    Re: 8/25 Game Thread

    Until this season ther was just no NL teams close by
    I totally agree that it's great having real (NL League) baseball in DC. I just wish the Reds made more than one trip here a year.

    And while I've never met Marty, I've met Joe a number of times over the years (We are both alumni of the same high school, even though he is much, much older than I am--Go Big Blue), and he is a fantastic human being.

    No special promotion. The Nats have been drawing like that all season. Also went over two million in attendance.

    Now he can create a save situation for Weathers...which he has just done.
    Which is exactly what I meant, but failed to articulate properly. One thousand pardons to the "eligibility for save situation" police....

    New team effect or not, it is still impressive to do those numbers anywhere for a weekday afternoon affair...against the Reds.
