This is smurfy smurftuation (forgive me, I had to sit through that movie in the theater with my kids).

In what appears to be some good-natured hazing, the Nationals veterans have mandated that the rookies dress as Smurfs for their trip to New York. The photo above was posted on Twitter by Jesus Flores and Papa Smurf (the one with the beard and the red pants/hat combo, for those uninformed on the Smurfs) is none other than Stephen Strasburg, who started Sunday. I can't make out who Smurfette is, but he seems to be embracing the role.

So, yeah, if you are en route to New York and run into a band of Smurfs, it's the Washington Nationals' rookies.
