The Nat-ty Boys

Chatting with Drew Storen and Matt Capps this morning for an upcoming story on Nats320 about today's Professional Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS) "Play" Campaign at Nationals Park--the conversation turns to Capps being named to the 2010 National League All-Star Team.

SBF: You know the moment you were named to the squad, the folks online started speculating you should be traded because your value has never been higher.

Capps: Really? Oh, that's silly. I like playing here. I really do.

Storen: Why can't we have three good relievers out of the back of our bullpen that compliment each other? (Capps, Storen and Tyler Clippard)

SBF: Sort of like what The Cincinnati Reds did in 1990 with Rob Dibble, Norm Charlton and Randy Myers. They won the World Series on the strength of those guys.

Capps: The Nasty Boys!!

Storen: We need a nickname like that? (Pausing) How about The Nat-ty Boys!!

Capps: Yeah, that's it!!

Storen: Maybe we can all wear specially made sleeves on our arms to look like Dibble with his tattoos too?

Capps: That will make us throw harder for sure. (chuckling)

Storen: I going to copyright The Nat-ty Boys (heading off but smiling back that he's on to something good).

Capps to SBF: From know on, every time you use that name on your blog, you owe us $35.

SBF: OK, Great. (Both of us laughing)
