White Flag Day!

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Today, the Nationals officially decided to punt the rest of the season. They traded Daniel Murphy and Matt Adams and raised the white flag over Nationals Park.

I’m sorry, I just spent the last 10 minutes watching a happy parade process in my head while every great Sousa march played and I danced around. God it’s great.

Lineup!

Is Justin Bour still alive? Where the hell is he? You know what? Pretend I didn’t ask. I just want the Phillies to start hitting again. Hopefully this does it. If not, then seriously, where is Justin Bour?!
