I picked a hell of a boring game to have to write something about. The big story, I suppose, is that the Dodgers, who entered the game 10th in the NL in dinger production, cranked four homers in supposedly dinger-proof RFK. It's not much of a story, but at least it makes Jose "One Homer at RFK" Guillen look pretty bad. Remember back in June when we couldn't lose at home? The Nats would score maybe three runs, Chad Cordero would let three guys get on base and still get the save, and it was all very routine and predictable? Last night's game was the photo negative version. The Dodgers got out to an early lead, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one who thought, "Well, that's the end of that. And hey, the Law and Order where the Falun Gong lady incinerates herself is on!" Guillen stranded three more men on base and the Nats scored four runs just so this would be another of those significant one-run losses. Ho-hum. The point? There isn't one, but wasn't June fun?
