Skins-Ravens Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 31-28 win over Baltimore.

Origin of RGIII’s ‘Show Up, Show Out’?

If you watched RGIII on the Monday Night Football set following the game last night, then you saw him use the phrase “show up and show out” no less than three times. He repeated it on his Twitter feed early this morning, too. I was not previously familiar with this phrase, but given how many times RGIII repeated it, it seems that it may be his new “thing.” But where did it come from...

So long, 6′9″ starting pitcher prospect and 2011 first-rounder Alex Meyer. Mike Rizzo and the Nats just shipped him to Minnesota for above-average center fielder and leadoff man Denard Span. That means a bunch of stuff: – The new outfield is Span in center, probably with Jayson Werth in left and Bryce Harper in right. That’s good defense. – Mike Morse is the odd man out, at least...
