Well, you can check the box next to "Gio Gonzalez arrives at Nationals camp and denies he ever used PEDs." Indeed, a "Shocked", "stunned", and "very confident" Gio arrived on Tuesday morning and faced the music from reporters.
More from Gio on Biogenesis, via ESPN.com's Jayson Stark:
"There is no connection, [except] for the fact that … my father already
admitted that he was a patient there, a legitimate patient. And then after that, you know how my father is. … All of South
Florida, all of baseball knows that my father is the most proud father

Pitchers and catchers are required to report to the Washington Nationals Spring Training facility in Viera, Florida by today, though many like Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, and Zach Duke have already reported.
Here's video of Stephen Strasburg talking to ESPN's Buster Olney about going into 2013 with no innings limit and his desire to be a workhorse in the rotation. [Link to video here, also]. Sounds like Stras was all smiles and happy and ready to move on in Viera today.

Henry Rodriguez is the ultimate “pitcher with potential.” He has potential because he can hit triple-digits on the radar gun with his fastball on command. The problem: he rarely knows where it’s going. His only truly decent season was...

It’ll be interesting to see what he can do for an encore.Contributing to Desmond’s breakout from borderline...

Currently the Nationals have no left handers who appear certain to be on their Opening Day...
See if you can spot Bryce in the newest UA commercial. The post Bryce Harper for Under Armour appeared first on Nationals Outsider.
When the St. Louis Cardinals knocked off the heavily-favored Washington Nationals in the 2012 MLB National League Division Series, it made sense that some fans would be upset. After all, no team can be loved by 100% of baseball fans, not even the classier and more intelligent Cardinals, who are more realistically loved by 98% of fans. But it seems that some Nationals fans have indeed...
