It’s almost February. Almost. Which means that baseball is just on the cusp. Rachel told you all about Nats Fest this weekend, and now there’s a prediction of an over .500 year for the Nats, based on a strong defense and low runs allowed. They’re also banking on the team scoring about 60 more runs in 2010 than in 2009, and allow about 130 less than they did.
It’s hard to say if they’re overeager about the Nats, even while the team is firming up its final spring training roster, but there’s certainly significant cause for Nats fans to be brightening up coming into the 2010 season.
Well, if you’re going to be touted, the gang at BP is the one you would want. Looks like another packed house at Politics and Prose in March, and wow, the Nats are just four games out of the wild card!
Sing it Aretha!!
