For inspiration, Nationals turn to ... Mike Shanahan?
The whiteboard in the Nationals clubhouse typically contains the day's schedule and events -- what time for batting practice, when players need to be on the field for the National Anthem, if the barber is available. Things like that. Today, hitting coach Rick Eckstein scrawled a quotation above it all:
"The way to bring out the best in you is not by chance, but rather through preparation."
- M.S. -
"M.S." stands for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Eckstein has been reading one of Shanahan's books lately, and he found that saying particularly appealing. And so we have D.C. sports cross-pollination.
