The good: Are you serious? Like seriously serious? OK, WMP had a nice running catch to his left. Kearnsie broke out of his homer slump. Yay!
The bad: Zim struck out looking while he was the tying run in the 7th. He left 3 on base, and is something like..1-857 with runners in scoring position this year. Kearnsie continues to be red hot in GIDP's. Yay! Chico allows 3HR's and walked 3 in 5 innings. He also threw 107 pitches. Fuck, Matty, why not just make it an even 125 pitches? Much easier to read the box score that way.
The Ugly: Cordero tops out at 82 mph for the night. Did Patterson pass on his virus to Chad before he left? Damn him! ::shakes fist:: Team batting average for the Nats? If you guessed .227, you're right! When Willy Harris (the hitting coach) was asked about it, he came up with this amazing answer:
"Concerns?" he said. "No. Not at all. Not at all." [Barry] asked what he was working on with certain guys. "Everything," he said. "These guys hit more than three and four baseball teams. They hit every day. We just need to execute in the game."
Re-read that bolded sentence. OK, now read it again. WHAT? O.o Is that English? Can someone please explain to me what the fuck he's talking about? My brain is about to explode trying to figure that out.
