"We have a real good chemistry this year. We have a nice group of guys and we are having fun. We can hit. We hit last year. We just needed the starting pitchers to keep us in the game. We are going to score a lot of runs and win a lot of games."

Nationals 6, Rockies 4: If a team wins in Washington D.C., and no one's there to see it, does it make a sound?
Good News! Nats are back above .500 thanks to another "scrappy", "gritty" etc. win.
Bad News! Plenty of good seats still available. The smallest announced crowd in Nationals history (11,191) at the game last night.
Good News! Strasburg dominated yesterday in AA, and the team isn't going to rush him up to the majors.
Bad News! Ryan Zimmerman left last night's game after feeling a "cramp" in his OTHER hamstring (not the one that made him miss a week already this season.)
Good News/Bad News: Jason Marquis is heading to the DL because of "loose bodies" in his right elbow. So that's why he's sucked so bad! Ted Lerner would like his $15 million back, please.
