Washington Times' writer Bob Cohn covered the Natosphere's bloggers covering the Nationals yesterday when the Nationals themselves were kind enough to invite a selection of writers behind the scenes before Sunday's game with the same Brewers they play tonight. The story, linked below was printed in the Washington Times this morning: 

• Bloggers get suite access at the ballpark - Washington Times - Bob Cohn

"The bloggers got to interview Washington Nationals interim manager Jim Riggleman and some of the players and general manager Mike Rizzo and team president Stan Kasten and other team officials. The bloggers got to watch the Nationals beat the Milwaukee Brewers in their own bloggers suite - 'the first of its kind,' Kasten proudly proclaimed - and, of course, they will blog about all of it."
