As expected, the Washington Nationals have tendered contract to all ten players on their roster who were arbitration eligible.  The only two that had question marks were 2B Danny Espinosa and P Ross Detwiler.  Given the fluid situation at second base right now, Espinosa was considered to be a foregone conclusion.  The big question mark was on Detwiler.

Former Redskins Shawn Springs crushes Redskins secondary

Yesterday we witnessed a historically bad performance by the Washington Redskins secondary.  From top to bottom, it was an awful day.  It was so bad that the Redskins allowed 279 yards on just FIVE plays.  Still, outside S Ryan Clark, some in the secondary state that the communication in the secondary has been great.  Really?   If that is great communication, I would hate to...
