Old friend Livan Hernandez pitched 8 solid innings against his former team and knocked in a run to lead the Nats to victory over the Mets.  Their record now stands at 11-14.  The bottom of the Nats’ order killed the Mets in this game, as Ian Desmond, Jerry Hairston Jr., and Hernandez (the 6th, 7th, and 9th hitters – none hitting over .220) drove in a run each.

Nice catch, but not enough for the win

The first major free agent domino fell on Sunday afternoon as Jayson Werth and the Washington Nationals (?) agreed to a seven-year, $126 million contract ($18 million per season). Mr. Werth has never driven in 100 RBIs nor hit over .300 during his career. In fact, he has only topped 30 HRs once (2009). But hey, the dude got paid. Can’t be mad at him.

$126 Million For the Wolfman? Really?
