By “Nationals fans,” we mean genuine Nats junkies — armchair managers, bona fide seamheads who die a little with every midsummer loss and consider themselves knowledgeable about their team and the game. The type who stays up late every night when the Nats are out West. The fans who check their phones at weddings — even their own — to get the latest game scores.

Duggan will hang out with you for a day or two at spring training. You’ll share your painful recollections, batter-by-batter and pitch-by-pitch, of that awful top of ninth of Game 5. Think of it as therapeutic.
