Nationals Journal: April 29, 2007 - May 5, 2007

And that's a final!

Cubs 6, Nationals 4. Third loss in a row. Very winnable game. An unearned run. All those runners left on. Even in the ninth against Ryan Dempster, Ronnie Belliard hit a two-out single to left, bringing up Ryan Zimmerman as...

Leave the office now!

You could catch the end of the game at home, right? And what would you see if you got there? Perhaps the Nationals hitting with runners in scoring position. And you've seen how that movie turns out, right? In the...

So remember that lead?

Not so much anymore. Two-out buggaboo for Jason Bergmann. In the third, a one-out single to Soriano, who dribbled the ball just past a diving Bergmann. Groundout from Floyd to advance Soriano to second, the second out. Then ... "The...

Um, not to alarm you or anything ...

... but here's how the game has gone so far. Felipe Lopez triple to deep center. Ronnie Belliard grounder to second to score Lopez. (Nationals have now scored in back-to-back first innings.) Nats 1, Cubs 0 Ryan Zimmerman walk. (Zambrano...

Lineups and notes from Wrigleyville

Have I mentioned I like this place? Yes, it's a bit cool this time of year, but still. Day baseball in a packed park is wonderful. Love it. Talked to Soriano this morning. Guess what. He was smiling. Crazy, huh?...

Catching up on the trade, Soriano, etc.

Hey, sorry for the late post. I'm sure most of you won't see this till Friday morning, etc. (Isn't it great when the team has a Thursday off? And when that Thursday coincides with a new episode of "The Office,"...

A trade!! Nationals acquire Langerhans

The Nationals just announced that they have traded outfielder Chris Snelling to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for outfielder Ryan Langerhans, the former Atlanta Brave that was dealt to Oakland last week. This must be some sort of personal preference...

Expanded minors report

So I talked to Bob Boone, the guy in charge of player development for the Nationals (who also happens to be scouting for the upcoming June draft, etc.) about a couple of guys yesterday. One is John Lannan, a lefty...

Farm update to come

So I figured I'd use Wednesday, when we have a small minor league notebook in the $.35 edition (that I can't find on-line anywhere) to expand the discussion of the minors, which you folks seem to clamor for. I do,...

Lineups, etc.

Real quickly here. Talked to Church about getting hit by that Peavy pitch last night and then spiking his bat, which then led into Peavy pitching from the windup, Church swiping second, Austin Kearns singling him home with two outs,...

Didn't Make the Paper, Vol. IX

So if you're not interested in how sausage is made, stop reading now and tune in later tonight when I deliver some lineups. [First let me deliver a plug for Dave Sheinin's chat. If you're reading this between noon and...

A new cleanup man, and a new left fielder

I run into this problem a lot: I don't want to interrupt the discussion going on regarding the first post of the day, the big picture questions. But let's unveil the lineup here in San Diego. Anyone else staying up...

Through one month (almost), what do you think?

As the final day of April dawns, the time for the most common phrase in baseball's first month - "It's still early" - to go away has finally arrived. No, Ryan Zimmerman isn't likely to finish with a .236 average,...

Off the plate?

So did anyone notice, with runners on first and second and one out in a game the Mets led 1-0 in the bottom of the seventh, the 2-0 pitch to Chris Snelling? The ball appeared to be well off the...

Sunday lineups

Beautiful day for a ballgame today, which I think makes two of those for the year. On pace for 10 total nice weather days. New York Mets (14-8): Reyes -- 6 Wright -- 5 Beltran -- 8 Alou -- 7...
