Of all the things that went right tonight (or this a.m.), probably the best thing was making Baltimore an hour after the last pitch. We parked in "The Yards" lot and had no trouble making our escape. Smooth as silk. Sickos that we are, we'll see all three games this week here, head home for a few days and see all three next weekend against the Braves.
I have some business in Florida early this week, Ft. Lauderdale in fact. While the Nats are there. Hmmmmmmm.
Veteran observers that we are, my wife and I came to a conclusion on the short drive. We didn't do statistical research to back it up. We have decided that we think Zimmermann is the Nationals best pitcher.
Dibble always talks about trusting your stuff and dealing with stuff when it goes wrong. Zimmermann seems to have both of those under control. We enjoy watching him throw.
How much of a hurry were the Sox to get out of there tonight? Send up the pitcher, end the game on a pitch that's 12-feet high! They did that for you, Tyler.
