Harper punishes the ball out to the cheap seats in his first two at bats. Strasburg retired 19 in a row in a shutout. Makes you wonder if the No.1 picks are trying to one-up each other.

If they keep this up, those lofty preseason predictions may just come true.

Damn it's a good time to be a Washingtonian. I plan on hopping on the Metro after work and catching at least 15 games this year.

Went to my first game on Tuesday. Two things happened that I absolutely love as far as being a fan goes (3 if you count two-for-one Tuesdays on hotdogs and soda)
  • When Paul Konerko hit his three-run HR in the seventh, a Nats fan threw the ball back on the field! I love it! The D.C. fans are really getting behind this team and it's really encouraging to see.
  • Since Michael Morse started playing Take On Me as his walk-up music, the song has been adopted as kind of a battle cry for Nats fans, and now even after he's gone, they still play it around the 7th or 8th inning and the fans really get into it. There's nothing quite like hearing 25,000 people hitting that note simultaneously. And it beats the hell out of "Sweet Caroline" which had been our forced fan sing-along prior.


D.C. loves the Nats, and where in years past you could tell the front office was really trying to start crappy traditions (like the still gawd-awful "Wave Your Hats" they're still trying to make happen and a few poor saps join in every 3rd inning), work up the crowd, start chants, etc. Now it's starting to happen on it's own and the fan base is starting to develop its own personality and flavor.

Awesome video. It's amazing how a good "walk-up" song can energize a crowd. As a Braves fan, there was nothing better than hearing "Allllll Aboard, hahahahahah" ringing through the speakers when Chipper came up to the plate.

And the third sign that we have a franchise that's an emerging threat: Pointless hate from large market fans, and smack talk on the Interwebs.

Love it!

They scared that the new kid on the block is now a threat to their comfortable spot at the top.

Fun pitching duel, super sweet ending.  Hope you enjoyed it, eventually I'll get down to Atlanta for a game.

I'm looking for an MLB team to root for and I'm thinking these guys may be it. I really wish that Carolina would get a team though.
