The Nationals and Orioles play tonight in the final interleague series of the year. When the O's first played the Nats this year in DC, they were 21-21 and trying to keep contention buzz alive. Since then they have gone 12-18 and now sit at the bottom of the NL East. They have even more buzz, though, thanks to Stephen Strasburg (who will not be appearing in this series).
As I mentioned in today's Bird Droppings, I am in the press box for this game and will be commenting in this gamethread for the duration. Hopefully we'll be able to have some fun with it and I can offer some observations not available to me when I'm watching at home on TV.
