Zimmerman on fire! Congrats to Joel Hanrahan!
- Kasten melts down over Comcast/MASN blackout mixup! From the Washington Post: "On no occasion are the Nats responsible for which network carries the games ...This has happened too often. I'm damn tired of it." From the Washington Times: "They do this [bleeeeep!] all the time. The notion is stupid. ... We are the last people to have any control over any of this."
- Third base coach is a thankless job; just ask Tim Tolman.
- These InterFaith Conference people need to relax, just a little bit. No one is being forced to participate in "Faith Day", folks. Plus, Washington has to pay for Da Meathook's new contract somehow, right?
- Bonds ties Aaron. I bet you a dollar Bruce Bochy sits him today so he can break it at home. Be on the lookout for a mysterious wave of sore arms throughout the NAAAts pitching staff after today's game, since nobody wants to be "That Guy."
