The good news is, even if this Chien-Ming Wang gamble doesn't pay off for the Nationals, at least we all enjoyed the Wang jokes. This one at Nationals.com is a keeper. Spring has sprung, and word out of Nats camp in Viera this morning is that Wang wasn't very impressive. Ahem. Throwing the ball, that is. A very disappointing Wang.
And even more Wang jokes, courtesy of Nationals Journal:
Though the low level of intensity in Wang's session indicated he has a long way to go, the Nationals liked what the saw.
"The next day is when we really want to check [Wang] out," Riggleman said. "How do you feel after sleeping that night? We'll get a little more information about that tomorrow." (via Nationals Journal, 2/17/2011)
Okay, so let's wait and see how Wang is feeling in the morning.
