Nats hope to survive last week of season

It is not all fun and games for the Nationals of late. While they did win their recent series with the Mets and party down at Jay-Z’s 40-40 club with some of the leading ladies of the D.C. blogosphere, they have had a few bumps in the road. The biggest bump is the season ending injury (The Wash. Times) to 1B Nick Johnson. He had his femur (i.e. thigh bone) broken in a collision with RF Austin Kearns on Saturday. Pitching coach Randy St. Claire also had a rough trip, ending up in the hospital with pneumonia (The Post). Not surprisingly, there are problems with the ballpark parking lots too. In addition to all of that, the team’s chartered train derailed (WTOP) last night near Wilmington. There were no injuries and they were able to get on a different train, but it delayed their arrival at Union State until 5 a.m.

Now back for some home cooking, the Nats have their final six games of the year, starting with the Phillies tonight, followed by the Mets this weekend to close out season #2.

Oh and about those parking lots — whenever someone says something is “dead” re: Nats ballpark I don’t get too worried anymore. The way this thing has gone, everything seems to get worked out at the last minute.
