I missed that, I just grilled out and I'm on my deck following on GameDay. What happened?
Fp took Thames to task for standing on 2b to tag up on a Robles double off the RF wall...a No No with 1 out. He wouldve scored easily if he travelled halfway to 3b to watch it instead.
Thames booked it to make that run, Hale better watch out when the big man turns third, there's no brakes that are going to stop his momentum.
I'm a big fan of Thames wearing the big elbow pad and shin pad. For years I've been calling on the Nats to make those mandatory for our hitters. Too many guys have been hurt getting hit by inside pitches and foul tips. The Nats should wear 100% of the pads allowed by MLB, protects from injury and gives the batter confidence to stand in the box against the hard throwers.
