Astros Can’t Steal Win Against Nats – The Post
Charlie Slowes said that yesterday’s 8-5 victory may have been the most exciting in history, but after the game manager Frank Robinson was bawling in the clubhouse because he had to pull C Matthew LeCroy from behind the plate after 7 Astros stole bases and two errors. LeCroy to his credit, understood why he was pulled.
The Nats bats were alive, especially 2B Jose Vidro who had a 3 run homer and another RBI. Alfonso Soriano scored three runs and Dutch! and 3 RBIs to go along with some great glove work.
More from The Wash. Times: Robinson tearful after win
I think he is really upset that so many Nats bloggers are on hiatus right now. Don’t worry, Frank WWN will be here through the holiday weekend.

District Puts Dispute With Comcast on Hold – The Post
Don’t expect anything to happen over the weekend in the District’s dispute with Comcast. The misguided legislation passed recently is probably not enforceable anyway.
If the District was going to do anything, it should have sued MLB and Peter Angelo$ the day after the Nats sale was completed. Once the Lerners own the team outright, MLB cannot threaten to delay the process.
