Friday Night Thoughts

Before I say anything else, I'd like to point out that you don't need to watch the game to hurt after games like tonight. I may be unable to watch games anymore, but I do still follow them!

That being said, I have a few links to throw out:
Nats call up Pete Orr. Didn't see that one coming. I guess since there are only 3 more games left until September call-ups, it didn't really matter who they called up...I assume they would have called up Orr anyways. But I could probably name 10 players I would have rather seen called up than Orr. Also not exactly pleased that Orr wore Nicky J's old number.

Which current Nats player holds the record for most HR in a season without a sacrifice fly? Shouldn't be too difficult of a guess.

Which current Nats player was designated by Dave Allen at FanGraphs as "August's Best Hitter"? Also not too hard to guess.

Old friend Jon Rauch was traded to the Twins today for a PTBNL. I love Jon Rauch, but I am definitely not betting on the Twins next year after seeing the Diamondbacks turn into a pumpkin this year.

Call me crazy, but doesn't the Angels trade for Scott Kazmir make it more likely that John Lackey becomes a free agent this offseason? I'd like to see him wear a different shade of red if you know what I mean.

This is a little dated and a little off-topic, but Fantasy Sports Insurance? Really?

  1. Now that I think about it, I'm glad they did at least call up Orr. This time last year they'd have been apt to play with a short bench.

    Reason #54 (sorry, GEICO) why (Rizzo + Riggs) > (Bowden + Acta).


Please leave your questions and/or comments here and I'll get back to you ASAP!
