We don't know a single thing about catching prospect Wilson Ramos or pitcher Joe Testa, widely reported to be acquired tonight from The Minnesota Twins by Our Washington Nationals for Matt Capps. And we are not going to pretend to either. But The African Queen and I do know that Matt Capps is a decent person and we enjoyed watching him perform on the mound wearing The Curly "W". Thrown off the cliff by The Pittsburgh Pirates last winter, Capps enjoyed a renaissance season closing games in The Nation's Capital. He solidified the back end of Washington's bullpen, made the National League All-Star team and showed up for countless community events.
From the very first moment Sohna and I first meet Matt Capps, we knew he was a class act. As we've stated many times before, the hardest part of being a fan of Our Washington Nationals is watching the good people, the one's we know are quality human beings, sent packing to another team. The business side of the game is many times hard to swallow.
We enjoyed Matt Capps wearing a Washington Nationals uniform and only wish him the very best in Minnesota or wherever his Major League career eventually continues after 2010. And you can bet, if The Twins make the playoffs this season, Nats320 is rooting for Minnesota in The American League post-season.
Good Luck Matt, Sohna and I only wish the best for you and Jennifer.
We will miss you.
