Maybe I was wrong






about Dukes and the slide. Or maybe not.



I hope I can make these pics work. Anyway, looking at a pic of Dukes shows me he did have the proper leg extended and the other leg curled. Probably good form. But I look at Flores hitting the dirt face-first and getting that hand out - he wanted that plate and was going to get it before Schneider (NOT Snyder, Don) got him.

Now, let's see if I can make the one with Dukes work.


OK, I can't. But it is here, the seventh pic in the gallery:

By the way, browsing through the gallery of available Nats photos was scary. Ryan Drese?!? It brought back some ugly memories.

Putting the slide aside, it was a heck of a play from Markakis.

True that. You agree he should have been sent?

Yeah, I agree with you on that. There were two outs and it took a really great throw from Markakis. The way they've been hitting the ball, you never know if you're going to get another good chance to plate the run.
