Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

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
