And so, Gio Gonzalez continued his full-on embrace of all things Washington DC sports over the weekend, posing with (and endorsing) Rex Grossman at a charity bowling event in Miami Saturday night:
Love the sentiment, but it would seem NatGio thinks Rex is the answer at QB? (pssst...Gio, there's a good chance Rex won't be around here much longer...)

One of my favorite books of the year, Baseball America's Prospect Handbook, came out earlier this week. In my opinion, it's one of the most valuable books for a baseball fan to own each year because it gives you not just the skinny on not just he up-and-comers from around the league, but it also provides an unbiased view of the prospects of the team you care about most.
Back on January 16, Stephen Strasburg Tweeted news of a near-miss first hole in one, missing the cup by mere inches. The next day, Washington Nationals' 2011 third round pick Matt Purke was out fine-tuning his golf game:

Stephen Strasburg's 2nd annual 5K took place Saturday on the San Diego State campus.

One by one preseason college baseball polls are being released, and the Owls' bandwagon appears to...
Yesterday, the Nationals announced that they have signed Brad Lidge, one of the heroes of the Phils’ 2008 World Series Championship team, to a one-year deal worth $1 million dollars, plus incentives. Lidge, who had joined the Phils in an off-season trade with the Houston Astros in 2007, went 48 for 48 in save opportunities during the 2008 regular and post-seasons, before striking...
The Washington Nationals have never had exactly what they wanted at first base since they arrived in DC. Nick Johnson was perpetually injured, Dmitri Young had a single incredible bounce back year, and Adam Dunn was a left fielder until the Nats made him go to first base to make room for Josh Willingham. Dunn was also terrible defensively. Michael Morse did a great job there...
Hey look, it’s the owner of one of the most prized and scrutinized and valuable arms in Washington, plus the Redskins starting quarterback.
