Can Collin Balester Haul As Much Ass Out Of The Bullpen As Coffey?

Birthday Boy Morse Puts The Candles On The Nats WIN Cake

Before we light the candles on this baby, I feel like I have to say something. I feel like I absolutely dropped the ball yesterday. First, Bryce Harper goes down with an ankle injury and then the Nationals get into a baffling half-brawl with the St. Louis Cardinals over in Jupiter. The NQ was at [...] Continue reading

Nats Go KAPOW, ZOOM, SMASH, THWOMP In Eighth For Win

They are gone. The Warlocks are finally gone. I returned from the Nationals three hour and thirty minute, 14-9 victory Spring Training affair with the Houston Astros and found the Warlocks gone.

So While The Nats Are Out Preparing For Disco Night…

We can speculate which one of them would look best in a fro. My money is on Tyler Clippard. That guy looks like he can party like Boogie Nights. We are combining the past two days events due to me going through a strange, serious bout of exhaustion and dizziness yesterday probably caused by eating [...] Continue reading

We Are Only Dust In The Wind, Nats

This posting is going to seem completely thrown together and the reason for that is because it was. Three days ago I was happily blogging away when I went to shut my laptop and I heard a big crack.

Collin Balester Is Obsessed With His Face Gerbil
