Anybody Hungry?((ht: dc-sports-bog))As we sit here at the OSG Global HQ, pondering out Ham and Cheese sandwich with sweet pickles we often wonder what it would be like to not have to worry about how much we eat.That's why the Washington Nationals announcement of the "Strasburger" at Nationals Park is so scary. According to the Nats PR department, this hunka, hunka burning beef named after star pitcher Stephen Strasburg weighs in at a robust 8lbs.Yes, you read correctly. Eight pounds...or as the kid in Jerry Maguire says, the size of a human head. The burger features cuts of brisket, chuck and short ribs...and if you are still hungry afterwards, fries and a pitcher of your favorite soft drink.We're going to assume...for the sake of rational thought, that the burger is not meant to be eaten by just one person, though we suspect that they'll be plenty of people who try.No, our guess is the Nationals are hoping that anyone interested in this will bring

2012 Fantasy Baseball: Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals starting rotation preview

Stephen Strasburg (credits below) The Nationals do not necessarily have a “sleeper” of a fantasy rotation, but it definitely can be sneaky good by the time the calendar hits October.  Who will occupy the fifth rotation spot is still being determined, but one-through-four in the rotation all have value when drafted properly. Starting at the top, Stephen Strasburg will have the...

Nationals to debut eight-pound 'Strasburger'

Nothing puts the stamp on legendary potential like having a burger the size of a fat newborn baby named after you. The Washington Nationals are pulling out all the stops in driving up attendance this season from the 'Take Back the Park' campaign, the #FUphilly campaign by local radio stations, and now the 'Eat this Gigantic Burger named After Stephen Strasburg so that...

Bryce Harper shaved his beard.

Rather than get hung up on a bad spring training start by Stephen Strasburg on Wednesday night against the Braves, let's focus on more positive things. Like, Bryce Harper returning to the lineup after spending time on the shelf with a left calf strain, and handling his surprise start in CF without incident (through six innings, anyway). Why CF, Davey? "He runs good. He’s...

Nationals will be selling an eight-pound ‘Strasburger’ at home games

Since moving over from Montreal, the Washington Nationals have not had a winning season. They have come close a couple times and are improving as of late, but they still leave a lot to be desired. Nationals fans are waiting on Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper to take over the franchise, but more often than not they leave the ballpark with an empty feeling in their stomachs. This...

MLB Preview 2012: The Washington Nationals

I don’t know a lot about the Washington Nationals. That’s a relative statement of course. I know alot more than the average person about the Washington Nationals. I know that they’ve been a mediocre team since the franchise moved from Montreal, never reaching the playoffs. I know that they just signed Ryan Zimmerman to a large contract extension that seems somewhat questionable...

Nationals' Wang gets tangled up, strains hamstring

Washington Nationals pitcher Chien-Ming Wang left Thursday's start in the third inning with a strained left hamstring after colliding with Russell Martin of the New York Yankees. Wang fielded a slow roller by Martin and tried to make the play at first base. Wang stumbled toward the bag and fell as he was touching the base. The pitcher's leg went up in the air and was hit...

Tigers get to Jackson, beat Nationals

VIERA, Fla. (AP) -- Washington right-hander Edwin Jackson struggled through three-plus innings Tuesday, and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Nationals 6-3. Jackson allowed four runs, two earned, while giving up five hits, walking two and striking out two in 3 1-3 innings. The two-run homer he gave up in the first inning to Detroit's Ryan Rayburn came with two outs, one batter...

Is it over for Ivan?

As we approach the midpoint of spring training and cast a wanting eye towards opening day, it is probably fair to wonder about the status of currently unsigned free agents. One such free agent is future Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez, whose dalliances with the Mets a week or so ago proved fruitless, and thus may be pushing the legendary backstop towards retirement whether he wants...

Sounds like Bryce Harper is excited to face his boy CC and the Yankees.

Thursday and Friday will be a dream come true for Bryce Harper the Yankee fan. On Thursday, the kid will face the Yankees in Viera. On Friday, he'll reportedly travel with the Nationals to face the Yankees in Tampa: "Oh, man, that’s going to be fun. Even Pineada tomorrow. You’ve got a guy who pitched for Seattle and was great, came over to the Yankees of course...

Fantasy Baseball Owners Need to Relax With This Guy

Slugging wunderkind Bryce Harper, 19, admitted today he doubts he can make the Nationals after missing a few key games with a calf issue. “Probably not,” he said in answer to a question about whether he still has a chance to be picked to go north with the team. Then, he added, “It’s all good though.” Harper has said from the moment he got to spring camp that his goal...

One Wang Step

The Washington Nationals were counting on Chien Ming Wang to be their fifth starter this season.  Those plans may have to be scrapped after Wang was forced to leave Thursday’s game against the Yankees making an unassisted play at first base.  Pitching against his former team, Wang fielded Russell Martin’s weak grounder between the mound and

Lidge: "Is Stephen Strasburg better than Roy Halladay? No...But he throws 103."

File this one under: What Brad Lidge means when he talks about talent. Earlier this week, Brad Lidge said in a video that the Nationals were the most talented team he's ever been on. Of course, there was immediate backlash from Phillies fans: some took offense to it (check the comments here, for example), while others seemed indifferent. In any case, ESPN's...

Review: 'The Show' still swinging for the fences

No video game can duplicate the drama of the end of the 2011 Major League Baseball season. You remember: The historic collapse of the Red Sox. The Rays' late-inning recovery from a seven-run deficit on the last day of the season. The Cardinals coming back twice in game six of the World Series and eventually winning the trophy. It's still early in the 2012 season I'm...
