Stephen Strasburg is injured. Adam Dunn is gone. Bryce Harper is 13 years old. The Zimmerman(n) back-to-back gimmick is still a year or two away.
And so, here’s the cover of the Nats’ 2011 media guide. Mike Rizzo appears to be the featured attraction. Well, either Mike Rizzo, or Mike Rizzo’s cell phone.
Also note the way Jayson Werth’s left leg, Ryan Zimmerman’s right leg and Rizzo’s torso sort of form a W pattern. Not exactly curly, but you can see if it you squint real hard.
(By the way, what happened to Werth’s bat? Where is the rest of Zimmerman’s leg? And why does Werth not have a beard, anyhow? So many questions.)
