  • Not bad, Nats

    Baseball, being as unpredictable as summer rain or Sen. Lindsey Graham, the Washington Nationals have won 55 and lost 69 through three quarters of the 2007 season. This qualifies the Nats for last place in the N.L. East, but only barely. Manager Manny Acta's squad still has a chance to overtake the fourth-place Florida Marlins. This gives the Nats a certain respectable mediocrity, and that's a pleasant surprise.

  • Acta prepares to go without Young's bat

    PHILADELPHIA — Manny Acta has been saying all season how lost the Washington Nationals would have been this season without Dmitri Young.
