Storen, Espinosa, Bernadina--Even Wilson Ramos

Wanting to see who Our Washington Nationals are promoting this off-season on their jerseys and tee-shirts, I headed over to Nationals Park late this morning to check out some of the new merchandise on sale for fans at the main Team Store. About 50 to 60 folks were already inside, or waiting inline outside to "Meet & Greet" with Washington Pitcher Drew Storen.  His teammates, Shortstop Ian Desmond and Pitcher Tyler Clippard had already preceeded him to this event while Jordan Zimmermann was waiting to finish off the two hour signing session.

Interestingly, not just Ryan Zimmerman and Stephen Strasburg shirts filled the store. There were Danny Espinosa, Ian Desmond and Roger Bernadina tees and jerseys for Pudge Rodriguez, Clippard, Zimmermann, Storen, Livan Hernandez--even Wilson Ramos. What wasn't noticable was any jersey or tee-shirt with Adam Dunn's name across the back.

The new fitted Navy Blue/Red Billed Curly "W" cap was for sale, as was a kid's sized sweatshirt with a script "Nationals" on the front. The only item in the store I noticed carrying the script "Nationals" secondary logo.  Also for sale were women's replica versions of the new uniforms.

Just thought we'd pass the information along.

PS--Talking with some fans who had taken the Nationals Park ballpark tour this morning, they mentioned Ryan Zimmerman was on the playing field with another teammate shooting some promotional spots wearing the new uniforms.

Wow. I had no idea this event was even happening. And I'm a partial STH. Where did they promote it?

Outside of the team's press release, some, print, radio and television news outlets ran stories or commentary about the new uniforms and signing session.

Also interesting that there didn't appear to be any Willingham stuff anywhere. Should we be concerned that he's trade bait?

Only after I left the store, did I think about Willingham, so I wasn't sure if there was clothing with his name of it or not. But if not, it at least shows his name is in play for something possibly happening with him over the next few months.
