George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt partook in Cupid's Undie Run on Saturday in Washington, D.C.No, not really. It was actually more like the Washington Nationals' mascots, who also happen to be former United States presidents.The race consist of a "mile-ish" run in honor of Valentine's Day weekend and contestants are urged to wear bedroom-attire. Proceeds from the race go toward supporting The Children's Tumor Foundation.The polarizing political figures also participated in last year's race and seem to draw plenty of attention. Yeah, I believe seeing some of America's heroes dressed down to their underoos would turn a few heads.Via MLB Cut 4

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:

Christian Garcia is the type of player that you want to see succeed, because he has a story. He’s had Tommy John surgery twice, which is a nail in the coffin for most pitches, but he’s shown some success following his second surgery.
Garcia was called up to the big club in September with Zach Duke, and he is being groomed as a starter for the Nats now after a great September...
The 2012 Washington Nationals season ended in about the worst way possible, but that’s all over starting today. The 2013 season is finally underway. 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.
Earlier on Monday, Olney Tweeted that Strasburg traveled to, but missed, Jordan Zimmermann's wedding...

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...
The Washington Nationals have signed veteran relief pitcher Will Ohman to a minor league contract. The 35-year-old left hander will also receive an invitation to Spring Training.
Ohman spent the 2012 season with the Chicago White Sox but struggled to the tune of a 6.41 ERA in 32 appearances.
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...
