He's Wasting His Time Making A Logical Argument

If you missed MASN's broadcast of yesterday's game, here's the good stuff, and it shows Don Sutton at his best.

I'm amazed that Manny didn't kick Hunter in the nuts. I would've.

Hunter's probably still hung over. You can practically see his giant greenish-gray liver trying to lurch out of his bulbous stomach like the creature from Alien.


  • The best part of watching yesterdays game last night (in prime time) was seeing the crawl along the bottom tell us that Flores hits a 3 run home run - just as he's walking up the the plate!

    Gotta love MASN.

    Oh, and thanks for pointing out the distorted perspective when they bop between the crawl and full screen mode. Now that is totally distracting!

  • I like the crawl. It just makes all our favorite fat nats look fatter. Just a jolly roly-poly nine!

  • From the minor league baseball blog:

    Wendelstedt said he ejected Lannan because he felt that Lannan didn't like that Howard hit a two-run home run and watched the flight of the ball in the third inning.

    "With the situation, the at-bat before, Howard hit a home run. When he hits a home run, Howard kind of watched the home run go. I just got kind of a vibe," Wendelstedt told a pool reporter. "I know he is a young pitcher, but he was upset and he watched Howard as he did his trot. Justifiably, I would have been upset, too.

    "Unfortunately, when he came up, he got hit with the first pitch, which hit him in the shoulder. My hands are tied with the new MLB guidelines that have been in for about four or five years. Once a player hits a home run, they call it a red flag. It was just a bad time to lose his control. I can't read his mind. I don't know if he intentionally did it or not. Like I told Manny, I can't judge my decision whether the guy has been in the league 20 years or his first day. ... I have to treat everybody the same whether they are a young kid or veteran player."

  • If that was the case, why did he hit Utley before Howard? That makes no sense. If you're planning to throw at a guy you don't put somebody on first BEFORE you drill him. That was a horseshit call.

    And even if the ump's 'vibe' was right, i was under the impression that there's an unwritten rule that you don't show up the pitcher after a bomb, or you can expect to get nailed next time up.

  • Way to go, Sutton. Good to see him stand up right away on that one. And coming from a HOF pitcher, that means a lot. I hope Kasten is demanding that Bud's office sanctions that lousy ump.

  • Other than Da Meathook, Don Sutton was the best additon the Nats made this past off-season.
