4/16/09 Nats-Phillies game thoughts

Droopy, Jamos and I were texting along during the game, but wanted to post some thoughts here for comment. Fyi today 4/17/09 my email is down for some reason.

Thoughts in no particular order;
- On tv the stadium looked absolutely empty. I chatted briefly w/ a buddy at the game last night and he said the same. Announced attendance was 20,000 and change per the box score but I think that's utter BS. It looked to me like the entire section above our seats last year in sec131 was empty. Beautiful weather, 2nd home game of the season against one of the best teams in baseball and nobody showed. I think the season ticket sales just got slaughtered and the team isn't announcing it.
- Nats can hit. Love the new lineup. NJ-Zim-Dunn-Dukes in 2,3,4,5 can hit. I still can't stand Kearns and think we should start Willingham. That'd give us 5 professional hitters 2-6. Nice.
- I like Martis. he can bring it when he wants (saw him hit 94 at one point in 1st inning) but his out pitch is a 83mph changeup. He made Ryan Howard look like an idiot in the 1st inning on 3 straight changeups.
