The Nationals keep winning

The Washington Nationals finished their sweep of the Reds on Thursday night, and kept up the momentum by edging the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 last night. A single by Ryan Zimmerman in the bottom of the ninth drove in the winning run. The game that paid tribute to the Negro Leagues, as the Nats players wore Homestead Grays uniforms and the Cardinals wore St. Louis Stars uniforms. See After a slow start this year, the wunderkind from the Old Dominion is slowly but surely climbing in the batting average ranks, closing in on the .270 mark. This evening the Nats will be going for their fifth consecutive win, which would be the first time since early last August that they have done so. And I'll be there!

Unless Barry Bonds surprises us with historic home runs in PETCO Park this weekend, it looks like he will get his big opportunity to make the home fans happy in AT&T Park next week when the Giants host the Nationals!

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
