I've been away for a few days in solitary confinement. No TV. No cell. No radio.
So today, when I was returning to town from this family dream vacation, I was a bit surprised to hear about some of the goings-on over at the The Hanger.
Mark Reynolds, it seems, got nailed in the noggin with a 95 mph fastball. Personally, I've never had this happen to me, so I am just going off-the-cuff, but that sounds less-than-fun.
One day after getting his clock cleaned, hard-ass manager extraordinaire puts Mark right back in the line-up.
Maybe he's thinking that it's best to get back on the proverbial horse quickly so young Reynolds doesn't lose his nerve?
Or maybe the lack of mustache has somehow impacted the decision-making process. I'm not really clear. Like I said, I was pretty far out-of-the-loop the last few days.
Help me out: what happened here and why (since we are on the subject) didn't a Nats player get hit in retaliation?
