Great first two games for the Nats so far. Let’s see if JZimm can keep pace with the rest of the staff and put goose eggs up there today.
Last night felt like a football game. I actually think I was colder last night than I was at any football game this past season. By the way, black mark for ownership on another promotion. They can never seem to get those right. If you are having dollar dog night, you should 1) start cooking them before the crowd arrives, 2) cook more than you usually do and 3) have additional staff since there will be a lot more business at those stands. If you don’t do that, it’s yet another addition to the long list of bait and switch moves by team ownership. Wouldn’t you rather have your fans in their seats rooting for their team instead of waiting on line in the concourse for 3 innings for a hot dog? If you did, last night’s situation wouldn’t have happened. But you want to give the appearance of a good promotion, without having to live up to the deal. I took a look at the lines and bought nachos instead. But really, if you’re going to do a promotion, do it right.
Joining Harper on the 2 homer game list already this season: Michael Morse. Yep.
Finally, it’s good to see that we re-signed Chris Young today. Nice to have someone like him stashed in the minors in case we need him.
