It's a shot from when Chien Ming Wang returned to Taiwan in November and, at a press conference, talked about his future, while showing off the physical therapy techniques he's been using to rehab his shoulder. We'll leave this one alone.)
The headline writers over at Nationals.com are at it again with the Wang jokes:
Good one! Via MLB.com's Bill Ladson:
"I think he is capable of going out there and eating up a lot of innings," Bruney said via phone. "He is a ground-ball pitcher. He has a Brandon Webb type of sinker. He competes, man. He is going to get better. He is still learning, as we all are."

Meanwhile, over at Nats Insider, Mark Zuckerman noted this afternoon that the Nats might be the only team left in the running for Wang's services, after the Dodgers dropped out of the race.
But earlier this evening, Buster Olney reported over at ESPN dot com that there is another team still in the mix along with the Nationals, and that Wang "will make his decision about which team to sign with in the next week to 10 days."
On an unrelated note, anonymous sources with no knowledge of the situation report at this hour that Livan Hernandez is still sitting by the phone waiting for a call from Mike Rizzo.
Back to the topic at hand, here's one more Wang pic, from the aforementioned press conference in November:
