In other Washington Nationals Hot Stove news, Stephen Strasburg posed for a picture with Rickey Henderson and Dave Winfield at the 45th Annual Sun-Times Sports Collectibles Convention on Sunday in Chicago. Photo via @stras37 himself. Here's to hoping Rickey convinced Stephen to begin referring to himself exclusively in the third person in all future interviews. This photo should keep you at bay for a few minutes while sitting around waiting for the Anibal Sanchez to the Nats rumors to get going, and/or reports of BJ Upton and/or Michael Bourn dining in Georgetown.
Also appearing at the convention: Shaq, Reggie Jackson, Evan Longoria, Brooks Robinson, and a bunch of famous Olympians (Nancy Kerrigan, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Carl Lewis, Bruce Jenner, Mark Spitz).
Nothing against Rickey and Dave, but we would've preferred a pic of Stras with Shaq.
