Minor league teammates convince Jeff Francoeur that another teammate is deaf

Blast from the Past: Chad Cordero baseball camp

So what has former Nats closer Chad Cordero been up to? After leaving the Nats, his career largely faded due to injury. He also had a difficult period when his infant daughter died of SIDS. This...

Riggleman discussing scouting role with the SF Giants

1

Giants manager Bruce Bochy was the 3B coach on Riggleman's staff in San Diego in 1993-94. I hope Riggs gets the job. Despite what anyone thinks about his resignation and who is more at fault, the fact is that it's done. He won't be back with the Nats. So it's best that he get back to some sort of baseball job. Bethesda bars might lose some of their business, but I think they'll manage.

Another fan nearly kills himself while trying to catch a baseball

+

Check out the picture of the guy standing on a table next to the railing. There is almost nothing standing between him and a 20-foot head-first drop. He's only alive because his brother and other nearby fans held onto his legs. Is a baseball really worth that much? Just go to the sporting goods store and pick up a dozen cheap baseballs already. And quit diving out of the stands just to catch a baseball. What are you going to do with it anyway? You're not going to become independently wealthy from catching a HR derby baseball.

Given that the Nats aren't going to the post-season, who will you root for to win it all?

Of course my top preference would be for the Nats to be a playoff team and a true contender for a championship. But since that's not happening this year, I'll have to turn my attention elsewhere...
