Natstown?

Red Sox Nation, Yankees Universe, Rays Republic . . . the Nats are content to go with something more modest.

Eh. What about an “Army?”  Worked for Kiss, so you think it would work for a baseball team.

Sorry to be sticking with this subject today, but I don’t have to report
for Death Panel duty until the bill is signed so I’m trying to find something to kill some time.

Brandon Crawford homers off brother-in-law Gerrit Cole

You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.

The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.

Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
