There’s been quite a lot of hubbub in the media about the engagement announcement Monday from Cutter Dykstra and The Sopranos actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Dykstra is an infielder with the Washington Nationals, playing recently for their Hagerstown Suns farm team. Still, that’s enough of a connection for us to begin to wonder what’s in the water at Nationals Park. Love Potion #9?

There’s a romantic roll happening, with weddings already done, in the works, or rumored for five other Nats players—seven if you count the dear, departed Michael Morse, who married in the fall but has since been traded to the Seattle Mariners, and Edwin Jackson, who married this month at about the same time he signed a four-year, $52 million contract with the Chicago Cubs.

Still with Washington is Ryan Zimmerman, who married Heather Downen about three weeks ago. Ross Detwiler married late last year. Jordan Zimmermann is married. Also engaged are Craig Stammen and Corey Brown
