First Nats sweep ever puts them in first place; latest point in season for the top spot for a D.C. team since 1933

Thanks to Sweep, a Historic FirstThe Post
I missed Saturday and Sunday’s games. This means that I did not see (in no particular order):

  • An improbable sweep against the first place Marlins, who had dominated the Nats thus far. Tom Boswell (The Post) is excited, but be warned, he calles them “plucky.”
  • Marlon Byrd having an altercation with an umpire.
  • May’s Rookie of the Month, Ryan Church going deep for a 3 run HR.
  • I didn’t miss Brad Wilkerson and Jose Guillen though, they sat out. Wilkerson played a little defense though.
  • Tomo Ohka showing up Frank Robinson for which he was fined (The Wash. Times).
  • Cristian Guzman is thought to have troubles playing on real grass (The Wash. Times), as opposed to the fake stuff in Minnesota. Special assistant to the GM, Barry Larkin is helping him out. I believe that Larkin could best help him out by borrowing his uniform and playing.
  • Over 40,000 fans at RFK yesterday, which means the park only had room for another 5,000 people. The game sold about 18,000 walk–up tickets.
  • MASN losing power during the second inning yesterday. That meant Ch. 20 viewers got to watch M*A*S*H. Do you think 20 is contractually obligated to use M*A*S*H because of the similarity of the initials?
  • Okay, I have go do my “paper route” now.
