Video above of Roger Bernadina discussing the Netherlands' 4-1 loss to the Dominican Republic in a WBC semi-final last night. Also, in a Tweet after the game, The Shark referred to himself as "the shark self".
Shark back to Nats soon...

For some reason we thought it would be worth posting this video of old friend Rick Ankiel hitting a home run off Stephen Strasburg on Saturday night (video via MLB.com):

In other important Washington Nationals Spring Training news, Gio Gonzalez went to Magic Kingdom on Sunday and posed with Winnie the Pooh. First Bryce Harper posing with Mickey Mouse, now Gio with Winnie the Pooh. Next up, Jayson Werth with Baloo the Bear?

While you're sitting around worrying about what's wrong with Drew Storen (that is, if you're sitting around worrying about Drew's 2nd blown save of the spring last night -- 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 BB), here's video from high up above of Nats' mascot Screech hitting an over-the-head, backwards halfcourt shot during halftime of last night's Wizards game. Dagger! Pretty impressive stuff there, Screech.

In other Washington Nationals spring training news, Ian Desmond revoked
"cowboy" Tyler Moore's Man Card for eating corn on the cob with a knife
and fork in the Nats clubhouse on Thursday. And yes, this is more important than the cuts earlier this morning that sent Eury Perez, Nathan Karns, Sandy Leon, Anthony Rendon, Pat McCoy, Will Rhymes, and Matt Skole to the minors.

So Gio Gonzalez made an appearance on MLB Network's Intentional Talk on Wednesday following his five shutout innings for Team USA on Tuesday. Here's the video:
Among the interesting tidbits gleaned from the 8 minute segment: Gio has a custom Captain America bat (!?). There it is in a screencap below. Not sure "Just what the Doc ordered" is the best inscription though, you know...

Admit it, seeing Michael Morse in this 2013 Mariners "True Blue" commerical left you feeling a little sad:
Anyway, this is the last Michael Morse post you'll see here, until the next time the Nats play the Mariners, of course. Now, cue "Take on Me..."

Down below, video (via MLB.com) of Gio Gonzalez's five shutout innings for Team USA against Puerto Rico last night. Not too shabby for The Hialeah Kid: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K, 69 pitches-48 strikes.

Up above, the fantastic new USA StickBallBoy t-shirt Gio Gonzalez gave Ross Detwiler. (Photo via @NationalDet)
Gio was wearing another StickBallBoy shirt in an interview after his first ST start -- Federal Baseball noted that House of Leagues is Gio's own clothing line (!?). Anyway, there are a bunch of House of Leagues/StickBall Boy t-shirts available for sale here (and look at Gio with models on the homepage!) but not that one (yet!).

Just a photo of Gio "The Hialeah Kid" Gonzalez's Team USA jersey, as Tweeted by @giogonzalez47 himself on Monday. Gio gets the start for Team USA against Puerto Rico tonight, of course...
Meanwhile, Adam LaRoche could've played for Team Mexico?
