I never been to Boston but I have to imagine that there are many fine folks who call Beantown home. So I’m sure after the Nationals finished off their sweep of the Red Sox today with a 4-3 victory, they will cook up ways to lessen the sting of defeat.
Wait. What’s that? Those enterprising Bostonians have set up a Popeyes across the street from Fenway? Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Enjoy Lester and the boys!
Game ball(s): Danny Espinosa. The best thing that happened to Espinosa’s season was me cutting him from my fantasy baseball team in early May. You’re welcome Danny.
Goat(s): Alfredo Aceves. I guess cutting you in fantasy didn’t have the same effect.
Bryce Harper is still only 19: Roger Bernandina. After Bryce Harper drew a one-out walk in the top of the ninth, Bernandina delivered the game-winning RBI double (much to the displeasure of Bobby Valentine). I have to give Roger credit. He doesn’t have all that many productive at-bats, but when he does, they sure do seem to be big.
Current Record: 35-23
