• While the entirety of the DC Faithful has been focused on whether or not the Nationals will be able to sign their 1st Round pick, pitcher Stephen Strasburg, Washington has gone about locking up a good majority of the other players they drafted this year, and the good folks at the DC Pro Sports Report have taken a look at what each of the newest Nationals have accomplished since being drafted in an article by PennSkinsFan entitled, "With all the Strasburg talk, how are the rest doing". (ed. note - "The DC Pro Sports Report has also been doing a daily "Strasburg Watch" if you haven't been following along already.")
