Good luck identifying any Nats, though. It's nearly impossible to pick 'em out in the video. Our first guess was that LaRoche as the guy who drives by on the dirt bike, and Werth as the big tall guy in the helmet waving the checkered flag. No sign of Zim.
But that guess would be wrong! After exhaustive analysis by internet sleuths @JWerthsBeard and @NLBeastNats, the three Nats can be spotted clearly in images from Jimmie Johnson's website.
One game into Spring Training, and it's already time to begin compiling the 2013 Bryce Harper highlight reel. Harper registered a hit and made a juggling circus catch of a Kirk Nieuwenhuis liner (video above via MLB.com) in the Nats 5-3 loss to the Mets on Saturday. "Bring on the dancing bears" said one of the Mets announcers on SNY.
"Like I said before, I've never taken performance-enhancing drugs and I
never will. Two days after the story broke, I was tested for blood and
urine, and both came out negative, like I expected. Throughout my entire
career, it's been like that. I look forward to handling this with MLB,
putting this behind me and looking forward to the season." (Gio Gonzalez, via Nats Insider, 2/22/2013)
Not out of the woods yet; but things keep looking up for Gio...
