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 on New Year's Eve in Wisconsin:
Note to Nationals marketing staff: cancel that idea of all you can eat white chicken chili night at Nationals Park this year. Interestingly, @stras37 himself Tweeted this zen-like photo of a river on New Year's Eve
on location prior to the wedding. According to
a person who knows stuff, it was so bad Strasburg had to be checked into the ER, and Stras even delayed his flight home to San Diego by a day.

"There is no connection, [except] for the...
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 Washington Nationals are among that teams that are
keeping tabs on free agent right-hander Javier Vazquez, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
Cafardo notes that Washington’s interest in Vazquez may be “piqued”

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...
