Today’s Lesson is: decision making.
It was quite a busy and buzz-worthy news day on this Wednesday in the District. First we lost the streetcars proposed for H Street, then we got them back. Oh … and then there was that time the Nationals sold tons of tickets for their June 4 contest vs the Cinncinatti Reds because everyone took it upon themselves to guess that the young phenom Stephen Strasburg would be making his Major League debut that day. This happened all while the Nationals organization never once announced anything on the subject.
Here’s the biggest difference in today’s decision making by the major players in Wednesday’s local daily news:
Vincent Gray, although he flip flopped, informed the public once he made a decision.
The Washington Nationals organization, on the other hand, never said anything about Strasburg or when his first start would actually be until today with the acknowledgement of there being a “tentative plan“.
What have we learned? We don’t know when Stephen Strasburg will get his first Major League start. So calm down. Try to have some patience.
Just watch some baseball and enjoy it. After all, the team playing for the District at the moment just so happens to be a .500 ball club by MLB standards. Not too shabby.
That and DC politics get really confusing really fast.
