If you like good pitching match-ups, you could do worse than Stephen Strasburg vs. Cliff Lee on a Friday night in Philadelphia. The Phillies enter the night 13-13, with Chase Utley playing at an MVP level. The Nationals are trying to win their third straight and fifth of six.
From the Bog: Remember when James Wagner wrote about Matt Williams’ impression of Babe Ruth? The manager tells F.P. Santangelo that he’ll re-create it — if the Nats win 10 straight.
