Just wanted to throw this out there and let you know about a couple get-togethers I'm planning in the next week.
--First, some folks from our live chats are planning to meet up in the Red Loft on Saturday before the Nationals' 1:05 game against the Dodgers. I'll pop in around noon and hang out for a while before the game. Come say hello if you're going to be at the game.
--Secondly, I'd like to do a more extended sit-down sometime next week while the team's on the road - dinner or drinks, whatever - and pick your brains about everything from the state of the team to coverage here. I'm hoping to do this from time to time this season, just to keep an adequate pulse of the fanbase, its interests and ideas. Call it a town hall meeting of sorts - just a chance for me to interact with you, face-to-face, and get your input.
Leave your schedule for next week in the comments section, as well as where you're coming from, and we'll pick a geographically compatible place that works with everyone's schedule. Looking forward to it.
