Nationals Journal: May 6, 2007 - May 12, 2007

News during the off day

Sorry, but I got caught up with actual, real-life work for the $.35 edition today. But here's a few tiny bits of news from Thursday. 1. Jerome Williams threw well in his rehabilitation start for Class AAA Columbus. Six innings,...

End of road trip thoughts

When John Patterson beat Jake Peavy on April 30, the day this road trip started in San Diego, there was some reason for optimism. That night, Patterson won his first game since last April, and he was able to maintain...

End of the road

So this 10-day, nine-game odyssey ends today, and I'm not sure there's a soul in the clubhouse who isn't happy about that. A disastrous trip, and not really because the Nationals played wretched baseball. Sure, they have at times. But...

Pregame moves are in

The major development -- and I guessed wrong on this one -- is that reliever Ryan Wagner will go to the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right rotator cuff. We'll get to that in a second. The other...

Some Moves to Come Pregame

We already have one today with Chad Cordero put on the bereavement list. Winston Abreu replaces him. But a bit of a surprise: It appears there will be two moves before the game. 1B/3B Tony Batista, the 33-year-old, is being...

Cordero to Take Bereavement Leave to Visit Dying Grandmother

Some sad news this morning. The Nationals placed closer Chad Cordero on the bereavement list, a move made so the 25-year-old could return to his home town of Chino, Calif., and be with his dying grandmother. Cordero said this morning...

News and notes, in-game edition

A few small things: Talked to Jason Simontacchi this afternoon by phone. Though the club hasn't officially announced it (they'll do that either after the game tonight or tomorrow), he'll be the pitcher tomorrow. No surprises. "I'm elated," he said....

The Chief, and the future: What's next?

So Chad Cordero is clearly, clearly struggling, and the disturbing part is that he's no longer sure what's wrong. I think it was rather easy to figure out what was happening a couple of years ago, when he was relying...

Coupla things

First off, apologies for not posting more on the weekend. Our numbers drop way down on weekends, so I tend to slow down, too. It'll pick up again next week. A few things, however, can't wait. Patterson: Had an MRI...
