Inside Washington…

Washington is still in turmoil and has been exposed in a similar light to the outing of J. Edgar Hoover, yes I can confirm from ‘inside sources‘ that more cross dressing is going on in Washington than you think. This time it’s not some guy that has similarities to that of Adolf Hitler, just with different hatreds, yet weird secrets. It’s not some super scoop of President Obama in the First Lady’s, closet playing dress-up, this my friends is a simple cross dressing in plain sight, like that of Milton Bradley in a Mariners uniform instead of a Cubs uniform, it is non other than the leader in Washington

nats-riggleman.jpgRiggleman, dressed as a manager with his friend and cohort John McLaren dressed as a bench coach, yes these two are playing role reversal and they still can’t produce a winning team.

While the Atlanta Braves and the media hype around them promote the newbie Heyward to heights of greatness that he’ll never live up too, the Washington Nationals and it’s media barely make a ripple over the existence of the short stop Ian Desmond….

…and while they don’t give this kid more national coverage he will be in danger of loosing out in a fight for the Rookie of the Year purely because of media hype and coverage.

This however is not uncommon in Washington as we have seen in the past and continue to see as they play down one of the best 3rd basemen in the National League…

Ryan Zimmerman. This maybe Washington’s way of hiding the facts so they don’t lose the fight, had this been any other town then Zimmerman would have been in a different uniform by now gathering the glory of at least some post season games, instead he has to sit back and accept that quietly he will get his ‘Silver Slugger’ and ‘Gold Glove‘ awards without any national media coverage.

What else was uncovered in Washington this week, yes more role reversals, an unusual one this time involving Ryan Howard. The normally over-bearing size and height of Howard makes others feel and seem somewhat miniature in stature, however at first base this week…

Adam Dunn gave Ryan Howard a small glimpse of that same feeling.

The Phillies are set to finish a 3 game stand in Washington today and hopefully continue the onslaught of runs, with 19 in 2 days it’s looking like a fruitful road trip has begun well for the Phillies. They will move on to Houston Friday and face a demoralized Astros, who were taken apart by the Giants over a 3 game set this week.

    Oh my. By the title of this post I thought we were gonna have a dirty expose on Ron Washington. And that’s about 500 lbs of man on first base in that last pic.

    19 runs in two games? The Phillies are swinging the bats! You’re right about the Nationals’ stars not getting media recognition. On the other hand, the ML debut of Strasburg is sure to be “an event.”

    Is it any wonder the Nationals get overlooked? The only reason the stadium was full on Opening Day was because half the crowd was Phillies fans. It was amazing to see all the empty seats during last night’s broadcast. They’ve got a nice ballpark – too bad they don’t have some fans to fill it.

    Jane – We’ll see, they should really hold Strasbourg back at least till next year, but who knows with the Nats…

    Sue – The Nats definitely have a problem getting locals to the stadium…

    Howard and Dunne…think of the BBQ possibilities. When i went last year it was over-run with Met fans too. I still say those running Presidents are some of the best goofballs in baseball! I love those guys.

    Mike – yeah the running presidents are funny… but I notice they have a gecko in a Nats uniform too at the end of the race…. I guess anyone can get in on that with the right payment…LOL
