The good news about the Orioles-Nationals series this year is that there will not be a combined booth. Yay! I made my feelings known on this matter last year, and as such I am taking all credit for the change. Sure, everyone hated it, but that won't stop me.
Stephen Strasburg is pitching for the Nationals tonight, which means they will probably lose. As Alex mentioned in the series preview, Strasburg hasn't had the best results this season, but his peripherals are hard to argue with. Opposing him for the Orioles is Chris Tillman, who could be great or could be garbage. Your guess is as good as mine.
I don't really care much about the Nationals, but I would like some former Orioles fans to see what they're missing. So mess them up, O's!
