If I were capable of waking up before noon, I'd be at this game, I think. Should be a fun one.
   2. Arb Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:11 PM (#4104019)
Pinky update, please.
   3. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:23 PM (#4104039)
That was a really nice play by Tejada, despite everyone being safe.
   4. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:23 PM (#4104042)
And he should have been out at second!
   5. formerly dp Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:24 PM (#4104044)
I really like Tejada. Hoping he makes Jose seem like a distant memory.
   6. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:26 PM (#4104050)
That double steal was a stupid move. Come on, Davey.
   7. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:30 PM (#4104057)
Ruben works the count like a boss, and is hitting everything hard.
   8. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:31 PM (#4104061)
Vanover's being mean to Our Hero.
   9. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:34 PM (#4104066)
Junkballers like Strasburg can't succeed with their nibbling against the Mets. This team has a collective batting eye as good as any team in the league.
   10. formerly dp Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:35 PM (#4104068)
Dammit, that was tagged.
   11. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:37 PM (#4104070)
That's just not fair.
   12. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:38 PM (#4104072)
According to PitchFX, that called strike on Davis was in almost the same place as one of the first two balls. In fact, it was a little more off-the-plate than the ball.
   13. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:39 PM (#4104073)
Called strike three, that is.
   14. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:39 PM (#4104074)
At least they made him throw a lot of pitches.
   15. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:40 PM (#4104075)
Strike 3 to Davis looked like a ball, but it was a ridiculous pitch nonetheless.
   16. JustDan Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:41 PM (#4104076)
MLB gameday has all pitches in the bottom third of the strike zone called balls. Must be a calibration error.
   17. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:53 PM (#4104098)
Santana is going to have a hard time getting out of the 4th at this rate.
   18. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:55 PM (#4104105)
Leverage of 2.9, almost as high as one can go with two outs in the top of the second, and he gets a little wild.
   19. Dr. Vaux Posted: April 11, 2012 at 01:59 PM (#4104113)
That might have been the most ridiculous walk I've ever seen.
   20. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:00 PM (#4104117)
If PitchFX is to be believed, Nationals' radio guys outrage at that ball four to Thole is taking things a bit far.
   21. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:12 PM (#4104146)
Glad to see johan has decided to strike everybody out. THAT won't put stress on the shoulder. No, sir-ee...
   22. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:35 PM (#4104193)
Are Gameday's strikeouts sponsored by Mazda?
   23. hokieneer Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:46 PM (#4104212)
What's with Johan: 8K in 5 innings
   24. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:53 PM (#4104227)
99 pitches and a leadoff walk in the 6th. TC, come on down!
   25. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:54 PM (#4104229)
He's good at pitching?
   26. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:55 PM (#4104231)
Acostalypse now!
   27. Dog on the sidewalk Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:55 PM (#4104232)
25 was in response to 23. Good outing by Johan. Let's see how many starts it takes for him to get a run of support.
   28. hokieneer Posted: April 11, 2012 at 02:58 PM (#4104235)
He's good at pitching?

I couldn't imagine he'd be missing that many bats so soon. 56 strikes in 99 pitches: was he a all over the place and got some people looking?
   29. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:04 PM (#4104244)
"Murphy's glove can win games."

Or somethingn like that.
   30. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:06 PM (#4104246)
That half inning was like a bad date.
   31. JustDan Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:13 PM (#4104259)
Stras is probably done after this half-inning since he's due to lead off.
   32. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:17 PM (#4104261)
Ike off the schneid!
   33. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:20 PM (#4104265)
Jason Bay is bad.
   34. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:20 PM (#4104266)
I'm counting on a Jason Bay out here.
   35. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:20 PM (#4104267)
Vanover is not making any friends today.
   36. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:21 PM (#4104269)
UPDATE: I knew I could count on you, Jason Bay.
   37. JustDan Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:22 PM (#4104272)
Strasburg: 6 innings, 108 pitches. 2H 3BB 9K and 1 HBP.
   38. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:22 PM (#4104273)
Larry Vanover has made Strasburg look a lot worse than he was out there today.

And Strasburg looked pretty damn good anyway.
   39. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:24 PM (#4104279)
So, how long until Ian Desmond turns back into a pumpkin?

Or has Davey Johnson somehow managed to work magic on the kid?
   40. JustDan Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:27 PM (#4104283)
Desmond hit relatively pretty well when Johnson was coach so I would't discount the last theory.
   41. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:31 PM (#4104286)
The Nats' radio guys say that Collins got the heave-ho. Way back in the first inning I expected it to be Davey.
   42. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:31 PM (#4104288)
Okay, I'm only watching Gameday...can someone tell me why Larry Vanover ejected Terry Collins?

Given Vanover's strike zone today, I'm inclined to blame him and not Collins.
   43. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:32 PM (#4104291)
Time for a patented Jayson Werth GIDP!
   44. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:34 PM (#4104294)
Well, close enough. Thanks for nothing Werth.
   45. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:35 PM (#4104297)
HUGE K of Werth.
   46. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:39 PM (#4104307)
Ain't the way I was thinking we would score, but man I'll take it.
   47. Lassus Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:40 PM (#4104309)
8 walks. Warthen needs to be ####### fired. For ####'s sake.
   48. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:40 PM (#4104310)
HUGE BB of DeRosa. Godddammit.
   49. JustDan Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:40 PM (#4104312)
Hell of an AB.. I was hoping for another WP
   50. fra paolo Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:42 PM (#4104314)
The old 'walk is as good as hit' ploy.
   51. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:49 PM (#4104321)
PLEASE get well soon, David... Can't take this bagel offense.
   52. There are no words... (Met Fan Charlie) Posted: April 11, 2012 at 03:54 PM (#4104329)
NOT how a 10-pitch AB should end...
   53. AJMcCringleberry Posted: April 11, 2012 at 04:07 PM (#4104342)
This offense sucks.
   54. AJMcCringleberry Posted: April 11, 2012 at 04:39 PM (#4104364)
Strikes, #############. How does Warthen still have a job?
