The MLB All-Star Game is tonight and despite having a handful of worthy candidates, the Nationals will send only closer Matt Capps to represent the ball club. Our Nationals' blog, Federal Baseball, examines Capps' All-Star credentials, and profiles the other six All-Stars in the organization's history. On Capps:â†µ
...with his selection as the Nats' lone representative this year, he may well have positioned himself to be moved out of DC as one of a few chips the Nats have and could potentially replace should they decided to improve their roster before the July 31st non-waiver deadline comes around...but for tonight, Capps is the nation's capital's representative in Anaheim. LET'S GO CAPPS!!! LET'S GO CAPPS!!!â†µ
Kind of bittersweet, but true none the less. No matter where Matt Capps will suit up in August, tonight, he represents D.C.. I'm looking forward to him inheriting the lead late in the game against the juggernaut lineup the A.L. has, even off the bench. Should be some good old fashioned drama.
