2012 Nationals Player Profile: Ross Detwiler

Image

Ross Detwiler has worn this for seven years now. Weird thing is, only part of that time did he think he was a dog. For the first few years he had a weird fetish.

When Ross Detwiler first came up to the bigs, he was told he needed a nickname. Looking at his name, it’s not hard to come up with Rottweiler. Or rather Rotwiler, by removing “ss De.” Just think of it being spelled by someone with the mental capacity of a first grader or Sean Burnett. EDIT: Sorry for being redundant there.

So ever since Detwiler has been called Rotwiler, he’s developed a more fierce attitude on the mound, intimidating opponents with his “bite.” However he has also developed multiple habits that all point towards him thinking he is actually a dog.

Second Spring Training Game: Nationals vs. Astros (aka Asstros)

Image

Today's loser, Ross Detwiler, telling surprise visitor Ivan Rodriguez that he just lost to the Houston Astros. Pudge was not happy to have his poop interrupted however, as seen above.

The Washington Nationals followed up on a disappointingly pathetic 3-0 win vs. the Georgetown Hoyas with an even more disappointingly pathetic 3-1 loss to the Houston Astros. Said the Mayor of Houston, “It’s nice to finally have that one win that many people were projecting us to get this season. We can only exceed expectations from here.”

Current National and black man Edwin Jackson, and former National and non-black man Livan Hernandez had quite the duel going until they were both pulled after two innings due to a septic leak in the stadium. After further inspection, it was found out that Livan just smelled bad and all returned to their seats.

Ross Detwiler took the loss, while Kyle Weiland got the win. The Houston Astros plan to unveil Weiland’s bronze statue outside of Minute Maid Park this Tuesday.
