A Map of the Nats Fan Base

I thought that this article was pretty interesting. I know that we have a lot of work to do as a fanbase to grow and support the Nats. Right now, I've been less connected to the Nats due to a poor Opening Day experience with long lines and bad baseball. I've been supporting the Harrisburg Senators instead.

Don't hit Bam Bam in the head!!!!

Never thought a baseball player could get CTE but apparently it is possible. If the Phillies aim a ball at Bam Bam's head, Matt Williams better do everything within his legal power to get even.

What To Watch For: Eastern League Championship Series

Paul Meinhart of the blog "Mayflies & Big Flies" previews the Eastern League Championship Series between the Harrisburg Senators (Nationals) and Trenton Thunder (Yankees). I have tickets for games 4 and 5 in Harrisburg. Depending on how things go at the office, I may be able to make it to game 3.

Rascal's Birthday, and My Last Senators Game of the Year

Today I attended my sixth and final Harrisburg Senators game of the season. The game, against the Portland Sea Dogs, also happened to be the birthday of Rascal, the team's mascot, and there were more mascots (to help Rascal celebrate) and a post-game "run the bases" for kids. Rather than recap the experience, because it was very much like the other games I've attended this season, check out my Facebook photo album which has some thoughts on the game and the post-game fun.

Biogenesis Implications

A Q&A conversation about the implications of the Biogenesis scandal for Gio Gonzalez, Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and the MLB as a whole. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

NPR: "Did America's Pastime Originate In England?"

Did the Prince of Wales play a baseball game in Surrey in 1749? NPR's Linda Wertheimer talks about the evidence. What was played was called "base-ball," but it only resembled the game we know in passing. For more, see this BBC News article from June.

Help JFK's Quote of the Day:

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK
