Catching up on the Nats before their return tonight against Rays

The Washington Nationals welcome the Tampa Bay Rays to D.C. tonight. Woo hoo! The District vs. an estuary. The Rays may have turned out to be a strong team with an excellent manager in Joe Maddon, but I’m having trouble getting any extra excitement. I suppose it is Northeast Corridor bias — teams outside of the traditional D.C. rivalry cities (plus a few other major U.S. cities) don’t move the meter for me. I’m excited for Nats baseball though. I’m not too optmistic with Chein Ming Wang vs. David Price tonight.
