this forum. But I think a little generosity is always a good thing.
