I'm a Nats fan and proud of it. I was a tad annoyed that President Obama skipped throwing out the first pitch at Nationals Park this season. And he compounded the diss last night from the Fox broadcast booth at the All-Star Game. Reflecting on the laudable "parity" in Major League Baseball this year, he noted that every community in the country has "some hope" for the postseason -- except for the Nats. Geez! You'd think after that looping first pitch of his barely reached home plate, he'd be a bit slower to criticize. In terms of MPH, the prez's effort couldn't even compare to octogenarian Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens' delivery at Wrigley Field a couple of years ago.
But then I watched the Nats' lone All-Star, Ryan Zimmerman, fly out to center and consulted the standings -- which clearly show the Nationals on track for a 120-loss season. I reached a new conclusion:
The truth hurts.
