The Orioles could be in 1st place by the end of the night. Crazy
They're completely out-performing their run differential, too. They're the luckiest team in recent memory.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

So... I wonder if all the Orioles fans who jumped over and became Nationals fans want to be Orioles fans again?

I'm sure both teams picked up some Phillies fans too.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I saw a bunch of kids that had on Nationals jerseys at Camden. A couple of ushers were jokingly giving them a hard time.

In other news, DC is already planning security for a world series parade.

Well, the Redskins game on the Sunday before the election is usually a good clue who will be President. How does this apply to the Nationals? If they make the World Series, it could get awful close to Election Day.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I have been in DC all this week and while it's exciting to watch the Nats finally kick some ass...it's been against the Cubs, who hardly put up much of a fight. So these games have all been very one-sided. Plus, I swear that the horn that goes off when a Nat hits a home run is loud enough to shatter car windows.

One thing though, what the hell is this with the crowd spontaneously singing "Take On Me"? They've been doing that every bleedin' night...

That's Michael Morse's walk up tune. Apparently they do it all the time.

I always thought it unprofessional when home team staffs give the opposing teams fans a hard time on any level. Especially children.

^ That happened to me at Citizens Bank Park this spring. Phillies fans and ballpark workers both treated me like dogshit - for the crime of wearing non-Philly gear.

The Nats seemed to be using different songs every time last night (except for Ian Desmond). At one point Jayson Werth - side note, I don't fucking care if the bases were loaded, the count was 3-0, and the Nats had a 7-2 lead, Werth had every right to swing, and Jamie Quirk is a jackass - came to bat and the song was basically "WOOOOO!"

Chipper got booed during his appreciation ceremony at Citi Field. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

We've been hating this guy for 15 years, you think that's about to change just because he's retiring?

He's in Reggie Miller territory at this point as far as NY sports villains. Great player with one team his whole career, seems like an upstanding guy off the field, and takes a perverse joy in destroying your team in big spots.

I remember when there was the rivalry (lopsided as it was) with the Braves around 2000. I swear he got a hit every time he came up.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

As a life long Mets fan, I never boo anyone. I personally think it is classless to do so. I especially hate when they boo their own players. However for Chipper, I like the Larry chant. It's not as obnoxious as booing but still shows the respect to a player who has killed your team for what seams like forever.

I for one will miss Chipper, wish him well on his retirment. I hope the Braves can do something in the playoffs for him.

Yeah, I view it the same way. He's a hall of famer, but that doesn't mean we can't heckle him.

^Exactly, if he was a journeyman utility infielder with a lifetime average of .237 and managed to eek out a career for himself, we wouldn't care enough to boo.
