All-Baseball

It looks like MLB's agreement with Bowden ends in April. But, to the inevitable disappointment to many other Nats bloggers, Tavares is working hard to get MLB's permission to sign Bowden through the end of the season. It's likely he will keep the job for at least that long, anyway, even without a contract.

In meta-news, All-Baseball is going to merge into Most Valuable Network. The courtship was, apparently, incredibly brief. It does have an impact on me... I've got a choice to make as to what I want to do, and I haven't made it yet. I'll give more insight *after* I figure out what I want to do!

Whatever decision you make, John, I'll read your blog nonetheless. Seems unspecific as to the extent of integration of A-B and MVN; I prefer A-B's style and design much more, but styles and design change.

See the article in today's Post, Metro section, talking about how the Nats and Metro have yet to finish arrangements to keep Metro open after midnight on night games?

Darn Baseball Toaster, screwing up everything. I'm curious to see how much of a merger it really becomes.

Good luck whatever you decide and I, too, will keep reading either way.

Was surprised to see mlb.com report that the Nats sold around 50,000 tix in the first 6 hours yesterday. Anyone have a clue if this is good, bad, or indifferent? I for one, would have expected a good deal higher sales. Also interesting in the article that 87% of the sales were on line, with the rest split pretty even between phone and RFK. No comment there, just interesting.

Again, John, grat blog so far, and good luck as the season unfolds.

Sam, I was a little surprised at the 50,000 ticket sale number as well, but that could have been a force/load issue. I have not seen any figures on the half-season packages.

That said, I think the team will draw well over 2 million this year, quite possibly 3 million (37,000 a game) if the weather in July/August is not dreadful. Either way, the Nats will outdraw the O's.
