Ask Boswell: Nats Spring Training, Stephen Strasburg, Caps and moreThe Post
Oh my, I do wonder what our dear Thomas Boswell will say about our Washington Nationals. This isn’t a good week to be a front office apologist is it?

Jason Marquis has rough first start with Nationals in 8-4 loss to PhilliesThe Post
Pitching to Ryan Howard isn’t a great idea. The Philadelphia Phillies slugger has yielded two homers in two games.

A few highlights — Ian Desmond homered, Cristian Guzman tripled several Washington Capitals were there, Tyler Walker pitched two perfect innings out of the bullpen, 27,000+ tickets sold.

Desmond is having a feast or famine few days though.

This probably isn’t the best week to learn the Nats are #3 in operating income.

Today’s game is at 4:35 p.m. — Charlie and Dave on the ride home today.

Yet another Washingtonian pushing the ubiquitous Nats/DC sports, Penn State, commuting, bicycling, kayaking, broomball, skiing, gin & tonic agenda.

  1. I'd like to point out (as a CFA candidate) that the Nats also have a high debt to value ratio, in addition to their exceptional operating income. Its hard to finance debt (and impossible to accrue additional debt) without sufficient cash. The astute observer will note that this puts the Rangers in a difficult situation. One may also note that someone loaned the Yankees $1.4B, which buys a lot of Nathans.

  2. As someone who also has a high debt to value ratio (condo mortgage from 2007, before the market completely tanked) I don't have a problem telling someone whose net worth doubled from $1.5 billion in that same time period to not worry about a few million bucks for a decent bullpen or rightfielder.

    That being said, I'm delighted with the outcome of today's game.
