I, by changing into a beast, give the animals here intelligent leadership…AS ONE OF THEM!
Maybe they call it “Beast Mode.” You have seen the Nationals’ first baseman Michael Morse and his now-famous t-shirt during MASN’s Nats Xtra postgame show interviews, haven’t you?
...Guys like Werth, Rick Ankiel, Danny Espinosa, Laynce Nix, Ian Desmond and Morse play baseball not to avoid contact, but to seek it out. This is the kind of team the Nationals are becoming. Pants are ripped up, there is mud and clay over all their white uniforms after nine innings with these guys.
...I felt it last season when I walked through the Reds clubhouse in Cincinnati while working the sidelines for MASN.
A certain toughness and never-say-die attitude permeated from each player. They were respectful and greeted you politely. But they definitely gave off the feeling that they felt they were better than the team the were playing and they were going to prove that on the field.
Joey Votto, Gomes and Johnny Cueto displayed this confidence almost on their sleeves. I get that sense with Gomes now that he is a National and Tuesday’s collision at the plate is an example of the Nationals “beast mode” in full effect.
