Nats Feel the Funk After Latest Loss – The Post
I was down the shore, so I missed the Nats losing 3 out of 4 to the Brewers. I think I was the lucky one. Yesterday they lost to former Nat, Tomo Ohka. Today, they are back at home and may face another former Nat (The Post), Zach Day, (The Wash. Times) if he comes out of the bullpen for the Rockies.
Theoretically, the Rox are just what the Nats need right now. Colorado is 7 – 35 on the road, while our heroes are 30 – 13 at home. I like that matchup on paper, particularly with Rockies coming from the dry, high-plains air to the oppressive coastal humidity.

RF Jose Guillen plays hurt and does not let anyone forget it. At least he plays well.
In the breakout of today’s Post articles, he says “I can tell you this: I’m really missing my bodyguard.” He misses Nick Johnson and so do we. He is apparently the difference between wining series and losing them, as the Nats are stinking up the joint since he got hurt.
