Ranking the new NL East Managers

It’s been quite a month for the National League East. Between the New York Mets coming up short in the World Series and the hiring of three new managers, NL East teams have been making big splashes. Terry Collins of the Mets and Fredi Gonzalez of the Atlanta Braves are the veteran managers of the division, which only had two teams above .500. Collins recently agreed to a two...

Gio Gonzalez participates in the meow game

Sick and tired of athletes playing the meow game during interviews? Yes? No? Well, Gio Gonzalez took part during Wednesday’s Tigers-Nationals Spring Training game, baffling MASN’s Dan Kolko. Reporters can’t get a break this season. Between the meow game, one player serving as another’s arms, a player interviewing reporters after his start, and the downright mundane “pelt...

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez plays 'meow' game in interview

It appears the Washington Nationals pitching staff is having no problem getting along. The Nationals have big goals this season after yet another busy offseason, which they punctuated by signing top free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer to a megadeal. Now the Nats enter the season with arguably the big leagues’ top rotation including Scherzer, Gio Gonzalez, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister...

Gio Gonzalez offers another quote loaded with unintended sexual innuendo

Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez apparently can turn an unintentionally hilarious phrase as well as he can spin a curveball. Gonzalez, obviously somewhat misrepresenting the message he was trying to articulate, explained his bullpen session on Monday as follows: “I climaxed in the bullpen,” Gonzalez said, per a tweet from MASN Sports’ Chris Johnson. “I...Read More...

WATCH: Gio Gonzalez flips on teammate, has to be restrained

Up above, video of Gio Gonzalez flipping out in the dugout after giving up seven runs in the first two innings of Sunday's start in Oakland (final line: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR). Ugly. Gio had to be restrained several times by coaches and appeared to be jawing at a specific teammate (Rendon?) or teammates. Or...Ian Desmond? Via, Jose Lobaton said it was Desmond...

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez helps high schooler ask girl to prom

Georgetown Prep high school senior Nick Rolle’s list of potential prom dates consisted of one name — his girlfriend Lauren Thomas. But apparently having a girlfriend doesn’t mean you can slack on extending an invite to the big dance, because Rolle went all out. Rolle is fortunately enough to have a connection to the Washington Nationals. […]

Video: Gio Gonzalez's home run sprint

As if Gio Gonzalez hitting his third career home run Wednesday night against the Mets wasn't fantastic enough, his home run trot was maybe even more fantastical. A full-on sprint around the bases with a sh*t-eating grin on his face? Fantastic. Apparently his teammates were impressed, too: One of Gio Gonzalez's teammates in the dugout after his home run sprint: "You were running...
