*Opposition grows in Virginia to migrant worker pay increase

*Strasburg strikes out 10 in Nats’ final game (I’m very much looking forward to next season for the Nationals, this is a team on the rise!)

P.S. I grew up an Orioles (AL) and Mets (NL) fan. I always rooted against the Red Sox (unless they played the Yankees, in which case it was a tough call). So, let’s just say, Miles and I are probably feeling a bit differently today about what happened last night at the hands of…yep, the Orioles. 🙂

  • Hard to get upset when the Red Sox did so much to doom their own chances. Not like they scrapped and fought and got screwed by the umps or something, THAT would be hard to swallow.

    I’m choosing to focus on Stephen Strasburg’s final 2011 numbers: 1.50 ERA, 24 Ks in 24 IPs. Could the Nats make the playoffs next year?
