From the Nationals Journal, where my man Chico (the Writer) is determined to go out strong. He had an excellent story in today's fishwrap and had this outstanding tidbit in his online report on The Phenom's first workout of the spring.
Seems Mr. Strasburg has picked up the nickname "Jesus." Probably offends some but I love it and here's why (this is the part I lifted):
Why Jesus? "'Cause what's the first thing you say when you see him pitch?" centerfielder Nyjer Morgan said, excited just to answer his own question. "Jeee-sus!"
So now Morgan brings his speed to the offense AND the defense AND he's the best quote on the team.
Oh, and I can't wait to see Jeeee-sus pitch.
