FMJRA 2.0: A Winning Week

— compiled by Wombat-socho My Senators had a good week last week, taking two of three from the Atlanta Bananas and surprisingly enough, two out of three from Pete’s Brewers. We’re 22-28, tied with the Twins for last place in the division and eleven games in back of the Brewers. We’re scheduled to play the […]

FMJRA 2.0: No Satisfaction

— compiled by Wombat-socho Another bad week for Senators fans, though marginally better than last week. It started well with two wins and a loss against the Tribe at the Mistake by the Lake, but then we came home expecting to sweep Dom’s Reales con Queso only to get shut down by Roger Nelson in […]

FMJRA 2.0: No Joy In The North

— compiled by Wombat-socho What a wretched week this was for the Senators. First we got swept by the Twins, and then lost two out of three at Montreal, where at least we weren’t freezing since this year’s Expos have moved into Olympic Stadium. Next week, we have a three-game series against the Tribe and […]

FMJRA 2.0: Home For Tax Day

— compiled by Wombat-socho This tax season has been odd for a number of reasons: I did not expect to be left in Tonopah for the last couple of weeks of the season instead of being called up to Reno, and I did not expect to be working on the day after the tax filing […]

FMJRA 2.0: A Winning Week

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD Much to my surprise, my Senators went to Philadelphia and swept the Phillies, but then went down to Baltimore and lost two of three. Well, 4-2 is better than nothing. Still, we’re tied with the Twins at the bottom of our division with an 11-16 record 7 1/2 games behind […]

FMJRA 2.0: Adrift Somewhere In The Anacostia River

— compiled by Wombat-socho What an awful week this was. The Reds took two out of three at RFK, and then we went to Fenway and lost two out of three to the Red Sox. Most of the games have been close, but a close loss is still a loss. While I’m not quite to […]

FMJRA 2.0: Gloom, Despair, Etc.

— compiled by Wombat-socho SOTD The Senators haven’t had a week this bad since the 1971 season, and I hope we don’t have another one like this soon. First we got swept by the Angels in our home opener, and then we went to New York and lost two out of three to the Hated […]

FMJRA 2.0: Opening Day & Other Disasters

— compiled by Wombat-socho “Ever seen that guy in the street carrying a sign that says THE END IS NEAR? Chances are he’s a PhilliesSenators fan.” – Bill James, THIS TIME LET’S NOT EAT THE BONES, slightly modified Actually, our opening series against Dom’s Royals at KC went well – we won two games in […]
