If you're going to be attending a Washington Nationals baseball game this season and have a hankering for a burger, you might try the new eight-pound burger named after Stephen Strasburg that the team will be selling.
For those wondering what's on the "StrasBurger", here are the facts on it:
Weighing eight pounds total (including toppings), the StrasBurger is a
monstrous all beef burger (combination of ground brisket, chuck and
short ribs). The burger is served on a large burger bun with our secret
sauce, American cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced red
onions, pickle chips and served with a cone basket of fresh cut fries
and a pitcher of your choice of soft drink. This signature dish is the
perfect entrée to share at this affordably-priced family restaurant.
The burger itself will be on sale at the "Red Porch" concession stand in the Nationals stadium.

Sure, it's several days old now, but since we breathlessly followed Stephen Strasburg's exploits on the golf course during the offseason, including his near-miss hole-in-one and day at Trump National, we'd be remiss if we didn't post something about Stephen Strasburg's mini golf scorecard (above) which Stras Tweeted a picture of on Saturday. Apparently that...

So...didja hear the one about the mammoth blast Jayson Werth hit Sunday?Well, as it turns out, the Washington Nationals outfielder hit his own truck with the first inning homer off New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvery."It just left a hole in the Earth where my truck used to be," Werth said of the estimated 492-foot moonshot that ricocheted off the front bumper of his pickup...
There's a photo of Jayson Werth's custom 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 as seen in the players lot at Nationals Park at the end of last season (nice rims!). Fortunately for Werth, he can afford to drive a pickup truck (and not that ~$185,000 ride) to Spring Training games. Werth reportedly dented his truck with his own HR ball on Sunday at Space Coast Stadium:
After years of mediocrity, the Washington Nationals are finally starting to generate some buzz. With young starters Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann, the Nationals already have two of the better pitchers in the NL. Add to that the acquisition of Gio Gonzalez and many pundits are picking the Nationals to contend for the NL East title.
But, will the hype reduce your chances...
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth hit a prodigious blast during his team’s spring training game Sunday, but there’s a twist that adds more intrigue to the story.
According to a parking lot attendant, bartender, and two people dining at the Tiki bar beyond left field at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Fl., the ball sailed over the fence, and carromed off a palm try onto the bumper...
The Washington Nationals have had their share of significant injuries this spring, most notably the offensive loss of Michael Morse and Adam LaRoche. Both of those players may be ready, but it’s safe to assume that Werth’s offensive numbers may be critical to a successful 2012 season.
The man with the beard struggled in 2011 to start the season, with the weight of a seven...
Good: Jayson Werth hit a 492-foot blast during a spring training game against the Mets.
Bad: the ball ended up reaching the parking lot and hitting a truck’s back bumper.
Funny: the truck belonged to Werth himself. What are the odds?
What started out as only a rumor turned out to be true that Werth’s prodigious home run off Mets pitcher Matt Harvery struck the bumper of his...
