Denard Span has transformed into Barry Bonds. Well not quite. But the Nationals outfielder has hit 3 homeruns in his last 5 games including a 2 HR game on Monday night in LA against the Dodgers. Span took Roberto Hernandez deep twice in the ballgame. When the game was over, a Nats victory, all of the talk was about Span's recent surge of power. Here is what Denard had to say about where his power came from (unlikely restaurant chain), and what he expects MLB officials to do to him tomorrow. But first, the Michael Jordan shrug:
After the game, Span (compared to Babe Ruth by Phil Wood who called him the Spanbino) spoke with Dan Kolko of MASN about some of the comments his Nats teammates have been making about his homers. Span said they were joking he was going to get tested for PEDs.
In the locker room Span let all the reporters know where he might have picked up the extra power for the game:
Span will look to hit a few more homers against Clayton Kershaw Tuesday night against the Dodgers...
