The Nationals will take the field against the Chicago White Sox..."VEEP" airs Sunday night on HBO. I'll be watching neither.

Seems like only yesterday Adam Dunn was wearing a "Natinals" jersey and pleading for fans to save the baby oysters in the Bay and welcoming rookies to the Big Leagues, and sneaking up to talk to Bob Uecker in the Brewers radio booth, and, of course, hitting bombs.
