District On Deck: Morning Coffee 11/25


The Nationals lost one of their own on Sunday. Dan Haren, signed a one year, ten million dollar contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. This wan’t much of a surprise that he would be leaving D.C. He had a great end of the season, but the Nats have faith in a couple of young arms in the back end of the rotation. However long that lasts we will see.

Other than that, it was yet another slow day around the Nats and Major League Baseball itself.

The NFL did have some pretty good games, where one ended in a tie. Yes, a TIE. That doesn’t happen in baseball. That is why I like writing about baseball and following the game on a daily basis, there is always a winner, no matter how long the game takes, there is a winner at the end.

Here is a quote by Earl Weaver: “You can’t sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You’ve got to throw the ball over the damn plate and give the other man his chance. That’s why baseball is the greatest game of them all.”

I will leave you with that this morning. Just remember in the cold winter months ahead of us, that baseball is just around the corner, and we will all get to watch and cheer for our favorite sport, baseball.
