Here’s my idea for the Washington Nationals season — just score 4 or more runs for Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez and Jordan Zimmermann start. Take your chances when Ross Detwiler and Dan Haren pitch. Three runs might even be enough for Stras, Gio and Znn.
I’m not going to get into haiku (DC Sports Bog, The Post) or caring about what some flyover city’s columnist says.
Philadelphia Phillies starter John Lannan got some measure of revenge in last night’s no decision. He’s better than Haren. Jonathan Papelbon vultured a win by giving up Chad Tracy’s 2 out, 2 strike 9th inning home run. Tracy has produced a little as of late which is nice. Fernando Abad couldn’t get out of the ninth (The Nats Enquirer), giving up Dominic Brown’s game winning single with 2 outs and 2 strikes.
The season series with the Phillies is tied.
Also, pranks aren’t cute (The Nats Enquirer) when you are underachieving and a game under .500.
