as well as a huge coke bottle which has a slide inside.
There is also a mini ballpark
and a cable car in the stadium.
Strasburg has been doing realy awesome but the big news is that the Nationals want to shut him down for the season after just a couple more starts. I know he had surgery last year and they are trying to play it safe with him but this is crazy! I mean, the Nats are in first place for the first time ever and they want to shut down their best player? And he wouldn’t play in the playoffs either? Insane! I know it isn’t a fair comparison but I’m sure that I throw over 100 pitches a day in my backyard and my arm isn’t even sore. And he can’t throw 100 pitches every fifth day without risking injury? Seems nutty. Anyway, as for the game, the Nats got to Lincecum early with two runs in the first inning
and then a two run home run by Espinoza in the third inning and cruised to a 6-4 victory.
It’s sad to me to see Lincecum do so bad this year after he has been unhittable for as long as I have been followng baseball. He now has a 5-13 record. How does that happen? My Dad says that he must be pitching hurt so at least that would explain it. How else do you lose your talent like that?
The game got exciting towards the end
as Adam Laroche dropped an easy popup to first base and Buster Posey came up with a chance to tie the game with a homer, but he struck out. The game was overshadowed by bigger news that day; the Giants’ star hitter and one of my favorite players, Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games for taking steroids. Not you too Melky! My heart sank when I heard the news in the first inning. He wasnt a power hitter so why did he do it. Why does anybody do it? It’s cheating plus it ruins your body. I will never understand it.
Willie Mays never used steroids!
