Before we get started, I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Will (some of you may know me from the FanPosts section), and I'm new to the Federal Baseball team. I now write the Wire Taps, and I'm excited to get to work.
Now that introductions are out of the way...
Although we all may be caught up in the excitement of the Rays' upcoming game in Havana, the baseball commissioner of Cuba is already looking towards next year. He noted that he would like the Nationals to come to Cuba next year, and that the Nationals have (conditionally) invited them back to D.C. to play another exhibition game.
Ramos, after flying back to D.C. on March 3rd for laser eye surgery, is already seeing a difference in his hitting... he hopes that it'll help him "behind the plate, and in front of the plate as well".
Andrew Flax of the Nats Blog highlights the non roster invitees who could be important over the course of the season (headlined by Bronson Arroyo, of course).
Old school vs new school once again manifests itself in the Nationals clubhouse, as the players debate when/whether bat flips are appropriate. (Spoiler: Bryce Harper enjoys them)
With Ian Desmond getting ready to start his first season with the Rangers, it only seemed appropriate that a tribute be made to his signature helmet-pull-off move. No, seriously, this is a thing.
