HAIR TO SPARE
When we last checked in with Danny Espinosa's huge beard, it was signing autographs for kids and spreading Holiday cheer. Update: Espinosa's beard is alive and well, judging by the the photo above in which Danny Espinosa and his girlfriend posed with Espinosa's Beard at Ryan Zimmerman's wedding a few weeks ago in D.C. Indeed, Espinosa's Beard seems poised to give...
That impressive photo of Danny Espinosa's Beard posing with Danny Espinosa and his girlfriend @SarabethMosher at Ryan Zimmerman's wedding was discussed at length during Wednesday night's edition of Intentional Talk on MLB Network. And Kevin Millar pulled a Brent Musberger in the process, and revealed that Espinosa's girlfriend went as far to block him on Twitter earlier...
LIKE HIS HEAD, BUT BIGGER
So Bryce Harper and his girlfriend Kayla Varner were at the UNLV basketball game last night, and some students brought a giant Bryce Harper head. Thankfully, Harper and Varner posed with the big head, and posted to their respective Twitter accounts. Certainly not what Davey Johnson had in mind when he jokingly said of Bryce Harper at the BBWAA meeting in New York last Saturday...

Washington Nationals — Predicted Finish: First Place, NL East
For my money, the Nationals are not only the best team in the NL East (even with the Braves’ adding Justin Upton), but in all of baseball. This is not an East Coast Bias, as I live on the West Coast and am a fan...
We could continue to bring you stories about people lying, but instead, we thought this was much more important to all of your sports viewing lives. Young Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper, got a hair cut. No more fauxhawx for this second-year player. It’s all about growing up for this guy. H/T @FranksChopShop
Washington Nationals star slugger Bryce Harper had a solid year of 2012 for himself, and it continues into 2013. At a UNLV basketball game on Thursday night, some fans had a huge cutout of his head, in which he posed for after the game along with his girlfriend, Kayla Varner:
Throughout the offseason, The Nats Blog will look back at every player’s 2012 season to summarize and analyze his performance, and we’ll look ahead to his possible role in 2013. We’ll go from #1 Steve Lombardozzi all the way to #63 Henry Rodriguez until Spring Training. Enjoy.

And so, with all the rumors and speculation swirling around who the 5th Racing President will be at Nationals Park this year, we're throwing our vote firmly behind Richard Nixon.
Unfortunately, people who know stuff and are usually right are refusing to confirm or deny our pick for us. Guess we'll just have to wait for NatsFest:

Michael Morse has been traded since last time we spoke, so we talk about that and the implications of the trade. In the second half of the podcast, we hit on the recent NL East topics, including Justin Upton to the Braves and the Mets interest in Michael Bourn, the World Baseball Classic, and Danny Espinosa's insanely great beard.
Also, we get a case of the giggles...
