The Shark was the lone bright spot during last nights 10-2 shellacking by the Pirates.  That and the sun.  The Pirates jumped all over Nats starter Jason Marquis, as he allowed 7 runs (6 earned) in 1.1 innings and the Nats couldn't recover.  The Shark went 2 for 5 with a double to creep his batting average back up to .264 (his OBP is still a healthy .326) and had a JAWSOME CATCH to rob Andrew McCutchen.  Bernadina also had a nice pregame interview with Johnny Holliday about the Shark cementing himself in the leadoff spot.  No mention of the Shark nickname, unfortunately (you gotta use it in an interview sometime, Roger!), but the interview definitely worth watching it, nonetheless.

The Chicago Cubs are next for the Nationals and the Shark.  A 1PM Fourth of July matinee kicks off the four game series.  Sharks have been known to attack Cubs when they infringe on their territory (which is exactly what will happen).  If the Shark were playing the Chicago Bears, there might be something to worry about...  Since it is the Cubs, the Shark is going to ride the wave to a delicious meal...

Bernadina respectfully feeds his family first...
More to come.

  1. We think The Shark should change his intro music to the theme from JAWS...thump, thump, thump, thump...
