  1. Homer is out. Really gutty performance tonight. 7-0, I don’t blame DB at all.

  2. Nice to see Robinson get on, regardless of how. That’s always a great first for a kid.

  3. Redleg Nation Poll Question: If you could only extend one pitcher Latos or Bailey right now who would it be?

    Short (and I mean short) explanations are welcome but not necessary.But please vote. I’ll tally at the end.

    So far there are 5 votes for Latos and the “never” controversial Mancuso is the lone vote for Homer Bailey. Although, many of you said it was a close call Latos wins going away!!!

    • @L.A.Red: I didn’t vote for Homer. I said Latos was younger, that’s an argument for him. I also said Homer is a free agent sooner. That’s also an argument for Latos because his extension would start a year later.

  4. Holy crap- Dusty does the right thing. We ding him often, now praise him for the right decision- please? Yet Parra praying for a good showing

  5. It sure looked like Heisey beat that throw to first.. would like to see that replay. Might have been the second time this season he was called out at first even while being safe.

  6. I have to say Latos. He’s just had a more consistent history, and he’s actually younger than Bailey, which seems difficult to believe.

  7. I was just about to type “does anyone else think Bruce is due?”. Right on cue, Cousin Brucie. Hope that get’s ya going.

  8. 10-0… weren’t the Washington Harpers supposed to be good or something?

  9. Geez boys….save some runs for tomorrow’s game. Better yet Sunday’s game when Cueto eats Strasburgs lunch!!!

  10. This is so awesome. Can’t they save a few of these runs for tomorrow though? Leakey might need’em!

  11. What is the arc of the team this year? We know we have youngish team that can develop. Bruce has consistently improved, Super Todd will show us he is a legit 3rd baseman ( thanks Scott). Cozart will step forward without the pressure and if Mesoraco can see the field, then this could get scary quickly. We haven’t seen Leake, but the rest of the staff looks truly studly. I heard Leake was strong in ST. Hope it only grows and thanks for reading

  12. The Nats have to be careful here (10-0) or this game might get away from them.

  13. And the legend of Todd Frazier continues. And just think, it all began when he arrived here from the planet Krypton.

  14. BTW- thank you to the SF giants for their victory over the team that shall not be named

  15. Great to see the plate discipline from Choo to take a walk even when the club is ahead 10-0. It’s like Votto, he never gives an AB away.

  16. At this rate, there won’t be any fireworks left for the FIREWORKS SHOW

      Was the spread on this game two touchdowns?

      this is ‘way beyond fun! I so wanted to put these harpers in their place. 🙂

  17. Holy Crap.

    That’s all you can say at this point. This is a special night. Hope the Nats enjoyed being last undefeated team out there.

  18. Talk about clearing the bench, the next substitutions will have to come from Louisville.

  19. The only thing left to do is to put Mike Leake in as a PH and let him go yard…

    • This would be the perfect time for the bunt.

      .. then steal second. but NO sliding.
