Much chatter this afternoon about a Sports Business Journal report that Washington Nationals games on TV attract an average of 9,000 households—-a number that, ironically enough, matches the number of Nats players that Manny Acta has had to place on the disabled list this season.

Nine thousand people? A 0.39 overall score? Really? I know Nats baseball isn’t as exciting or riveting as C-SPAN or Wolf Blitzer, but you figure the Nats would have scored a higher rating just by the people leaving their televisions on after a Skins minicamp update…
