Willingham slams Brewers, twice

Two swings of the bat by Josh Willingham were all it took for the Washington Nationals to beat the Milwaukee Brewers last night, 13-6. How is that possible? Well, the mighty Josh connected just right in two consecutive innings with the bases loaded, and went into the history books as only the 13th player ever to hit two grand slams in the same game! The incredible feats of athletic prowess took place in the 5th and 6th innings at Miller Park. Ryan Zimmerman also got his 18th homer of the year, but Willingham is closing in on him fast. See MLB.com. (Of all the nights for me to be out of the house! frown) I sure hope they don't trade Willingham away in the next few days...

Minor diagram updates

At the request of Mike Zurawski, I made minor corrections to the PNC Park and PETCO Park diagrams. In both cases it involves the location of the LC distance marker, and for PETCO Park I actually moved the fence back a few feet based on that. Most of you will probably not even notice what changed, but for us perfectionists, it's crystal clear.

The Mets have already made an addition to Citi: a new video board in the RF corner. http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh82/fightinitalian21/IMG_5958.jpg
