    I think some of us are still leery based on how he opened the season. That was UGLY.

    Of course all his HR will be of the in-the-park variety. But I anticipate at least 97 of those.

    If a LOOGY is decent vs. RH batters, he's likely not a LOOGY.

    Giant Like! Thanks kal...has been a bit lonely trying to limit the number of bridge-jumpers fearing the roaring Nats train by myself.

    And, in other Nats news following their loss tonight, Strasburg (whose start today was pushed back to tomorrow) has been scratched again with a new projected start for Saturday, if at all again this season. Forearm "tightness" which, of course, can mean anything.

    How many AB's against RHB in those 36 innings? I'm guessing maybe 15. He's been a LOOGY since he came back from the DL.

    Clearly you have a keen baseball mind. That is genius-level stuff.

    Ok, let's go with semi-decent. The opposition does switch off to righties against them frequently.

    That was a seed by Mes. Nice.

    There's a "record"? Where is this record? Maybe GIK has it?

    Because they lost a game, while we might be about to lose to the Lastros to keep pace with them? Why would that cause piping down?

    The Reds led when Reynolds left, and added to the lead after he left. I didn't expect long innings from him. Just don't get hammered and turn it over to the bullpen. I'd like to see another 1.2 IP from him, but a loss tonight certainly wouldn't be on him. At all. I still think win and sweep, so it's moot.

    Astros have been swept at home 8 times this year.
