Is Gio Gonzalez Over Tanner Roark the Right Call for Nationals?

One of my favorite Twitter hasthtags is #firstworldproblems. Who among us can’t appreciate the difficulties of iPhone ownership or the lack of farm fresh eggs? This is a seriously challenging world in which we live, and it can be a daily struggle navigating a life in the developed world. I’m still not used to the color change of the Netflix app. #firstworldproblems — First...

Spring training. A time for stretching out those winter muscles, giving interviews and having a little fun. Did I mention giving a lot of interviews? So a bored Gio Gonzalez, on a challenge by teammate Max Scherzer, combined two of those job descriptions Wednesday and squeezed in "meow" instead of "now" ten times during one of those interminable interviews: Go ahead and watch...

Gio Gonzalez meows through spring training interview

"2015 right meow looks great." Indeed. Nothing more to say about this one. Deadspin counted 10 "meows" by Gio during his interview with MASN's Dan Kolko; we counted at least 50. Scherzer was keeping his own count.   (Screencap via video)

Gio Gonzalez participates in the meow game

Sick and tired of athletes playing the meow game during interviews? Yes? No? Well, Gio Gonzalez took part during Wednesday’s Tigers-Nationals Spring Training game, baffling MASN’s Dan Kolko. Reporters can’t get a break this season. Between the meow game, one player serving as another’s arms, a player interviewing reporters after his start, and the downright mundane “pelt...

Gio Gonzalez ‘Meows’ Throughout Interview

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez plays 'meow' game in interview

It appears the Washington Nationals pitching staff is having no problem getting along. The Nationals have big goals this season after yet another busy offseason, which they punctuated by signing top free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer to a megadeal. Now the Nats enter the season with arguably the big leagues’ top rotation including Scherzer, Gio Gonzalez, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister...

Gio Gonzalez offers another quote loaded with unintended sexual innuendo

Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez apparently can turn an unintentionally hilarious phrase as well as he can spin a curveball. Gonzalez, obviously somewhat misrepresenting the message he was trying to articulate, explained his bullpen session on Monday as follows: “I climaxed in the bullpen,” Gonzalez said, per a tweet from MASN Sports’ Chris Johnson. “I...Read More...

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez flips on teammate, has to be restrained

Up above, video of Gio Gonzalez flipping out in the dugout after giving up seven runs in the first two innings of Sunday's start in Oakland (final line: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR). Ugly. Gio had to be restrained several times by coaches and appeared to be jawing at a specific teammate (Rendon?) or teammates. Or...Ian Desmond? Via, Jose Lobaton said it was Desmond...
