Getting to know… G-G-G-Gio

Meet "The Goofball". Gio Gonzalez may be one of the most entertaining additions to the Nats this season - and he pitches well to boot! Who didn't he endear himself to with that giant grin after hitting a double? Yet, sometimes his interview responses can be filled with baseball cliches, so I was curious to see his Q&A session in the Stars & Stripes Club Saturday. Sure, his session was still full of cliches, but delivered in an endearing ... Continue Reading

Yin and Yang of Injuries

In my day job, if I were to get hit by a truck while scootering to the office, the other person on my team would likely get my "Lead" role by default. Good for him. Bad for me.

Well, Davey Johnson's postgame interview following last night's 7-6 loss to the Astros was certainly a departure from the norm we've grown accustomed to with previous managers. He didn't mince words when discussing Jordan Zimmerman's not-so-great start and wouldn't even consider the fact Jordan had been hit in the shin with the ball earlier as an excuse. Johnson used phrases such as, "Those things upset me," and "those kinds of mistakes are hard to stomach". I'm torn between liking the ... Continue Reading

Got nimble fingers? Vote Morse for ASG

Vote early and often! Voting is unlimited - you just have to keep entering the 5 digit validation code over and over. So on your lunch break, while on a conference call, you know what you have to do! Let's send Beast Mode to the All Star Game! Unsure who to pick for the AL? I've heard Orioles and Nats fans are teaming up to send both Jones and Morse on the same ballot.... Continue Reading
