If there’s any place Moss has a shot of cracking an OF or bench spot, its gotta be Oakland.

Mock is absolutly terrible, he never did anything for the Nats and id be willing to bet a large amount of money that he never does anything worthwhile in the majors ever.

Im pretty sure most nats fan agree with me.  good riddance.
