It's so strange. The Nationals came to town for two games this week. My brother, the turncoat Washington fan who sometimes haunts Loge13 under the moniker NatKiller, had very little to say before his boys arrived in Queens.
I also didn't hear from NatKiller during the week, when the Mets swept his desultory DC'ers.
Not that the Nats put up much of a fight. They scored a grand total of ZERO runs during their trip up north. Now I'm no good at math. Let me add up those figures again.
Yup the Nationals scored no runs in Queens.
They also almost got no hits yesterday, as the brilliant Dillon Gee kept the Nats off balance during his shutout victory.
With that victory, the Mets left the Nationals behind in last place, most likely for good.
And yet still no word from NatKiller. I hope he's OK.
