Nationals Journal: April 1, 2007 - April 7, 2007

Didn't Make the Paper, Volume V

Press box temperature when I walked in: 48 degrees. God help anyone coming out here tonight. Much hallabaloo about last night's DirecTV/MASN snafu. Please read one of the many independent blogs about this fiasco (Capitol Punishment, the Ballpark Guys message...

Lineups first: Arizona: Byrnes -- 9 Callaspo -- 6 Hudson -- 4 Tracy -- 5 Jackson -- 3 Hairston -- 7 Young -- 8 Montero -- 2 Owings -- 1 Washington: Lopez -- 6 Snelling -- 7 Zimmerman -- 5...

Didn't Make the Paper, Vol. IV -- and, finally, a chat

A bit brisk at the old yard last night. This clearly is not helping crowds -- 16,017 last night (remember, that's tickets sold, not turnstiles moved) was the smallest since baseball returned to Washington in 2005. Old low: Last July...

Didn't Make the Paper, Vol. III

(I'm going to really have to study my Roman numerals as the season goes on.) So apparently, pigs can fly and all that stuff. Nats win! Nats win! Thuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh Nationals win! BREAKING NEWS UPDATE, 12:33 P.M. (Didn't want to make...

An accomplishment

Extra! Extra!! Marlins don't score in first inning! Rookie left-hander Matt Chico allows two-out single to God ... I mean, Miguel Cabrera, but gets out of inning. Problem: Cody Ross hits two-run homer on the first pitch he saw in...

Didn't Make the Paper, Vol. II

So last night's mess is behind us, and for whatever reason I decided to build my whole game story around Kory Casto's first major league hit, which came in the midst of a 9-3 debacle. As Stan Kasten knows, I'm...

Guzman to DL, too

So now it's official -- a quarter of the Nationals intended eight everyday players are on the disabled list having played a combined nine innings or so. Jim Bowden just said that tests on shortstop Cristian Guzman revealed a grade...

And your Logan-less lineup

With Nook on DL (see below) and Kory Casto up, we have an interesting development with the lineup: Lopez -- 4 Casto -- 7 Zimmerman -- 5 Kearns -- 9 Young -- 3 Schneider -- 2 Church -- 7 Wilson...

Logan to DL

And let the shuttle flights between Columbus and Washington begin. The Nationals just announced that center fielder Nook Logan has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with what the club is calling a left foot strain. That means Kory...

Didn't Make The Paper, Vol. I

So as the Journal evolves into something that can sustain itself during the regular season -- which I'm not sure it can, but whatever -- I figure it might be worth dealing with little things that aren't significant enough to...

M*A*S*H unit already?

So Logan's injury was to his left foot. X-rays were negative. He'll have an MRI later today on what is being called a hyper-extended left foot, and we'll have more information on him tomorrow. And then, in the bottom of...

Logan injured, Patterson out

Already 4-0 Marlins, and we have a bit of a development. In the the top of the fourth, Dan Uggla just ripped one to straightaway center field, and we got to see why they keep Nook Logan around. He went...

Patterson shaky, plus "Sophomore of the Year" Battle

So John Patterson doesn't appear to have his best stuff today. He's topping out at 90 mph, but his curveball doesn't appear to have much snap. He allowed a run in the first on Mike Jacobs's opposite-field single to left...

We're in the midst of pregame intros

MASN's Bob Carpenter doing the honors right now. There's a band in the middle of the field and a guy whose head looks like a vaccuum-cleaner attachment, but I'm told he's a "beefeater." There are, very disappointingly, clouds appearing in...

Life begins on Opening Day (now with lineups at the bottom)

Or so says esteemed colleague Thomas Boswell (henceforth referred to by the Journal only as "Boz") who, within a matter of hours, will be seated to my right here at RFK Stadium. In looking out over the field here at...
