And so, while you're sitting around basking in the magical glow of Christmas wearing an ugly sweater and waiting for the Nationals to sign Prince Fielder (hey, even Gio Gonzalez was calling for it on Christmas Eve), enjoy the photo above (via Bryce Harper's Twitter) of the new chocolate lab puppy Harper got for Christmas: Befriend the Nats Enquirer on Facebook.

Gonzalez Trade A Risk for A’s, Nats

Most people agree that the Nationals and A’s matched up relatively well on the Gio Gonzalez trade.  I won’t bother debating that.  My personal feelings are that Gio Gonzalez is a solid #3 starter whose value has skyrocketed because of the lack of depth in the free agent market and the Nats paid a good, but not astronomical price for Gonzalez’s services.  Still, this trade...

Bryce Harper Named His Puppy ‘Swag’

The cute little puppy pictured above belongs to Washington Nationals super-prospect, Bryce Harper. Harper apparently got the puppy as a Christmas gift, and he shared a picture of the rascal via Twitter. Harper also said he named the chocolate lab “Swag.” The same guy who blows kisses to opposing pitchers after hitting home runs would also name his dog Swag. Such a Bryce Harper...

Poll: Which Team Won The Gio Gonzalez Trade?

Once again, the A's have traded away one of their top starters in exchange for a package of prospects.  Two weeks after shipping Trevor Cahill to Arizona, Oakland sent Gio Gonzalez and pitcher Robert Gilliam to the Nationals for right-handers A.J. Cole and Brad Peacock, left-hander Tom Milone, and catcher Derek Norris. Billy Beane & Co. parted ways with Cahill...
