Tuesday night is the first home game for the Washington Nationals since Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, and Ian Desmond were named to the National League All-Star team. All three players used their congratulatory press conference to heap praise on their teammates and to remind Nationals fans to vote for Bryce Harper to win the final spot on the National League team.
"The question is...how many times did YOU vote for Bryce today?" - Ian Desmond #Nationals #ASG #BryceIn12— Nationals PR (@NationalsPR) July 3, 2012
So, Nationals manager Davey Johnson, you're obviously going to follow the lead of three of your best players and pull the lever (or whatever the 21st century equivalent of that is) for Bryce Harper, right?
Well, not exactly.

Before your minds jump to the obvious, dirty suggestions, we do know that Davey likes to look people up and check their, ahem, tweeters. Maybe he just likes to take a surf around the blogosphere before he goes to bed at night. (If so, then hi, Davey! Big fans over here!)
That's what he uses it for, right? Please tell us that's what it's for.
