Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

He may not be a movie star yet, but Nyjer Morgan has stolen the hearts of Nats fans everywhere. And with the air time he's getting on this celebratory jump on Sunday, is there any reason he can't do some cinematic work in the offseason? We say no. What say you?

Which Picks Actually Signed

Stephen Strasburg wasn't the only first round draft pick to leave it until late to sign his first professional deal yesterday.

When It Clicked: Nationals RHP Jordan Zimmermann

Jordan Zimmermann has made a career out of coming out of nowhere. He was lightly recruited out of Auberndale (Wisc.) High, developed into a top prospect at Division III Wisconsin-Stevens Point, then blitzed through the Washington Nationals' farm system in a mere 22 months from the time he was drafted (second round in June 2007) to his big league debut this April 20. In other words, the past, say, six years has been a series of rapid-fire "clicks." What was the most critical stage in his development? He says it was the transition from high school to college.
