What You Need to Know, Non-Redskins Edition

Skins stuff below, after I steel myself to read 973 stories about Jason Campbell and Mark Brunell when I have time.

The young Nats will have MLB's youngest skipper, who started really young. Zim loses out on ROY (but shrugs off the result), leaving assistant GM Bob Boone at a loss for words. The AL ROY, meanwhile, is Virginian Justin Verlander, although the award doesn't necessarily mean much. And the Cubs really want Soriano, whose first name Stan Kasten cannot spell.

Maryland's freshmen guards are improving, and ex-Terp Travis Garrison of the L.A. D-Fenders has his trial postponed. Gilbert shows up after a Georgetown practice and a writer is worried about the Hoyas' backcourt. Wizards' prospect Oleksiy Pecherov is hurt. And, in a great video-game interview, Gilbert says Super Mario Bros. is the best game and that he makes virtual Gilbert shoot 100 times a game.

D.C.'s most successful team, the "up-and-coming" Caps, win again despite a storm of shots. Players aren't satisfied, and Kolzig is in a major zone. Plus, some dude in England is a huge Caps fan.
