Washington Nationals: Gio Gonzalez Press Conference Live Stream via Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

The Washington Nationals are set to introduce 26-year-old left-hander Gio Gonzalez to the D.C. press corps this afternoon. The Nats' acquired Gonzalez in a late-December trade with Oakland, sending four prospects (Tom Milone, Brad Peacock, A.J. Cole and Derek Norris) to the A's in return for a pitcher D.C. GM Mike Rizzo said has, "... all the prerequisites that we had to have for a deal of this magnitude." Rizzo described the 5'11'' starter, who finished his fourth major league season in 2011 with a (16-12) record in 32 starts and 202.0 IP over which he had a 3.12 ERA, 3.64 FIP, 91 walks (4.05 BB/9) and 197 K's (8.78 K/9), as, "... a young power-throwing left-hander." "He's got plus, plus stuff," the Nats' general manager said in a press conference after the trade, and, "Being a left-hander was really a key to this. We feel that he matches up very nicely between our two power right-handers [Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann]."

The Nationals introduce Gio Gonzalez today. Comcast SportsNet was kind enough to give us permission to post the live stream of the press conference here.
