How the Nationals got their groove back.

July 28, 2009

At the beginning of the season adding Adam Dunn could not help.

A third of the way through the season adding Nyjer Morgan could not help.

Half way through the season firing manager Manny Acta could not help.

But now, “Hitting” Jose Morales has.

The National’s announce team has tapped up a baseball card of, former Expo, Jose Morales in the booth. This card was sent in by an anonymous fan (someone who didn’t want to be known as the guy who still knows where their baseball cards are). Bob Carpenter and Rob Dibble have even brought the card on the road with them to Milwaukee, last night. The card is seems to be the sole reason why the Nats have a 3 game winning streak or so thinks Rob Dibble. He expresses his love for Jose Morales every time the Nats get a hit by yelling “ “Hitting” Jose Morales ” over the air. So, maybe adding Jose Morales to a coaching staff might be needed. Imagine how much better the Nats would be with a real life Morales than a card board picture.

Bob Carpenter is looking for a card to improve pitching. Please look around and help out the Nats. If talent can’t help maybe old baseball cards can.

On an aside, if Josh Willingham was a Pirate he would be on his way to Boston right now after his 2 grand slam performance.
