"The first couple times you face your old team, there's kind of a weird vibe there. But you got to get through it and do your job." (Mike Stanton, via Washington Post, 8/3/2006)
Hey Mike, since when are you concerned with doing your job? Couldn't you have just, like, balked in Kearns? You know, just for old times' sake?
Armas stinks. Stanton snuffs out Nats' late rally with a nice-and-easy three pitch save, striking out Escobar.
Tony (sore) Armas gets torched again: 3.2 IP, 8 hits, 6 runs. And to think that just a few weeks ago his name was being seriously tossed around as tradebait.
Ryan Wagner does his best Roy Corcoran impersonation in the 7th.
2 more bombs for Fonzie (*yawn* another one to lead off the game). Nick J goes long, too.
