Custom Card of the Middle of the Night: Rendon Edition
Well, now that I'm trying to post more, write better, and make the overall blog content a little more crisp, I guess the first step is to stay on top of big baseball stories. And right now, the Washington Nationals are a pretty big baseball story.
Right now they're way out front in the NL East, have one of the strongest infields in baseball (LaRoche-Rendon-Desmond-Cabrera is as nice as it gets), and, yes, are the best team in the National League.
Going into the All-Star break, Anthony Rendon was cited as one of the larger snubs of the roster, because he'd had a great defensive start, and also he was one of the better younger players that the Nats had in their roster (nice try, Harper). Now he's at the forefront, sort of, of one of the best teams in baseball, in his sophomore year. How about that.
Do I want this to go on? Well, it's better than one alternative (The Braves suddenly getting really good and slaying everybody out of absolutely nowhere), but not as good as another alternative (the Phillies going on a gigantic winning streak). Still, it's a good story for a good team, so I'll stick with it.
Coming Today (?)- Might end up posting a football custom. Expect it to be a quarterback.
