Who knew that the major selling point of Will Middlebrooks would be his blazing speed?

The official scorer needs to change that to an error. 99 % of outfielders catch that ball 99% of the time. Unfortunately, Ross is one of the 1%.

Can they change Aviles's "groundout" to a hit while they're at it?

Red Sox opponents should start hiring me to interview their starters the day before they pitch at Fenway. Monday I talked to Parker, yesterday it was McCarthy.

Guess we can't put Middlebrooks in the Hall of Fame just yet.

Nats just walked off with a come from behind win. Why do I have the impression that this team can't do that?

I know all about sacrificing effectiveness to save money - I work for the government.

M Aviles continues his lonely effort to make this team likable.

Well, at least Pedey refused to jeter two games in a row.

Am less than impressed with the Adrian Gonzalez era...

Losing two out of three at home against a bad team isn't good.

Good thing they didn't let Adrian Gonzalez come up for a third time with a chance to tie the game. He might have done it.

I think I only had a chance to watch about 15 minutes total of the entire three-game series against Oakland, so the losses are on me. That being said, when did Josh Reddick become a werewolf?

He must have contracted Super Herpes. It's affecting his mental functions.
