Andray Blatche visits Nationals Park

Andray Blatche made his first visit to Nationals Park on Tuesday expecting to catch phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg. But like he many others, he was probably disappointed that he had to watch Miss Iowa instead of Miss Universe, as Strasburg was pulled from his start in favor of Miguel Batista because of an inflamed right shoulder.

Blatche joked that he could be a good first basemen and offered a terrible rendition of the national anthem in the clip. He later took out the lineup card with Nationals Manager Jim Riggleman when one of the umpires asked if he plays for the Wizards and how many times he's fouled out. "Probably twice," said Blatche.

The encouraging news from the video is that Blatche was moving around without crutches, although he still was a bit hobbled with a protective boot on his right foot. He also told Riggleman that has "six more weeks left," which keeps him in range to return in September.

The Wizards will be terrible again this year. They'll have to contend with Miami, Orlando, and Atlanta, and that's just in their own division. Go ahead and pencil in those losses right off the bat. The only time they might get a division win is when Charlotte comes to town. And that's definitely not guaranteed. Good thing we have zippo to show for last year's number five pick and high second round picks. They'll be lucky if they win 30 games. And by the 20th time Flipper talks about "When I was coaching Garnett," and it's not even yet Christmas, the players will have tuned him out. Kevin Seraphin? Ernie's latest Euro project? Puhleeeze. Leonsis needs to go ahead and clean house. Get rid of Grunfeld, who's high water mark was five years ago when they won 45 games and exited in the second round of the playoffs. And get rid of Saunders, who thinks coaching is about buying ipods for the players in training camp, and then blaming them publicy for everything while taking zero responsibility for anything. Those guys need to go.

I wasnt sure when this was filmed until they panned down to the boot on his foot, great to see him getting around that easily and not looking fat-faced. All signs pointing towards a monster year for Dray, cant wait to see him and Wall start to click- could be our future!

Or another future -- as a first baseman to finish out the season -- if the Nats end up trading Adam Dunn.

I hate to disappoint you but I don't write my posts hoping others pay attention to them.

Just because sonny2 is smart enough not to get caught up in the BS the organization sells the fans doesn't make him a whiner.

You would be smart to pay attention to my post because everything I wrote about last year came true....but no one is willing to admit it now, are they?

I give credit to AB for attempting to sing the national anthem. At least he didn't approach it with this attitude:
