Things are bad when a Guzman is your only All Star

Major League Baseball recently announced its 2008 All Star selection and you know your team, the Washington Nationals, are terrible when your only representatives is Christian Guzman, yes the same Guzman that the Twins did not want a couple of years ago and we overpaid for.

This is how bad the Nationals are at this point, our only representatives is a defense first short stop with a terrible contract, four years 16 million signed in 2005.

I know that he is a having a good year, .316 average with five home runs and 29 RBI, but guess what is career average is: a very respectable .268, yes .268. Last year Guzman was so bad that some Nationals fans were even thinking maybe the Nationals should just buy out his contract and yes he is our representative for the All Star Game this year. Wow I am proud, can you feel my happiness.

As a Nationals fan there is really nowhere to turn at this point, maybe beer, but I turn to that enough. The major league team is an embarrassment and all though I like what they have done over in the last couple of drafts, hope is at least a couple of years away.

Things are so bad this year that we are paying Jose Vidro $ 2.5 million and Rob Mackowiak $1.5 million, yes the same Mackowiak that has a career average of .259.
