Looking forward to the long homestand beginning tomorrow night, but I’m sure the Nationals front office is pretty bummed the streak didn’t last just a few more days. They probably would have sold another 5,000-10,000 more seats per game during the streak, as it would have given people an added incentive to come to the ballpark.
If Lannan can come up with another solid outing tomorrow night and get to .500, I’ll feel really good about he and Martis anchoring our rotation for the rest of the season. We still need more consistency from Olsen’s outings. What will the Nats do with Cabrera? It’s probably still too early to say. They need him to eat some innings for now. He’s too wild to send to the bullpen. But we’re paying him a decent chunk of change and I don’t think we want to rush any more of our young guys to the bigs just yet. Maybe by Monday we’ll start having some games without rain continuously in the forecast…we can only hope.
