The Nationals and the archaic blackout rules

For the second time this year, the Pirates are crossing into "blacked out in Chapel Hill for no discernible reason" territory as the Nationals roll into Pittsburgh. The Nats are really bad right now as they've got a ton of injuries and they've dropped four in a row and eight of nine. Maybe the Pirates are gonna hang around .500 from here on out and maybe they're not, but if they do manage to do it, it'll happen by beating teams like the Nationals. They'll start Tim Redding tonight and he's really been one of the few bright spots for the Nats this year. He's still Tim Redding, though.
