Nationals Baseball: Series Game Calls

Series Game Calls

No series preview (there will be one for the Braves) and super busy in general BUT since I nailed the sweep and the exact games won and lost last series figured I should keep doing it.

Game 1 - Jake Peavy is no slouch and after spending his late 20s on and off the DL, he seems healthy and the same great pitcher as before, maybe a bit better control to compensate for the decrease in strikeouts that come with age. Nats should have trouble hitting Peavy. But same goes for the White Sox and Gio. Sure they are going to be completely RH, but Gio faces a lot of those guys. They aren't a particularly patient team so Gio should have no trouble keeping them off-balance.  I like the Nats in a low-scoring squeaker

Game 2 - Is ZNN better than Floyd? Yes. But dammit if I didn't like the way ZNN looked last time and Floyd can pitch allright, and so going with the White Sox to take this game as the Nats bats stay silent and the worries get louder.

Game 3 -  Just when the Nats fans are about to go off on the offense it explodes.  Haren doesn't pitch all that well but against an opponent he saw last year is able to hold them down to like 4 runs or something. Meanwhile the Nats bash AAAAxelrod. Big win and big relief heading into series v Atlanta.

Let's see.

Calling a sweep. Hopefully the bats get going tonight because I'll be there. If Gio can hit a homer with a "headache", maybe he'll go yard twice tonight.. not

We desperately need a sweep or the Braves are going to run away with it. They're playing the Marlins.

(I know I'm overreacting, but that's how it feels emotionally. World Series expectations really makes this excruciating.)

I don't think we desperately need anything -- not in April.
I'm watching for the hitters to get their swing, LaRoche last night, and probably most importantly, if Haren can through out something close to a quality start on Thursday.

Looks like you got your Haren and Gio starts mixed up.

The bats are hot. I was at the game last night and the Harper HR was amazing. I think the NATS sweep.

It's very straightforward to find out any topic on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this web site.

I have been browsing online more than three hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
