Nats Take Great Pictures

The steady drizzle of bad news on the already tarp-covered half-empty field of Nationals dreams underneath the hazy skies of indifference has ruined what should be the hope-springs-eternalist few weeks of the year for the Nats. But no matter, because this team can take some great photos.

There are many more gems from Nats photo day at the Sports Hernia blog, but even the on-field action shots are great. Adam Dunn bunting? Jim Bowden showing off some Curly W action while addressing the media? Those bring late-February smiles.

Like, you have to wonder what runs through the photographer's mind for this picture. "Hmmm, maybe I should try to make Elijah Dukes look as ominous as possible for this cheery preseason shoot. Because there's always great comedic value in the playful tension between one's public image and a posted snapshot." Right-on, another job well done.

Here, we see Dunn again showing off his range of skills, while Ronnie Belliard's newly trim physique is on display. Small ball in '09, all the way around. Also, is Belliard's beard dyed?

And here, I like the hat, and I'm curious about the belt buckle. Maybe that's just my fashion weakness though.

It looks like the photo was taken in a confessional booth.

At least Nick doesn't have a big wad of chaw in his cheek.

That picture really shows Bellie's weight loss.

Good point, Cavalier.
