Not alot of Nats news these days, so I wanted to show you something that caught my eye this weekend. Collin Balester’s got a brand new website, and it’s pretty impressive. The Nats starting pitching prospect has quite a bit going on here, including a blog that I’m hoping he maintains a bit more than his last one. Plus, his obsession with his own mustache comes front and center as he has a “mustache watch” section. I guess that’s where we get to see him look more and more mustachioed.
This week on his blog, he is counting down his top 5 hobbies, and number 5 was mustache growing. This could be very entertaining. He’s also got a section for videos, and an area with a game you can play – but you’re a hitter in the game. Shouldn’t you get a chance to pitch on Bally’s site? Regardless, it’s fun and a great way for a young player to try to interact more with the fans. And it shows that this is a guy who’s having fun with what he’s doing.
By the way, when I say the site “caught my eye” this weekend I meant I spent over an hour on Sunday night playing the freakin’ baseball game.
