"I don't think you can do this for six months."
(Austin Kearns, via Washington Post, 5/10/2007)
The Nationals Enquirer: ready to resume broadcasting.
Legal woes, technical difficulties, shoulder stiffness, general malaise shuts down the Enquirer for nearly two weeks.
So much, yet so little, has happened since the last time we checked in on the NAAAts. In no particular order: an eight game losing streak, a four game winning streak, a not-so-surprising trip to the DL for The Big Pattsy, a trip to the DL for Hill, the arrival of Tony Batista, personal stuff for Cordero, health-related problems for Mitchell Page, Zimmerman's 4am walk-off grand slam, the long awaited start to the Simontacchi Era in Washington (and the subsequent mispronounciation of his last name everywhere you turn. we say it like: seem-one-takki or sim-in-touchy), a near no-no for Staff Ace, Jason Bergmann, and last, but not least, the return of Billy Traber thanks to Jerome Williams -- who got drilled in the ass last night and landed on the 15-day DL with a bum shoulder.
That pretty much covers it, right?
