"I was just trying to do too much."
(Jerome Williams, via Washington Post, 3/05/2007)
Enormous letdown. Rotation reality setting in?
Let the overreaction begin!
After a scoreless first, Jerome Williams wishing for a do-over after nightmare audition: 4 hits, 2 walks 6 runs (4 earned).
Doesn't get much better for Luis Martinez and Tim Redding in 7-run 4th.
- Fick vs. Gonzalez! War of Words! Fick (3-run HR), postgame (via Atlanta Journal Constitution): "He didn't like that first swing I took, and he tried to buzz me. He definitely doesn't want to fight me." Why? "Just because." Let the record show that The Nationals Enquirer loves Robert Fick.
- Braves 14. NAAAtionals 5. Fire Manny Acta.
- Wayne Lydon went 0-1.
