Baseball Happenings

Amid horrific renderings of Casey at the Bat from Rep. Davis yesterday, baseball greats made their way to the Hill to testify before Congress about steroids and their effects on the game, society and cute little yellow fuzzy ducks. No word if Canseco or McGwire stuck around past their hearings yesterday to enjoy this city’s hospitality, but if this city may be judged by their treatment in Congress, they likely headed straight for the airport.

While our elected representatives grilled the players and the management about steroids, our Nationals were getting rained out down at Space Coast Stadium. Looks like things are shaping up for our Nats, though. They’re 8-7 with just a week or so remaining on the Spring Schedule. Tonight they face the Mets in a rare spring night game in Port St. Lucie.

For the curious, the Nats’ AAA and AA clubs are now beginning to fill their rosters from those who’ve not made the cuts, and so it looks like the New Orleans Zephyrs and Harrisburg Senators squads. Last cuts will be made in another week or two. It seems that much of the sod for the infield has been laid over at RFK, and you can watch their progress as we get closer. 17 days and counting until Opening Day in Philadelphia!
