RGIII to Nationals “Could I crack tonight’s lineup?”
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III took to Twitter today and asked the Washington Nationals, and Center Fielder Bryce Harper specifically, if his baseball swing he displayed in a new video was good enough to get him a slot in the lineup for tonight’s game against the National League East Division leader Atlanta Braves.

The video showcases RGIII putting the new EvoShield Rib Shirt to the test hitting the protective covering with a baseball bat. Though his swing looked good, it’s doubtful that RGIII will be in a Nats uniform tonight as the Nationals try to at least gain some ground on the Braves, who have a stranglehold on the Division and increased the lead to 15 1/2 games with Justin Upton’s 10th inning home run in last night’s game.
Yes I’m sure RGIII could play for the Nationals and yes I’m sure his swing would improve the struggling team, but Robert shouldn’t you be concentrating on Week One of the Regular Season which is less than a month away? Let’s not go running the bases and mess your knee up again shall we?
