"I don't think [Utley injured Flores] on purpose, but he hit him good, and he's out for the season, I believe. Ultimately, you've got to pitch inside. If he likes it or not, I've got to pitch him inside. If I hit him, that's part of the game."
(Odalis Perez, via Washington Times, 9/4/2008)
Hold the lipstick & rouge, Charlie: Odalis Perez drilled Utley in the first, Milledge took him out in the fifth. Call it even.
Good news: Hey, Nationals went 8-1 on the homestand. Bad news: Padres running away with Worst-Place. There's still time..
- The Miracle of Jesus: Flores says he'll be back in '08.
- Not cheap! Nationals to drop prices for season tickets for 7,500 seats (but no, not the goldplated empty ones behind home plate).
- Callups. Catchers.
