And so, Anthony Rendon talked with Johnny Holliday and Ray Knight after going 3-5 with a double, HR, and 4 RBI in Saturday night's 11-0 beat-down of the Phillies, and clarified what happened with that yawn in the batters box last week in Miami:
Tony: "I try not to get to anxious out there, try to take deep breaths. Everyone's already talking about me yawning the other day in Miami. I mean, I can't yawn? What's wrong with that? It's just lack of oxygen to the brain."
Ray (laughing): "No, it's great to yawn. It just shows how calm you are!"
Rendon's appearances on Nats Xtra are always enjoyable, especially the facial expressions:
