Where shall we hang this one in the D.C. Sports Hall of Horrors? Over here, next to the Redskins' 73-0 annihilation in 1940 title game? (Nah. That disaster deserves a mausoleum of its own.) Maybe over here, near the Bullets' no-show in the '75 finals. Or over here, beside the sweeping of the Capitals in the '98 finals.

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was held out of the starting lineup Monday night against Atlanta, one night after television cameras caught him not paying attention in the field as a pitch was thrown.
Cardinals third baseman David Freese will have surgery on his broken left hand and is expected to miss nine to 12 weeks, his latest extended setback.
The Cardinals are looking for a fill-in starter at third base after David Freese broke a bone in his left hand when he was hit by a pitch.
Daniel Descalso (33) argue that San Francisco Giants' Gregor Blanco was tagged out on a play during the eighth inning of Game 2 of baseball's National League championship series Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, in San Francisco.
"A lot of guys take pride in breaking up double plays. Holliday is one of them," Cardinals second baseman Daniel Descalso said. "On slowly hit balls you're going to get hit. You don't want anyone to get hurt, but I'm all for playing the game hard."
