 Several Capitals players were on hand to see their baseball counterparts. Chris Clark, Tom Poti, Brian Sutherby, Steve Eminger and Matt Pettinger took batting practice, shagged fly balls and chatted with Nationals players. They also got a tour of the home clubhouse at RFK. Not sure what was more surprising: that the Caps players seemed impressed by the less than modern facilities or that the guy showing them around was left-hander Ross Detwiler, who has been in the major leagues all of two weeks.


“You can look at it two ways. You have to look at the big picture. We have to look at since May 11 how well these guys have gone out there and competed and played regardless of our limitations.”
