Jimmy Bo's Happy Funtime Band

Other notes to divert our mind from the pain...

  • Barry Larkin has given the first indication that he might play for the team this year. Of course, by the time he gets into playing shape and gets his timing down, it'll be September. Gee, thanks, Barry. Why couldn't you have thought of that 4 months ago?

  • Nick Johnson and his Achilles heel took BP yesterday, for the first time. He still complained of pain, but Tom McCraw, in a rare bout of alertness, said that he didn't show any signs of the pain bothering him.

  • The newly-acquired Kenny Kelly saw Pinch-running duties in the game, filling the void left by Tony "Baerga's legs" Blanco.

  • Vinny Castilla pinch hit at the end of the game. He had a solid AB, but lined out sharply to end the game. He was limping badly off the field, and didn't appear like he'd be able to run, or stay in the game, had he reached base.

  • The park continues to swallow up flyballs, with the Nationals hitting at least three balls that would've gone out of most other stadiums.

    Of course most every team we've played does the same thing, so moving the fences in wouldn't be a good idea.

  • Bodes says there are no immediate plans to fill in the two 40-man roster spots left open by yesterday's transactional flurry. Umm... alrighty.

  • A company is suing MLB, claiming they have the rights to the name "Washington Nationals" for merchandise and apparel. Isn't trademark law fun?
