Guzmanic Depressive

You have GOT to be kidding me! This isn't even funny any more.

2005: Traditionally mediocre shortstop mired in an historically awful season. Sure, it was terrible, but it was terrible in an epically bad, interesting, watchable way.

2006: When Royce Clayton is your starting shortstop, God has it in for you team. (See also, Toronto Blue Jays, circa 2007.)

2007: Renewal! Redemption!! Re-GUZ-ification!!! In the midst of a career season GUZMANIA! is struck down by Josh Barfield's stupid oversized head. (Seriously, it's like an orange on a toothpick!)

Now Guzie's gone for the season, with torn ligaments in his thumb. FLop goes back to shortstop, Belliard to 2B, and D'Angelo Jiminez prolongs his pointless major league career. It's not fair. It's not right. It just is.

But we've been down this road before. Every year in fact. And so we begin again. Nats Triple Play, the official home of the GUZMANIA!: Great in '08! campaign.

Barfield's like a walking candy apple!

OMG, the official home of "LOSE THE GUZ!: Cut by '08!" campaign. (hey I said I'd give him till the All-Star break. It's not my fault he didn't hold up his end of the bargain)

tee hee hee. "stupid oversized head"

I'd be slightly disappointed if Guz WASN'T HURT ALL THE FREAKING TIME. Dude!

Sorry to see the Nats struggling so this season... not really sure what they can do to turn things around either. Anyway, I wanted to post a comment to tell you, when you write new blogs posts, go over to BeTheRef.com and post a link to your story, and hopefully get a few extra readers. Take care and thanks for the great blog!

6th highest paid player in franchise history, what a sad tenure so far. In case you want to see who the other players are: http://nationalsreview.wordpress.com/
