Friday Night Trivia

Take a crack at 'em. I'll have the answers for ya in comments sometime.

All questions are since the team moved...

1) 8 Nationals have played in all three seasons. Name them.

2) Who has the most career homers?

3) Who are the top 3 hitters for average with a minimum of 100 PA?

4) Who has the most career games played?

5) Who has struck out the most?

6) Who has the longest hitting streak? (Would you believe that Cristian Guzman had the third longest in April of '05?!?)

7) Who has the most consecutive games without a homer?

8) Which pitcher has the most career Ks?

9) Which pitcher has the most career wins?

10) Which pitcher has the most career losses?


  • 1) Patterson, Zimmerman, Church, Rauch, Cordero, Schneider, Ayala, _____

    2) Assuming this means who has the most career homers of folks that have played for the team since it moved, I'm torn between Soriano and Tony Batista, and I'm going with Fonzy on principle.

    3) Dmitri, Nick Johnson, Vidro

    4) Batista

    5) While on the Nats? Schneider

    6) Jeffrey Hammonds :) (meaning, I realize I have no clue)

    7) The Right Honorable Jamey Carroll

    8) Astacio

    9) Livan!

    10) Tempted to go with Mike Stanton, but Ramon Ortiz

  • Forgot to go back and finish 1:

    Did Traber throw at the end of 05?

    By Blogger Sam, at 7/20/2007 9:34 PM  

  • 1) Ayala comes in on a technicality. I wasn't counting him since he didn't pitch last year.

    2) yep

    3) Dmitri is #1. 2 and 3 are a bit harder... both are one-season guys

    7) yep

    9) yep.

    So 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 are stil in play!

  • Right -- Ayala died in the WBC. I recalled him pitching but spaced that.

    By Blogger Sam, at 7/20/2007 10:02 PM  

  • I've already discussed #1 and #4 with Chris on IM, so I'll abstain there.

    3: Young's already been covered. Daryle Ward and... I hope it's not Soriano, he only hit like .280 last year. But I have nothing better.

    5: Ryan Church (or do you mean as a pitcher?)

    6: I think we discussed this one too, the other day, so I'll pass.

    8: Career Ks... as in overall, or as a Nat? For the former, I really don't know. For the latter, I'll go with Patterson.

    10: Tony Armas, Jr.

  • For #3: Has Escobar had 100 PAs? He hit the snot out of the ball last year.

    By Blogger John, at 7/20/2007 10:20 PM  

  • 1. not Ayala, but Bergmann, and someone out of the pen either Traber or maybe Schroder. But Bergmann is definately right

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7/20/2007 11:19 PM  

  • 3. Just taking a shot but, Alex Escobar, and probably wrong but I am just trying to think of one one season positional players who were not entirely terrible (apologies to Alfonso) but Preston Wilson? if not Livo could really hit

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7/20/2007 11:25 PM  

  • 4. Has to be Schneider

    5. if pos. player Schneider
    if pitch Patterson didn't he strike out like 13 in seven last year? no others starters with enough continuity to match him.

  • 6. I am gonna through another wild one out there and say Vidro (definately wrong)


    10. Patterson

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7/20/2007 11:31 PM  

  • 1) No one said Watson yet!

    By Anonymous Andrew Stebbins, at 7/21/2007 1:22 AM  

  • Sorry for the double post but my guesses for #5 are Castilla, Nick Johnson, or Ryan Zimmerman.

    Thats all Ive got

    By Anonymous Andrew Stebbins, at 7/21/2007 1:28 AM  

  • 1. I think this has been determined now as Brian Schneider, John Patterson, Chad Cordero, Ryan Church, Brandon Watson, Jon Rauch, Ryan Zimmerman, and Jason Bergmann. My initial guess (before reading comments) was that but with Traber instead of Bergmann.

    3. My initial guess was Dmitri, Ronnie Belliard, and Nick Johnson, but since they're one-season guys, I'll stick with Belliard and throw in Escobar was mentioned by a previous anonymous.

    4. Stanton

    5. My answer agrees with anonymous: Schneider.

    6. I'll second Vidro.

    8. Livan
    10. Livan

  • 1) I think you got all 8 now. The surprise ones are Watson and Bergmann

    3) Dmitri is #1. Daryle Ward is #2. Escobar's a great guess, but he's _just_ below the cutoff. The third is a guy from this season.

    4) Anon. is right. It's Schneider, which is surprising, but isn't at the same time!

    5) Is a position player... It's not Church. He's #2. And it's not Schneider. The answer will likely surprise.

    6) Vidro's a good guess. He's tied for third-longest. Hint: Same answer as 5.

    8) Is definitely Patterson.

    10) Is Tony Armas... edging out Livan.

    So one part of 3 and 5 and 6 are left!

  • How can you say that Anonymous is right when Anonymous already posted the correct answer for #5?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7/21/2007 11:41 AM  

  • 5. Wilkerson

    By Anonymous Andrew Stebbins, at 7/21/2007 11:44 AM  

  • Nope. Not Wilkerson.

    Man, you guys are almost as protective of the right answer as Bob and Don were of him last night. HINT HINT.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 7/21/2007 12:29 PM  

  • 5 & 6 are Zimmerman. Belliard is the 3rd answer to #3.

    By Anonymous Simon Oliver Lockwood, at 7/21/2007 1:40 PM  

  • How about Rick Short for #3? I still remember seeing his first Major League hit... we gave him a big round of applause. I believe he tore up the joint enough to make us regret it when he got injured and then later signed with a Japanese team.


    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7/23/2007 2:52 PM  

  • Sorry... forgot and left you guys hanging!

    Short didn't have enough AB's. SOL got the answers. Belliard, Zimmerman and Zimmerman!
