Who's the Nationals' Hottest Hottie?

During our blogger night at the ballpark, I'm sure you imagine that there was all kinds of talk about the relative merits of VORP and wOBA other deep baseball esoterica.

There was indeed some of that. But one of the most heated debate points was over this: who's hotter? Ryan Zimmerman or Craig Stammen? And by "hot," I do not mean, "who's doing well lately." I mean attractive.

Now, far be it from me to question the judgment of the We've Got Heart ladies or Cheryl from Nationals News Network, but I'm sorry. Stammen is clearly the best-looking Nationals player. In fact, he may be the most attractive man in all of Major League Baseball.

I mean seriously, look at him. He could play the male lead in any Hollywood romantic comedy. Hell, put a wig on him and he could play the female lead.

But to resolve the issue, I put it to you. Who's our hottest hottie? And for all the straight dudes on the site, don't be insecure. In NatsTown, it's ok for a dude to appreciate a nice-looking dude.

El Rey will take the challenge because I’m comfortable with my manhood and I’ll admit I go to bed with more skin care cream on my face than Mrs. El Rey. Craig Stammen’s dreamy eyes wins it over Z-Man. Some of the Washington Capitals are good looking guys, too.

Steven,

I said it in the press box, and I stand by my answer. I vote Ryan Zimmerman (not to take anything away from Craig, of course).

Stammen is a stud.

Zimm looks like he's ready to take the role of Bruce Wayne or James Bond in that pic...it's hard to top that.

At the NatsFest last winter I was standing with a small group of others around Zimmerman while he was getting interviewed by someone in the Presidents Club. We were maybe 10 feet away from him. A young woman right in Zim's demographic says to me "who's that?" in a rather disinterested way.

If there is a twentysomething woman who's enough of a fan to come to an event like that and she doesn't even recognize Zimmerman when she's 10 feet away from him, he can't be all that hot.

Stammen. Not to be mean, but Zimmerman has some thing very unattractive about him...don't know exactly what it is though

My wife says Zimmerman

My secretary says Detwiler

Zimm's contract makes him more attractive, or is that against the rules? Otherwise, Stammen is tops (figuratively of course). Did I just type that?

dcbatgirl said...

Seriously? Stammen is hotter than Zim, but where is your photo of Wil Nieves?

Is this conversation limited to single guys? (Is Stammen single?)

Stammen is WAY hotter than Zimmerman. Before I read your item, I said to my husband last week that Stammen has the most gorgeous face of any of the Nationals. My husband agreed.

Now, if we put bags over the players' heads, Elijah Dukes clearly has the hottest body.

This is the awesomest post of the year.

I vote for my daughter who says Ryan Zimmerman is the winner although if I needed golfing partner I choose Stammen!
