HE SAID WHAT?

“I have no expectation that this year’s draft is going to be revolutionary in terms of pay, especially with the economy down.” - Nationals president Stan Kasten before the team drafted pitcher Stephen Strasburg

THE BEST OF THE WEEKEND IN SPORTS

Penguins at Red Wings

One game to decide it all. It doesn’t get much more exciting than this.

Nationals at Rays

The Nationals make their first trip to St. Petersburg, Fla. The teams last met at RFK Stadium in 2006, when Washington took two of three.

Lakers at Magic

It only would be appropriate if this series goes seven games, but Phil Jackson isn’t the type of coach who lets that happen.

PGA Tour St. Jude Classic

Phil Mickelson has looked sharp heading into this U.S. Open tuneup. But it’s his wife, Amy, whom everyone’s really pulling for.

TWT FIVE ” Things to do once the NBA and NHL seasons end

1. Watch the Nationals pursue a record for all-time futility.

2. Follow the red-hot Mystics. (We’re not kidding: They’re 3-0.)

3. Settle in for Tiger’s next display of golf dramatics.

4. What? The NBA and NHL seasons aren’t over yet?

5. Just get out of the house, for crying out loud.
