We learned recently that the Washington Nationals are going to try to keep Phillies fans from invading their ballpark during the May 4-6 series in D.C.  To do so they have limited ticket sales to that series to people from Washington, Maryland and Virginia.

The effort is kind of dumb, easily circumvented and likely will be counterproductive — if I were a Phillies fan I’d look like this right now — but that hasn’t stopped Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey’s shorts from getting all bunched up in his nether regions about it:

 

Eh, like I said. I don’t think Phillies fans are going to be all that deterred by this effort. I’m guessing that through sheer determination, spite and StubHub, Nationals Park will be full of the Philly faithful come May 4-6.

Andy Martino of SNY TV reports that the Mets “have gotten to the point of exchanging names with teams” in trade talks for closer Jeurys Familia. He says that nothing is imminent, but that we should expect a Familia trade “well before the deadline.”

Familia has 17 saves in 29 appearances, a 2.88 ERA and a 43/14 K/BB ratio over 40.2 innings this season.
