FMJRA 2.0: Joy In Mudville

— compiled by Wombat-socho It was a rare and pleasant week to be a Senators fan, for the Nats went 5-3 against the Orioles. We split a two-game series at home, then went to Baltimore and took two out of three. Jim Kaat got two of the three wins, Moe Drabowsky blew two saves to […]

FMJRA 2.0: Call Of The West

— compiled by Wombat-socho As I said last week that I would, I let the robot make the calls this week, and the robot did about as well as I would have, taking one from the Reds and another from the Red Sox. So the Senators were 2-4 this week, but I felt better about […]

FMJRA 2.0: Let The Robot Do The Suffering

— compiled by Wombat-socho Well, it’s been another miserable week at RFK; we took one out of three from Pete’s Pilots and another one of three from the Red Sox, both behind Juan Marichal. The other four games were the usual frustrating combination of blowouts and games that looked close on paper but really weren’t. […]

FMJRA 2.0: Blessed Silence

— compiled by Wombat-socho No SOTD today. Just settling for the ambient noise in the apartment today. This is one of those weeks that makes me think I ought to quit Pete’s continual draft league and just stick with wargames. Senators went 2-4 this week against the Yankees and Red Sox, with both wins being […]

FMJRA 2.0: Igneous

— compiled by Wombat-socho Going on the road was just what the Senators needed to change things up. They split a two-game series at Baltimore on Monday, and then Friday went to Anaheim where they split two with the Angels. Here’s hoping it’s a sign of things to come. Ceterum autem censeo Silicon Valley esse […]

FMJRA 2.0: Alberich

— compiled by Wombat-socho Another miserable week for the Senators; a hard-fought series against the A’s resulted in two narrow losses and a win, the latter a result of Larry Dierker pitching a complete game against Sonny Siebert for his fifth win. Unfortunately, the Reds then visited RFK and swept the series: 2-6, 3-6, and […]

FMJRA 2.0: Eternity Sunrise

— compiled by Wombat-socho Our long national nightmare is over – the Senators took two games from the New York Day Traders at RFK today, ending a miserable ten-game losing streak. Outfielder Pat Kelly, acquired from Pete’s Pilots along with southpaw Ron Bryant and a couple of draft picks for former franchise player Frank Howard, […]

FMJRA 2.0: Velvet Voyage

— compiled by Wombat-socho It was a really bad week for the Senators, who are starting to feel a lot like the Kansas City A’s in the 1950s and 60s. Many water coolers were broken, a couple of sportswriters had hot water poured on them (and much to our manager’s surprise, did not turn into […]
