Mike Rizzo Is Wanted In Connection With Putting Together A Crappy Team

The Washington Nationals were swept by the New York Mets in a two-game mid-week series that saw the Nats lose both games 1-0, leave the Big Apple without scoring any runs and plummeting them back into the NL East cellar.

Actually, it isn’t much of a “front” considering it is just two people we are talking about, but when you are talking about Nats pitcher Stephen Strasburg and prospect Bryce Harper in the same post you tend to go big.
