Found July 18, 2013 on Nationals Enquirer:
Definitely worth noting: The 1st Annual Gio Gonzalez Foundation Baseball Camp for kids and VIP luncheon will take place on August 8th at Shirley Povich field in Bethesda in conjunction with Bethesda Big Train. Go here for Camp and VIP luncheon tickets. Proceeds go to the Gio Gonzalez Foundation, which provides support and funding to children and families in need of medical assistance. Andrew Lang of All Stars Plus sports marketing was involved with teaming up Gio with Bethesda Big Train for the camp. Lang described the partnership between Gio and Big Train for the camp as a win-win: ("Whenever you start with a person like Gio, it's going to be a win-win even if you did a car wash!"). More from Lang on the spirit of the event and the charities involved: "A primary goal here that everyone involved agreed on was to take the majority of the camp's spots and reserve them for other charities at no-cost -- specifically charities that work with children in need. ...

Yasiel Puig Nails Bryce Harper With Throw From Right Field, But Umpire Disagrees (Video)

This is just too much phenom for one video. During Friday’s Dodgers-Nationals game, Bryce Harper led off the second inning with a double. Jayson Werth then followed with a deep flyout to right field, and Harper, being the super-aggressive player that he is, tagged up and headed to third. But the man on the receiving end of that fly ball was Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig, who unleashed...

Bud Selig Says Olympic Break “Isn’t Possible”

Will the Washington Nationals  Bryce Harper or the Los Angeles Dodgers Yasiel Puig get their shot at Olympic glory? Probably not says MLB commissioner Bud Selig. Baseball was voted out of the 2012 Summer Olympics by the IOC (International Olympic Committee) in 2005. If the sport returns in 2020 as petitioned, Americans will have little interest. Selig said Tuesday there would...

Drunk blog continues

I have no idea what happened in the Yankiverse yesterday. None. Maybe Cashman stole Bryce Harper from the Nationals, or A-Rod has been promoted to Columbus. It's like being in outer space. I'm cut off. The Duke showed up last night, a day ahead of schedule. He came early because the Redsocks are in first. Smug SOB. Wore a brand new Redsock hat. I'm talking brand new....
