Quoted: Miguel Batista on meeting Miss Iowa
"Hopefully she says, 'Oh, he was a cool guy. He looked like a low-budget Vin Diesel, but he's nice.' "
-- Nationals pitcher Miguel Bastista anticipating his meeting with Miss Iowa USA Katherine Connors, who will throw out the first pitch at Friday's game, reports our colleague Adam Kilgore. Batista accidentally insulted the beauty queen Tuesday when he joked about what it was like to step in for Stephen Strasburg: "Imagine if you go to see Miss Universe, then you end up having Miss Iowa, you might get those kind of boos."
