Oh and by the way, here came the Nationals. Without further ado, here are the 3 Ups (be that as it may), and the 3 Downs from this series. 3 Up: Jon Niese: Jon Niese comes in at number one for a real solid performance on Sunday afternoon.

I think it’s safe to say the Dog Days have arrived – that all-too-familiar time when one day runs into the next and it seems like no one has any energy. People get edgier this time of year, tempers shorten and frustration lengthens. If you’re a fan of the Mets, the Dog Days started just before the All-Star Game.
