  1. I liked Boz’s column yesterday on Harper and pointing out how good he’s been down the stretch while Trout has been pedestrian over the same span.

    and an AL East one game playoff to determine who goes to the wild card one game playoff is a hell of a gauntlet to go through if it happened.

  2. As much as I hate to agree with anyone from Philly, let alone a columnist, I think he’s right. As a seamhead and a Nats fan, I don’t like that so much of the attention is focused away from what’s happening on the field. The Presidents race, the infinite t-shirt tosses, the Nat Pack (whatever the hell that is) and, worst of all, Clint are all gimmicks. I don’t know what the effect it would have on attendance if they toned down the gimmicks but I’d like to see them try it.
