Fiddling Around With History – The Post
Gene Weingarten‘s Pulitzer Prize winning story about a world-class violinist playing before subway patrons was not original! The same thing happened in 1930 in Chicago.
Here is the lineup (courtesy of Nationals Journal) that the Nationals used yesterday in beating the hated, cowardly, subsidized Orioles:
Bernadina – 8
Guzman – 2
Dukes – 9
Boone – 3
Casto – 5
Pena – 7
Harris – 4
Nieves – 2
Bergmann – 1
That is pretty far from a murderous row isn’t it? Yet, despite such an uninspiring lineup, the Nats found a way to win. Ronnie Belliard (Video — someone get this on youtube or Redlasso!) hit a two-run shot in the 12th to walkoff with the win this series and tie the season series. I’m pretty sure the Nats lead the all-time series too, despite the fact that they have to subsidize the Orioles because Peter Angelo$ is a coward.
Oh to have been there.
