DM ... thanks for doing the box score this year, it's been a very interesting view of the games this season.

For whatever reason, I'm particularly worked up this morning that Nick Johnson was left off the All-Star team (and I hate the fact that his DL stint* undercuts any serious griping). Depending upon which column one sorts by (RV or WV), Johnson is either the run-away rep for this team, or in a virtual dead-heat with (C.) Cordero.

* given his DL status, seems like naming Johnson to the team and then naming an injury replacement would have been a no-brainer gesture on LaRussa's part

I can't get that worked up over that Sec. 210. I mean, as valuable as Nick has been, Lee and Pujols are amazing first basemen, and as I stated in a prior post, I felt that Nick would be left off even if they put on a third first baseman because, while he may not be as valuable, Delgado's stats are much better than Nick's.
I was amazed just how many times Peter Gammons said last night that Jose Guillen was the biggest snub because he is by far the Nats' MVP and would probably finish 3rd in MVP voting in the NL if it was done today. I love what Jose has done, but I would say that Jose would be 4th...on the Nats! After Cordero, Nick, and Livan.

I agree with Brian. The boxscores are a great service and much appreciated.

Thanks much, guys, I'm glad to to do them. We've been lucky that it's been an interesting year to keep track, given the unorthodox ways the Nats have been winning games.

As for Nick Johnson, I have to agree with Dexys. Nick's been great, and is clearly my favorite player on the team, but he doesn't scare me the way Lee and Pujols do. Their power just pushes them a bit ahead.
