    Here's a link to the Nats broadcasters so many of you were wondering about. Bob Carpenter is a good PBP guy but Tom Paciorek really drags him down. Charlie Slowes on radio is a decent PBP guy but I wonder how much he really knows about baseball and the other guy is new this season and I haven't heard him very much.

    I think Baseball in Washington is a must. I think that baseball can do a lot for a "national-type" team to cheer for. I think the heart of the government can now have a break at the "National Pastime" that a Pro Hockey Team or a Pro Basketball Team cannot bring to the table.

    But, I worry about the viability of Washington baseball. I hope baseball does not drag their heels on this franchise. It is not fair to drag down Washington again.

    I mean, c'mon, where else could they go. Portland? Norfolk? There's no place else...but contraction.
    DC will be fine once they get a real owner in here. There is virtually no marketing of the team and they had nothing but bad press all post season. The DC council messed around with the stadium deal and nearly lost the team. Bowden made some terrible deals and made the team worse than last season. Any good baseball fan knew this. MLB won't be moving this team because they put in too much time and effort in getting this new stadium deal and they will draw well as the DC area is over 5 million in population.
