With nobody out in the bottom of the ninth of a 3-2 Braves lead, Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond hit a chopper to his counterpart, Andrelton Simmons.

I participated Sunday night in my first ever fantasy mock draft with the folks from MLB Dirt and others noted for their skills in that realm. As such, I was a bit of a saltwater fish trying to adapt to a freshwater pond. I was pretty high on my shortstop, Ian Desmond, until I started to dig this morning into his numbers a little more closely. Once I did, his 2012 numbers looked...
And so while you're sitting around waiting for Adam LaRoche to sign that three year deal with the Red Sox, say goodbye to the ugly old Washington Nationals batting practice caps, and say hello to the new ones.

And so, while you're sitting around waiting for Adam LaRoche to sign a 3-year deal with some team not named the Washington Nationals, enjoy the video above of Ian Desmond's walkoff home run against the Diamondbacks back on May 2. Doesn't get much better than a walkoff, right?
Not so, Tweeted Desmond today after his first ever hole in one today on hole #13 at the Ritz...
The NL East leading Washington Nationals received some bad news on Sunday as shortstop Ian Desmond was diagnosed with an oblique tear.
