Saw two amazing games on ESPN the last two nights. Last night, Ryan Zimmerman christened the brand new Nationals Park in D.C. with a walk-off home run to beat the Braves. I just finished watching the Twins beat Torii Hunter's new team, the Angels, 3-2. Joe Nathan struck out Hunter for the second out in the 9th in front of 50,000 screaming Twins fans, then finished off the Angels to save the win.

It was snowing in Minnesota today, which didn't bother Metrodome-bound Twins fans. Wonder what they'll do in two years when they open their new outdoor ballpark.

Oh, Eric Gagne blew a save for the Brewers today. Surprise! He gave up a three run, game tying bomb in the bottom of the 9th to new Japanese import Kosuke Fukudome, then got the vulture win as Milwaukee scored a run in the 10th and held on to beat the Cubs. I hope the Brewers haven't made a huge mistake installing this guy as their closer.

Nationals Park looks really great, with a view of the Capitol dome from the seats. I would love to do a Camden Yards/Nationals Park trip someday, maybe adding in one of the Maryland minor league teams (the Bowie Baysox, Frederick Keys and Cal Ripken's Aberdeen IronBirds are all good possibilities).
