Nationals Lose Out On Millions By Failing To Make World Series

NationalsEarly Saturday morning, minutes after his team suffered a devastating, season-ending loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo stood his ground on his much-debated decision to shut down starter Stephen Strasburg.

“We’ll take the criticism as it comes, but we have to do what’s best for the Washington Nationals,” Rizzo told reporters. “And we think we did.”

For the long term? Perhaps one can argue that cutting Strasburg’s season short will enable him to better recover from his Tommy John surgery and give him a greater pitching life. In the short term, financially speaking, shutting down the phenom could have cost the team tens of millions of dollars.

Sports Networking

The Importance Of Mentoring In Your Sports Career

As you may know, networking is a key part of entering the professional sports industry. The connections you make at internships, at sports career fairs or with your classmates and professors in college could help you get the sports job you’ve always dreamed of.

However, sometimes, you may need a little extra help refining your career goals or learning about the industry.

Rays’ Longoria Sits Down With ESPN Playbook To Talk ‘Call Of Duty’

Evan LongoriaWhat’s the one thing Evan Longoria hates more than a fireball-throwing closer chin-checking him with 100 mph heat? “Call of Duty” online snipers, that’s what.

“I can’t stand when they show the kill cam and some guy sniped me while hiding behind some bush off in the corner of the map and you don’t even know where he’s at. That’s so frustrating,” Longoria says over the phone as we talk about his offseason gaming habits. “I play ‘Call of Duty’ online all the time. I have a theater setup in my house in Arizona, and I’ll sit there in the dark playing ‘Call of Duty’ against my friends.”
