I registered last year but only started posting this season. I'm a big nats fan living in Los Angeles, so I have to pay through the nose to watch them stink up the ball park every day. I lived in DC for the innaugural season, but moved right after that.
I joined because I would read your posts for years as a visitor and always found you guys funny and entertaining. Why not be a part of that?
My favorite player is Zimmerman (I'm actually good friends with his fiance - still surreal to see a friend of mine will be married to a DC superstar), but I also have a big man crush on Ankiel. I think his story is so cool and I know he takes a lot of heat for his offense, but I got love for him. I get giddy when I see runners on 3rd base sit after a fly out to center that he is under.
Random MLB player I hate: Jeff Baker of the Cubs. I knew him growing up. Entitled douche. I actually route for injury whenever I see him in a game. That is how much I despise him.
Oh...and I'm a math guy, so I love to study the numbers behind the game. Cheers!
