Some Friday thoughts

William Yurasko notes today a USA Today item which contends that Washington is tied with Baltimore, Cleveland and Kansas City for the cheapest hot dogs in the majors at $2.50, and then he wonders, quite correctly, just where those $2.50 hot dogs are, having only seen $4 ones.

Perhaps they are an R.F.K. "urban legend" in the making, an intriguing rumor conjured up by sneaky Nationals fans to foist upon visiting fans from Philadelphia and New York and designed to frustrate them (Innocent Mets Fan: "Excuse me, I understand that there are $2.50 hot dogs here, could you please tell me where those are?" Crafty Nats Fan: "Oh, the $2.50 hot dogs? You know about those? Listen, you didn't hear it from me, but they are behind section 456, but they're only available for one half inning after the President's Race has been run, but the good news is, if Teddy wins, you can get two for the price of one!") Oh, man, temptation is a terrible thing...

Am I the only one who thinks that Mike Restovich looks like a young Albert Pujols? The guy is 6'4" and looks like he could crush a fastball out of R.F.K. I'm looking forward to seeing more at-bats from him soon. He went 2 for 2 in that 13 inning marathon the other night, both very timely, so it would appear that pressure doesn't get to him.

In all the fuss after that game, I neglected to note that it was
Levale Speigner's first major league win. Congratulations, Levale!
