SEEN AND HEARD AT COORS FIELD

DENVER - Count the Nationals among the ESPN viewers who have grown tired of the Brett Favre saga. As the latest round of news, reaction and hyperbole ran on the channel this afternoon, several players on a couch in the team’s clubhouse groaned, and outfielder Elijah Dukes compared it to the Disney Channel’s repetitive (and silly) programming. Finding a channel that wasn’t talking about the Packers’ on-again, off-again quarterback, however, wasn’t so easy.
