This year’s second Beltway Battle (or Battle of the Beltways if you prefer) starts tonight. Here are a few media musings to get you psyched.
* Washington Post: “The Nationals will move to Baltimore on Friday, in first place by 31 / 2 games, past the business of Peralta’s pine tar and the mess that followed. They had won the game and the series because of Espinosa.” But what about Bryce Harper?
* Yahoo Sports: “The Orioles will be in for another test against the Nationals and their major league-leading 3.00 ERA.” And Bryce Harper.
* Weather: Muggy with possible storms and a strong chance of “Oh!”.
* Beltway Battle: Who ya got? Vote in our Facebook poll.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* Boz says the dog days are behind the Nats.
* Mike Wise would like to remind LeBron that he didn’t win a championship on his own.
* Another local product heads to the Olympics.
