Two games into the 2013 season, and we have the early leader for quote of the year. Gio in his postgame interview on MASN, fielding a question from Bob Carpenter about getting a feel for the ball on a cold night: Carpenter: "How were you feeling with the hook on a night when it's tough to have a touch pitch like that?"Gio: "It was definitely difficult, especially with this cold weather. It was tough to get a grip. It felt like I was making love to my hand." Oh, and on his first inning headache? Think sledgehammers:"My head started feeling like it was getting nailed right in there with frigging sledgehammers." (Screencap via MASN/TV) Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook. Follow on Twitter.
