6/6/06. The Number of the Beast and all that stuff. Nationals going for win number six in a row. It's been a few days since the last Nat went on the DL and we've got a bad feeling that somebody's going down tonight. After crunching some numbers, we believe that the six most likely candidates are as follows:
Chad Cordero: #32. 3 x 2 = 6.
Nick Johnson: #24. 2 + 4 = 6. And he's just about due for his annual stint on the DL to begin with.
Jon Rauch: #51. 5 + 1 = 6. And that beard. Spooky.
Alfonso Soriano: #12; 21 HRs. 1 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 6. Yikes.
Jose Vidro: #3. 2nd baseman. 3 x 2 = 6. Scared? Yes, you are.
Ryan Zimmerman: #11. But Brendan Harris wears #4. 11 - 4 =
6 7. Now subtract 1. See? And his back is killing him. Admit it; you're a little nervous about his back, aren't you...
