It’s a beautiful day…

This morning my wife and I were talking about the group U2 and their ages. We were both shocked to find out they are all in their 40s and not older. They formed in 1976, apparently as teenagers. So today’s title of “It’s a beautiful day…” is not just about what happened yesterday in Nats land but as a little tribute to U2.


It may have been just a spring training game, but a walk-off home run is a walk-off home run. Roger Bernadina ended the game on Monday between the Nationals and Team Italy by hitting a three-run home run. Bernadina is taking big steps towards making the Nationals. John Lannan and Shairon Martis combined to shut Italy down for six innings. Lannan was a starter last year for the Nationals but Martis is trying to make the big club out of spring training for the first time. He was up with the Nats last year.

Along with the former Sens trying to make the Nats roster, there are also former Sens trying to make various major league rosters. I’m hoping I haven’t missed anyone, but here are the Sens that have been here sometime the past four seasons that are vying for a spot on a big league roster:

         Jhonny Nunez, Chicago White Sox, 2g 2ip

         Rich Rundles, Cleveland Indians, 2g 2ip

         Armando Galarraga, Detroit, 1g 2ip

         Jonathon Albaladejo, NY Yankees, 1g 2.2ip

         Chris Schroder, Oakland, 2g 2ip

         Jerome Williams, Oakland, 1g 1ip

         Prentice Redman, Seattle, 3 x 13

         Brandon Watson, Arizona, 4 x 9

         Josh Whitesell, Arizona, 2 x 9

         Edgar Gonzalez, San Diego, 3 x 7

As I said, I may have missed someone.

Unlike Monday, today actually makes you think spring is around the corner. From my understanding, the next few days are going to be even nicer. We have some big doings here at the ballpark that I’ll share with you tomorrow!

By the way, this is your first peak as the official release hasn’t gone out yet but our FanFest is April 4 this year and it will be held here at the ballpark. Be sure to mark that date on your calendar. There will be a lot of cool things going on that day here and you’ll have a chance to see for yourself how the construction is coming along.

Speaking of construction, I’m told that next week we should start to see things really happening. Up until this point a lot of the work that has gone on has been getting the foundation done, digging trenches etc., so things should really get moving now!

That’s it for today. Short but sweet. I’ll have more tomorrow on the game today and give you the news about our big doings.  As always, thanks for reading and talk to you soon!

I would have bet money that the U2 members were older! I’m in my 40s and I feel like I have listened to them all my life! I’ll have to go listen to a song!
