Three Up, Three Down
This baseball season, we will be taking elements from the dearly departed MLB Sunday page and dropping them into Baseball Insider on a regular, weekly basis. Henceforth, Mondays will bring "Three Up, Three Down" -- an irreverent take on the local and national baseball zeitgeist. Here is the first installment:
Happy New Year's: Nats only team in baseball to travel south for opener. Nothing says Opening Day quite like 90-degree weather in a football stadium in Miami, does it?
"You have to believe": Manny Acta rallies troops with motivational message on eve of opener. But here's the rest of that sentence: "....that my job can be saved."
Biden: Vice President to throw out first pitch at Orioles' opener today. And here we thought the guy had a real talent for hitching himself to a winner.
OF glut: Nats break camp with five legit starting OFs, two of them unhappy. Makes us wistful for the good old days when an OF competition meant Nook Logan vs. Brandon Watson.
Zim's contract: Nats' 3B says no more contract talks after today. Team privately breathes sigh of relief: All that money is now earmarked for Stephen Strasburg anyway.
Jimbo: Ex-Nats GM Bowden yet to speak publicly
since being fired since resigning last month. Security in Miami said to be on lookout for middle-aged guy in track suit riding a red Segway.
