Halfway home after tonight

Game #81 starts in a moment...and the Nats sit at 48-32.
Let me say that again. The Nats are 48-32, and atop the NL East. Sinking in yet, America?
This is fun. And oh yes, Strasmas goes against Drew Pomeranz...meaning we get to see two guys from the '09 NCAA tournament go head-to-head as pros (since they didn't in college*).
*Strasburg at San Diego State, Pomeranz at Ole Miss
At any rate, the so-called "experts" can shut up now. This Nats team is for real.
Now if they just get a top notch pitcher by the trade deadline to step in when Strasburg gets shut down in September...


  1. After the All-Star Game, awaits the big showdown between Nats and Mets in what I hope will be a battle for first place. How do you feel about Strasburg getting shut down this season?

    1. At first, I was against it. After reading Thomas Boswell's column (in the Washington Post) on Saturday, I totally get it now.
      It's in everybody's best interest(s) to shut him down come that NEXT year, he can go all out (within reason, of course) and truly dominate.
      Now, I got one for YOU: Pablo Sandoval starting over David Wright? Never mind Ryan Zimmerman getting shafted; how do you justify the Panda beating out DW?
