YOU ARE WERE THE MILLIONTH VISITOR TO FEDERALBASEBALL.COM!! That may be peanuts to folks who run a blog about MMA or the Yankees, but I think it's pretty good for a scrappy blog about a promising-but-struggling team. Congratulations to our dogged proprietor, the sleepless Patrick Reddington! FB.com, now at 1,006,295 visits and counting.

Nats' Assistant GM Bob Boone on Sirius/XM MLB Network's "Power Alley" Talking Jordan Zimmerman and Chien-Ming Wang: "Both of them are coming [along] great. Jordan Zimmermann, in particular, is way ahead of schedule, we’re actually slowing him down a little bit. But, we're not planning on really having him involved a lot this year. He should be out by the end of July, 1st of August...He's throwing terrific, the scary part of that is coming off [elbow reconstruction]...when he's pitching it's like, 'Boy, he's back!', but you don't want to have a setback..." "[Chien-Ming] Wang is doing well from my reports. I have not seen him, I talked to our head trainer the other day in the minor leagues and he said he's feeling really good, so, we're just keeping our fingers crossed." "We take a pretty conservative approach, especially with the pitching, so, they're going to be when they're ready, but it's looks like they are going to be ready and that's the big thing." Nats' Assistant GM Bob Boone on Sirius/XM MLB Network's "Power Alley" this afternoon.

When Ken Burns throws out the first pitch he won't actually move, but it will be a slow pan shot from him on the mound in his pitching stance to the catcher with the audio of a ball hitting a glove and the fanfare in the background... and maybe Morgan Freeman narrating.

Commenter alex35332 nails the Burns' style in Bog comment section.

"I just feel it's so funny cause Stephen, I think, had the situation figured out before he left for Spring Training, because the last thing he asked me before he left was, 'You know, what do you do when you want to make a club but you're not sure if they're gonna let you?'" - SDSU Skipper Tony Gwynn on Sirius/XM's Insider Pitch talking about former Aztecs' ace Stephen Strasburg.
