Nats practice interrupted by fish falling from the sky

“I’ve never seen that on a baseball field,” Span said. “I’ve seen it on T.V., you know, bird carrying their dinner. I’ll tell you what, that bird definitely didn’t have good hands. He dropped his dinner.”

Raining animals

Which sign of the Apocalypse is this? I mean, it's gotta be at least the seond, after a Washington baseball team finishing in first place...

It was just Jeff Loria cutting more payroll...

The glorious tanks at the Marlins trough...errr... ballpark are being turned into tip jars.

Which sign of the Apocalypse is this? I mean, it's gotta be at least the second, after a Washington baseball team finishing in first place...

Nothing compared to what happened in Chelyabinsk yesterday. A rock falling from outer space can really ruin your day. I just can't imagine what that must have been like for the kids and the old folks. Look at the videos on rt.com: the light so bright that moving shadows are formed.

Or it could be a good thing, for some anyway.

I think this means Davey Johnson is going to be elected Pope.

The thought of birds having hands is quite frightening to me.

Was it wrapped in Luca Brasi's bulletproof vest?

Sneak attack from the Marlins. Who said Loria's not trying to be competitive.
