Nats bullpen shows sense of humor

Check out the jackpot amounts for the lottery in the above photo -- and we'll send out a major thank you to The Nats Enquirer for giving us permission to use it. The Powerball and Mega Millions drawings in Pennsylvania were actually $25 million and $75 million, respectively. So what happened? The Washington Nationals' bullpen, that's what.

Evidently sometime either during the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday or in between games, a few anonymous members of the Nats' bullpen messed with the numbers to lead people to believe the jackpot was drastically higher. Not that $25 million is anything to shrug off, but it's quite a far cry from $705 million.

Not only is this funny, but it's a good example of what the bullpen has to do it entertain itself over the course of 162 games down there separated from reality. Kudos to whoever came up the idea and to the bullpen for executing it. Good stuff.
