- NAAAts win second straight (four scoreless innings for Chico), claw their way back into Grapefruit League race with 3-0 win over Marlins. Just 6 games back...there's still time...
- The looming catastrophe that is the 2007 Nationals is encouraging a bit of soul searching among several Nationals bloggers. I'm guessing that by the time August rolls around, roughly half of the hundreds of Nationals blogs will be dead. There's a 50/50 chance this will be one of them.
