Nats Magazine Editors 1, Logic 0

Saw this poster for the Nationals Magazine walking around the stadium Friday:


Before mysteriously appearing on the disabled list with a case of "suck", here were Jason "Game Changer" Marquis' season totals:
  • Three games started
  • Three games lost
  • A whopping 8.1 innings pitched
  • 18 hits allowed
  • 19 ERs allowed
That all adds up to a tidy 20.52 ERA, 2.88 WHIP and .439 BAA.

"Sidelined with a case of 'suck'". Okay, Teej, you got me with that one. Uncle.

Is anyone watching the Mavs-Spurs series with any interest. I caught game four and the TNT staff were excited about the "playoff game intensity". This game didn't even resemble basketball to me. It transformed into "How much control can the refs maintain over this game." Seems like they had to whistle everything or someone was going to get suplexed.

Dave said...

technically, those statistics are game changing.

TJ said...

Dave, you are correct. If your team's goal is to lose the game by the third inning, than Jason Marquis is change you can believe in.

You could make an argument that the Nationals team goal is to lose games by the 3rd inning. In fact, it would be rather easy to prove.

The Nats are 10-9, good for second place and a game and a half back in the NL East at this early juncture. That's a very best case scenario right there.

And then you see the Baltimore Orioles. Heh heh.

Jerry said...

I thought that 2nd half of the Mavs-Spurs game was awesome.

rob said...

i particularly liked najera's 'fast break'-style goon turn

TJ said...

Former Nat Mike Bacsik was not a fan of Najera's heel turn:

Pull Varly, play Theodore. Do it now.

TJ said...

Halak is a brick wall.

Jerry said...

Teejay - do you feel like you have a new perspective on this Caps broadcast after seeing "Behind the Lens"?

TJ said...

I really do...much like I have a muuuuch better grasp of International Gladiators now.

Jerry said...

From the UK...WOLF!

I've never seen anything like that "diving" call against Montreal.

TJ said...

The German gladiator wearing the half-shirt was badass.

Some good stuff in here.

Jerry said...

Caps can't find a Halak-smith.

rob said...

that's so awful it made me laugh

rob said...

caps are gonna fuck this up, aren't they?

Jerry said...

3 diving calls is absurd.

TJ said...

Good lord man. They're never gonna score.

Jerry said...

Looks like the dream is over for Buffalo. I'm going to need a new team to support.

Shlara said...

WTF is wrong with the Caps?? They are imploding. I can't handle this.

Shlara said...

Dammit.
And its crazy loud in there...

rob said...

room on the b-wagon, jerry

rob said...

meanwhile, nobody wants to play defense in nashville - 4-3 hawks after one period.

rob said...

really enjoying the run prevention era in boston. someone shoulda told josh beckett about the new strategy.

Shlara said...

Boudreau looks and sounds defeated in the post-game press conference. This is not a good sign for Game 7. The fact that they couldn't score with the 5 on 3 power play is also not good.

But I still believe...

...that children are our future? Teach them well and let them lead the way?

Nats went old school last night, losing on a walk off walk.

Igor said...

Yeah -- those of you who were bemoaning the Nats' suckiness in the 10-9 start had better heed the wisdom of Randy Bachman and Fred Turner.

TJ said...

And Jerry Overdrive.
