Friends Recruiting Friends

Just some random musings for the morning. * First, there was some discussion in these parts last week about the alleged Ryan Zimmerman/Adam Dunn friendship. So yes, I asked Zim about it this weekend. He confirmed and explained. Zim: I...

NatsFest, Over And Out

The DC Sports Bog is always worth a read -- shameless self-promotion alert! -- but that's especially true when it's filled with quotes from a particular team president and general manager. Some of these quotes are about George Steinbrenner and...
