Nationals Journal: March 11, 2007 - March 17, 2007

It's Simontaaaaaachi, with a flat "a"

You might want to get to know how to pronounce Jason Simontacchi, because my guess is he'll be in your starting rotation come Opening Day. (Keep in mind that before the team even gathered here, Brian Schneider told me that...

Get ready for more of this

Ever get the feeling that Zimmerman's going to be the major reason to come ot the park this summer? I've been here all spring, and I certainly do. So we're headed to the bottom of the fourth here. Cards starter...

Get on the bus, Gus

This was supposed to be the day that Cristian Guzman and Felipe Lopez worked together in the middle infield in a game for the first time. Problem: Lopez isn't here. Lopez lives in suburban Orlando, and he spent the off...

Earth to Jupiter

Nationals took yesterday off, so Nationals Journal did too. Apologies for no advance notice in that regard. I'm sure it ruined your day(s). (Advance warning today: May be mentally taking it off. In Jupiter now. Have two-hour drive to Orlando...

Zimm!

I've only been down here for one month (anniversary of arrival is today), but I'm starting to get the feeling that this kid Ryan Zimmerman has a shot at making the team. He's a right-handed hitting third baseman. I'll check...

Bottom of the fourth

As I said earlier, a good test for Shawn Hill today. The first batter he faced? That would be Jose Reyes, ripping a triple. Two batters in, the Mets had a 1-0 lead. But have no fear, fans of a...

Sorry, busy morning

Running around a bit today. Update on yesterday: Nationals blow two-run lead in bottom of ninth to lose to Dodgers. Chris Schroder, who was throwing too many fastballs, according to Manager Manny Acta. (Read my notebook for a hair more.)...

Sporadic and Unreliable Update No. 2

So Michalak got himself in some trouble in the third. But he didn't have much help. He walked Valdez to start the inning. (Leadoff walk to No. 9 hitter: Good idea?) But then Freeman hit a blooper to left that...

Sporadic and Unreliable Update No. 1

So Chris Michalak got two outs with a man on in the bottom of the first, but Jeff Kent touched him for a two-run bomb to left. Dodgers 2-0 after one. The Nationals got one back in the top of...

Welcome to Dodgertown

Not much commentary here today. I'll give you a few updates, no doubt. But there's a certain television program I want to watch at around 6 p.m. The one day of the spring when I'll take Bracketology over baseball. Dodgertown:...
