Gio Gonzalez never takes credit for any of his success, but that doesn't stop him from getting excited for his role in game one.
He is 19 years old and plays the game of baseball with a flair and aggressiveness that is at times jaw-dropping.
I absolutely don't have a problem when athletes use clichés. You know, like the ones in the movie "Bull Durham," when Crash Davis tells "Nuke" LaLoosh when talking to media he should say things like, "You have to play them one day at a time, I'm just happy to be here and hope I can help the club and I just want to give it my best shot."
He takes very little credit when he pitches well -- but it was hard to ignore what Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez did against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night in a 1-0 win at Nationals Park.
Gio Gonzalez pitched three scoreless innings in his first start of the spring while Jayson Werth and Mark DeRosa each homered as the Nationals beat the Braves 5-2.
Gio Gonzalez agreed to a $42 million, five-year contract with the Washington Nationals on Sunday, just three weeks after the left-hander was acquired in a trade with the Oakland Athletics.
