If you've been following along with the Nationals this spring training, you've probably come across a few mentions of top pitching prospect Lucas Giolito and his baking. Giolito and his roommate at big league camp, catcher Spencer Kieboom, have posted pictures here and there of the pitcher's tasty creations. But this week, we got some good views of Giolito's banana bread.

Sharing is caring.
Meanwhile, while Giolito is in the kitchen working away, Kieboom and Trea Turner are keeping busy playing video games.
Longtime National and free agent Ian Desmond finally landed in a camp this spring after signing a one-year deal with the Rangers. You can check out our #TBT tribute to Desmond here, while Bryce Harper posted his own tribute on Instagram.

Desmond also thanked the Nationals and wished the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy the best.
Very cool, and very true. Best of luck to Desi in Texas. https://t.co/8ADt96Ray9-- Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) February 29, 2016
We wish only the best to Desmond as he continues his career in Texas, and we look forward to his return to Nationals Park.
ICYMI: Last week, Twitter added a GIF search option to their app. This is big news, espcially if you're like me and get great joy out of a properly used and timed GIF, becuase it makes it that much easier to add the fun graphics to your tweets.
Yesterday, Twitter launched a worldwide GIF party, and you can bet your bottom dollar we joined in the fun.
