In Case You Missed It

Every now and then some writing comes across my netbook that I feel the entirety of NatsTown needs to be aware of. So, this weekend especially, was apparently the time for quality writing about the Nats. Here are a few of the highlights.

Biffball (if you aren't following this blog already, do yourself a favor and bookmark it): Nationals Opening Discouraging Fans From Liking Them - Some analysis on Jim Riggleman's latest MASN commercial, in which he relays the values of so-called "Smart Ball". I'm not so sure ignorance counts as "Smart Ball" either...

Joe Posnanski: One of the best sports writers out there takes the same advertisements to task as well, in a post titled Chinese Jibberish.

Rob Neyer: The former ESPN writer turned legit Blogger, Neyer previews the Nationals 2011 season with his Question of the Day. What is the price of relevance?

Nats News Network: Dave Nichols does it again with his superb analysis of the Nyjer Morgan trade. As good as any beat writer out there.

Fangraphs: While listing the Organizational Rankings for each ballclub, the Nats come in a #24.

Mark Zuckerman: Another great analysis on whether we actually are a better ballclub without Nyjer roaming CF.

And finally, a quick twitter link of Cutter Dykstra from prospect genius Keith Law.

Any other Nats writing strike your fancy this weekend? Let us know in the comments!
