Well, the answer is today. The Nats are back in D.C. and very excited about it.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Rafael Soriano’s mom on why her son works so hard:
“When he needed something, I couldn’t provide it. He said, ‘When I’m a baseball player, you’ll see. Anything you need, I’ll give you.’ I told him, ‘Son, don’t worry. God will provide and much more.’ ”
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT II
Soriano, on growing up poor:
“I once was there. I met someone once who didn’t have much, didn’t even know what an apple was, a grape or a pear. God has blessed me, he’s blessed my family and people who aren’t my family that we’ve helped.”

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
I love gummy candy. You could make a gummy in any shape and I’d eat it. So when I see that FabCafe in Tokyo is using 3D printers to make gummy candy in any human likeness, I’m cashing in some miles and going to Japan. (via cheezburger.com)
