Listening to the Nationals broadcast team is absolute torture. A few gems from last night. Such ridiculous homerism amped up even more now that they are actually winning.
1. Andrelton Simmons hits a single, rounds the bag and stares down Ian Desmond. Desmond doesn't like this and whips the ball towards first base. F.P. Santangelo calls this a "heads up play" by Desmond. Really? The way I see it Simmons just baited your young shortstop into whipping the ball across the infield when he had no chance at catching Simmons.
2. Uggla draws a walk and the guy says that Uggla doesn't walk much. Uggla hasn't done much this year but he is second in the NL in walks.
3. Heyward beats out a ground ball to first but is called out. Santangelo says the Nats may have caught a break there. Roger Bernadina is called out on an inside fastball from Medlan and Santangelo proceeds to lose his mind saying that missed calls like that can change a game and blah blah blah.
