Well, last night Mako Morse led the Nats to a 2-1 victory against the Padres with support from Tyler "Peaches" Clippard from the bullpen. Shark was an embarassing 0-4 and must have been moving slowly due to full stomach after eating the Swinging Friar.
Tonight, Jim Riggleman tries out a new aproach to the lineup, with The Great Werth leading off and The Shark batting 9th behind pitcher John Lannan. It doesn't matter if Bernadina hits 1st, 2nd, 9th, or wherever, he is going to make up for his showing last night by going to warp speed and taking the Padres and their pitcher Clayton Richard to deep space. With Bernadina hitting 9th, I'm naming this lineup "DEEP SHARK NINE." (We have so many ocean metaphors on this blog, I thought we should mix it up and bring in a space one...just go with it).

More to come.
