The Shark had a good game, going 1-3 with and RBI and an awesome sliding catch (highly sharkadelic). He also contributed an important walk, which helped set up the dramatics in the 9th. Prior to his single, the Nats had done nothing against Fister (no nickname needed). He extended his hit streak to 7 games and raised his batting average slightly, up to .282. Bernadina is on fire and he's showing no signs of slowing. He's feeding off the power that "the Shark" nickname provides and he is rapidly becoming a Nationals Fan Favorite (he already these fans' favorite).
Bernadina further emphasized the fact that he is serious about winning, by recently posting:
|I hope you are taking note Bill Ladson|
The people at CenterfieldGate wrote a good article about the underappreciated Bernadina. The consensus is: the Shark is awesome and should get more credit.
Tomorrow is going to be an awesome night for baseball. There will be 10 shark-clad Sharkadinas in the right field corner (Tyler knows the exact section) rooting for the Shark to the point of hysteria. (At least I will. I can't speak for the rest of them...but I hope they honor the shark admirably...) I am hoping that the usually-small-Wednesday-night-game-turnout, coupled with the Swarm of 10 Shark fans, our relatively close seats, and a new sign (or several), will get us on MASN. I intend to be loud enough that even if they don't talk about us on MASN, you'll be able to tell that the Shark has a huge fan base. If you are there tomorrow, find us, say, "hi" and as always, cheer like hell for the Shark.
More to come.
