We had some time to kill on my most recent visit to the park, so the four in our group talked a little about the brief history of the Washington Nationals. It evolved into a trivia contest - a low-grade trivia contest for anyone who has followed the Nationals closely.
So to take your mind off this growing losing streak and the ugly starting pitching that has contribted to it, I thought I'd share some of the questions with you before I head north to take part in Bloggers Day Part II. Try to do it the "honest" way first, without looking up the answers. I'll post them later in the week.
*How many players have appeared in at least one game in each of the five seasons? Name them.
*Name the Nats All-Stars by season (I drew a blank on one and then kicked myself when I remembered the answer).
*Name the Nationals' Opening Day starters by year.
*How many in the Nationals' Opening Day starting lineup in 2005 are still on the club?
*Who was in that 2005 Opening Day starting lineup?
*This is one I'm not sure I can do - but can you name the starting rotation as it stood on Opening Day in each of the five seasons?
