GIO GONZALEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Which Nats Starter Is The Best?: Gio Gonzalez

On Monday, Will made the case for Max Scherzer as the Nationals’ best starter, followed by Joe’s argument for Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday and Andrew’s claim for Jordan Zimmermann on Wednesday. Now comes the moment readers of The Nats Blog have anxiously anticipated: the minor league guy is making a case for Gio Gonzalez. Logically, Gonzalez is not better than Scherzer, Strasburg...

From 2010-2013, Gio Gonzalez had an impressive stretch of seasons that never saw him post an ERA higher than 3.36 and annual strikeout totals of 171, 197, 207, and 192.

Washington Nationals: Looking forward the second half

The 81 game mark was passed a couple of weeks ago, and each team has played one series since finishing the all-star break.

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 MASNSports.com, 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.

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...

Gonzalez has happy-go-lucky role in Nats rotation

Before throwing his first pitch, Gio Gonzalez uses his cleat to draw a ''t'' on the mound, starting at the rubber and extending toward home plate. When he's pitching the way he should, his right foot will always land at the base of the letter as he delivers the ball, as it did each time Monday during his bullpen session in Washington Nationals camp. The longer vertical line keeps...
