Casual Friday: How many players can you name on the Nats Spring Training roster?

New, 2 comments

We've got about a week's worth of spring training games under our belt. Let's see how many of the players vying for a spot on the Nats roster you know.

Whether he has a future with the Nats or not, how can you not love a guy named Spencer Kieboom?

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!  For those that are superstitious, let's hope that nobody else gets dinged up today.  There's been enough of that so far this week.

Anyway, I remember seeing hscer post a few Sporcle quizzes during game threads last season, so I know that at least a few of you are familiar with them.  In all, there were 62 players that the Nats brought to Viera with them this season.  Even though there doesn't look to be a ton of wiggle room on the opening day 25 man roster, we're all going to be rooting for a handful of new players this March.  Some of them are reclamation projects.  Some of them are legitimate prospects that we might see on a regular basis down the road.  Quite a few of them will probably never reach the big leagues, but let's burn their names into our brains anyway.

Feel free to let us know how you do in the comments, but please use spoiler text if you choose to mention a few of the names that you missed.  If you look around, you'll find that I did mention one player somewhere on this page who might not immediately spring to mind for many of you.  I'm not particularly optimistic about his immediate future with the Nats, but his surname certainly makes me envision him as a forty homer slugger.  Anyway, have fun with the quiz.  Kick back, relax, and enjoy a ten minute distraction.

h/t to Matt from Sporcle for the quiz!
