Alan May makes the case that Ted Leonsis is the most influential owner in town
Fri, 8 Mar 2013|
CSN Washington dot -- In my opinion Ted -- this is the most influential order in this area. Buying Verizon Center after the passing of a poll on a court in the Wizards and the capital starting monumental digital television. Those are all key moves in the series but you know what it all stems to what the capitals have done and how big their brand has become not just in this area which was much needed. But throughout the National Hockey League. All over the world the capitals are now a major brand in the sporting world. And it's all because of Ted Leo to us. CSN Washington dot com.

see us and so much talk here about system system system and when we watch you guys play. I mean you guys played to a team and that's it seems the reason you're able to just shut down teams what's the biggest. Way that you guys are able to just stick to that. Well I think the biggest thing is is there's a real. Big nucleus of guys that have been here with this coach for a long time and it. No one of those things take time consistency in the systems in and kind of learning it doesn't. It's so hard for I think for any team to accept the description you can tell the Washington how how well they're playing The learning period but to come in New York. They for the guys with the guys that have been informed the school to state Clifton. It's expensive. I know you've been back here a few times as a member of another team does it get any easier is it any. Mean not as weird toilets he had been dagger a couple of times in his semi it's you know lessons we're. I says sometimes you're gonna chase lieutenant changing any. Trying to figure what team you're on see so many jerseys and sometimes you see it in Montreal scoring like. It throws you for a but that lasts about wanting to shifts and then you get into it and but it's it's it's always a fun place to come back to him. It's it's it's a great building going to Kasparov playing for new Yorker and now. The best I think just yeah attitude of the team what's expected of the team and Working towards trying to win a championship fining and every team is is is you know as an ambition. But to this group there's a lot expected of him and it's it's it's fun ups and downs and of this season so far have been have been a lot of fun learning tournament themselves. CSN Washington dot com.
Nationals not concerned with lack of left handed pitchers in bullpen
Sun, 10 Mar 2013
CSN Washington dot com. off season changes to every big league roster at the nationals a part away with three relief pitchers. Of note Sean Burnett Mike Gonzales and Tom Gorzelanny and they combined for 162. Appearances last year and all of them. We're lefties. So how they be replaced our nationals insider mark Zuckerman with more media. There are no obvious holes on the nationals roster that keep Davey Johnson awake at night one potential weakness is the lack of left handers in their bullpen. How Will Johnson be able to pick favorable matchups against the NL east's notable left handed sluggers pitching coach Steve the isn't concerned. If we didn't have the guys ago left handers that that we haven't given them out I would really worry about. we got guys in the left to resolve got pitches for left handers and I'll turn the situation and bring in that left him in the face one guy and I got a run back to a to the bullpen to get somebody else to match up there. We're Jim doesn't figure it out right handers and left handers I think that's really a good situation and that's one one that worry him. The only lefty who appears guaranteed a job Zach Duke a career starter who spent most of last season reworking his mechanics and Syracuse. After a strong September cameo in DC Duke is back and likely to be asked to hold multiple roles. I was joking with raining or the other day I said you know I'll have two or three hats Cheerios and take over Burnett Gorzelanny and England's all as a spots I had to face both my career had Success thumb against each other years were actually a little better against Brady's than lefties. Have had the opposite self. It's just a matter of knowing who's the plate and on knowing what you can do to get that counts. Tyler Clifford also downplays the nets' lack of lefties. Believing talent is more important than which side of the mound the ball front. I know Davey doesn't necessarily. Agree with the aspect of lefty specialist calm which. I think that's that's a great waited to be as a manager and then I agree with that I think you gotta let pitch I don't care about facing. face ten lefties and roads and writings in a row. How I'm confident enough in myself and and I know I'm doing out there it to get those guys out. CSN Washington dot com.

As a matter of fact the entire game on offense has been under fire lately but a solid game from the floor last night is something to build upon for the Wizards point guard. Sharing his thoughts on that three pointer that he hopes to replicate in the future. I decide it would up and say I only door and tell you make more shots. what I did you want them inside Taylor like desperation shots prefer more continuity in and as I got to do shootings that Iraq. This thing. That's important in making that next try it in and his shooting is just continue to conference show he missed a lot of really good looks last night in Brooklyn. I think you were six for nineteen in. And I would I would have taken any of them back. And they didn't go ahead now again I can easily come in here tonight they came you know do wondered did last night and I can really look. But he came right at him and got right in it make first couple ones and they got him going so. You know that's always important.
