What You Need to Know, Non-Redskins Edition

Skins stuff below, after I steel myself to read 973 stories about Jason Campbell and Mark Brunell when I have time.

The young Nats will have MLB's youngest skipper, who started really young. Zim loses out on ROY (but shrugs off the result), leaving assistant GM Bob Boone at a loss for words. The AL ROY, meanwhile, is Virginian Justin Verlander, although the award doesn't necessarily mean much. And the Cubs really want Soriano, whose first name Stan Kasten cannot spell.

Maryland's freshmen guards are improving, and ex-Terp Travis Garrison of the L.A. D-Fenders has his trial postponed. Gilbert shows up after a Georgetown practice and a writer is worried about the Hoyas' backcourt. Wizards' prospect Oleksiy Pecherov is hurt. And, in a great video-game interview, Gilbert says Super Mario Bros. is the best game and that he makes virtual Gilbert shoot 100 times a game.

D.C.'s most successful team, the "up-and-coming" Caps, win again despite a storm of shots. Players aren't satisfied, and Kolzig is in a major zone. Plus, some dude in England is a huge Caps fan.

The Cubbies want Soriano to play center field? They're missing out on a couple of the finer points of baseball:

1. A centerfielder gets a lot of balls hit to him, and he'll need to catch them.

2. Soriano just gets by in left field. And occasionally forgets to catch the ball.

I'm not knocking Soriano's play in LF last year, it was his first ever, and he was adapting quite well. But CF is an elevation in importance.

Seth Davis is great, and I'm not just saying that because he went to Bullis.

The best professional sports team in DC right now is the C-A-P-S Caps...Caps...Caps... jump on the bandwagon and enjoy the ride, best start in 15 years, and it will only get better when Backstrom joins us next year from Sweden, where he is leading the Swedish league in scoring by the way.

Bring on the Bruins tomorrow night at the 'ol phone booth!

Lets Go Caps!!

DC United midfielder Brian Carroll has a trial (tryout to the non-soccer folks) with Alemannia Aachen of the German Bundesliga.

Hey Dan,

Could you break/leak the news of the DC United protected list for Friday's expansion draft?

I am thoroughly impressed with the performance of the Caps so far this season (with a couple nights of exception, of course), and am encouraged to know that the players are still trying to strive for more.

Here's hoping they continue to take care of business at home, and forge a three (and maybe, dare we dream, four?) game winning streak.

Also, nice link to the Peerless, sir!
