Tracking the Nats’ historic chase of the ’62 Mets
Current Record: 24-35 (.406, 12 GB)
Projected Record: 66-96
Price of a Fat Cat Seat in the New Stadium: $400
Number of Such Seats Ray King Could Purchase If His Salary Doesn’t Change and We Don’t Account for Taxes or Any Other Expenses: 2,125, or 26 per game
Parsing the Win: Nats 6, Pittsburgh 5. A victory for rarely used verbs. Cristian Guzman scampered home on a wild pitch. Manny Acta announced Nook Logan would be platooning with Ryan Langerhans (who the second-greatest Nats blog calls “White Nook Logan”). Plus you have to imagine there was some glowering (often written, never spoken) going on in the Bucs’ dugout.
