Ryan Zimmerman, DC GOAT

Ryan Zimmerman, who just became the franchise leader of home runs hit a few weeks ago,  has been in DC for as long as I (and most people) can remember.

Baseball is Boring, They Said.

Before we get to the “action” we have to acknowledge that Tanner Roark pitched seven shut out innings, the Nationals bullpen showed some grit, including Shawn Kelley pitching out of a bases loaded 8th and Koda Glover with his nasty slider.

My Favorite View

“I believe in the Church of Baseball. I’ve tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I’ve worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I learned […]
