Gio Gonzalez and Matt WIlliams enjoy a heated conversation (Video)

Wasn't it Jayson Werth who said on Thursday, "We don't have time for bullsh*t"? Apparently Gio Gonzalez didn't get the memo.

Strasburg sets Nationals single-season strikeout record

Stephen Strasburg has struggled this season to stay consistent on the mound. He entered Saturday with a 10-10 record and a 3.59 ERA, his worst of his five-year career.

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.

Georgetown Prep high school senior Nick Rolle’s list of potential prom dates consisted of one name — his girlfriend Lauren Thomas.
