Perhaps One Of The Greatest Headlines For A Former Nat Ever

That is one thing I did not know about Joey Eischen, former reliever for the Nats back in the storied 2005 season. I never knew he put on women’s clothing and hung around in bars, but if he is a lumberjack then is is okay. He also got promoted in the Colorado organization. Congrats, Madman.

Your Nationals Dispatch: The Defrosting Edition

We are finally back in NQ Headquarters after a long holiday. I wish I could say I come back vibrant and refreshed, but that never seems to be the case these days when it comes to holidays.

Your Nationals Dispatch: Rainy Day Edition

I’m looking out the NQ periscope and I see this strange, wet, transparent crap littering the ground. I think it is coming from the sky. Jesus, it looks cold out there.

Bye-Bye Bergmann And Nationals Pipe Dreams

Nats beat writer Bill Ladson reported on his Twitter Feed that Nats reliever Jason Bergmann has been granted free agency. I am considering tweeting him back and asking him, “Like that tree that falls in the woods when no one is around, does anyone really care?”
