Couldn't resist checking out several pages of the thread and spotted Blitz's above. Knowing today was to be Cingrani v. Detwiler (until today, the Nat's best this year), I got some better than usual tix right off home plate so I could really watch closely without the binocs. No joke, next to me was a Little League grandmother scoring the game with her husband. She was scoring us and then would hand the score sheet to her husband, who'd score the Nats. She told me Cingrani had 11 Ks when I thought it was 12. She also used some profanity in expressing the same point of view--that Choo's sliding miss should have been error. Luckily her pencil had an eraser. Yep, a great day in DC. Lots and lots more of that please.
