Washington Post - Nationals Journal - "Next up, Garrett Mock" - Adam Kilgore

"Garrett Mock spoke often this spring about attacking hitters, how nibbling at the corners of the plate leads to inefficiency and how inefficiency is the thing holding him back. Tonight against the Mets would be the ideal time for Mock..."

Game Day Preview: 4/9: Mets vs. Nationals - Amazin' Avenue - Sam Page

"Ah, the Nats...baseball's cure to a losing streak. Or at least that's what they used to be. While it would take some serious tanking to place behind them this year, the Nationals are steadily improving. And in a series in which one team will call on Oliver Perez and the other will come back with Livan Hernandez, anything can and will happen. "

"Mets not split on this decision: Mike Pelfrey's newest pitch addition drawing rave reviews" - Brian Costa- NJ.com

"Now, the splitter is one of the biggest reasons Pelfrey is optimistic that 2010 will be different. He’ll find out just how well it works for him when he makes his first regular-season start Friday against the Nationals."
