The headline "Stadium less than half-full for Game 2 at Nationals Park" tries to make it sound like the Nats' new home is some kind of flop, but here's the tale of the tape:
Opponent: The Florida Marlins, perhaps the most faceless team since the post-trade 1993 Padres;
Game time weather: a generously-reported 50 degrees, following a day of rain;
Competition: NCAA Men's basketball Final
Don't the Nats get a little benefit of the doubt?
UPDATE: They don't, at least not from Chris Needham. I've learned, however, that Needham knows more about Washington baseball than anyone, so maybe I need to rethink my soft touch on this issue. There's some interesting analysis from Chris and Pete Toms in the comments below, by the way, so feel free to click through and check it out.
