Nationals Journal: May 13, 2007 - May 19, 2007

Bergmann to the DL

Just when you thought it couldn't get much worse, the Nationals put Jason Bergmann on the 15-day disabled list this afternoon. Tomorrow, they are expected to recall lefty Mike Bacsik from Class AAA Columbus, and he'll face the Orioles tomorrow...

So right, but so wrong

This should be the high point of the season for the Nationals, right? Washington is playing .500 ball (14-14) against the National League East, their own division that includes some pretty darn good teams. Problem: The Nationals are 1-12 against...

Just when you thought you could rejoice

Well, the Nationals beat the Braves, 4-3, Thursday afternoon. They took three of four from a team that arrived here in first place. They have won six of seven on this homestand. And the (somewhat) hated Orioles come to RFK...

In the fourth

Nationals' first hit was from Matt Chico. Second hit was from Felipe Lopez, breaking an 0-for-13 drought. But nothing across against Chuck James so far. Chico allowed the first two hitters he faced -- Diaz and Renteria -- to hit...

What a relief (lineups added edition)

So pretty stellar job last night by the bullpen, no? In case you're counting, that's 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB (I repeat: 0 BB) and 7 K. All that has been asked of the pitching...

Another pitcher down

So Jerome Williams is the next pitcher headed (back) to the disabled list, what with his shoulder problem last night. The Nationals opened the season with a rotation of John Patterson, Shawn Hill, Matt Chico, Williams and Jason Bergmann. They...

What to make of Jason Bergmann

Some left-over bits and pieces from a very enjoyable night at the ballpark last night: I've said it before and I'll say it (too many times) again, but this season is about gathering pieces for the future. Some will be...

Are you watching?

If you're not, please do. Not a bad little ballgame going on here. Nationals 1, Braves 0, through five-and-a-half. That's all I'm sayin'. And the rest of you: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

Shawn Hill update and your lineups

So Shawn Hill, as we said before, went on the disabled list today. The interesting news is that it's more because of his banged-up left shoulder, which he said has a torn labrum, not his right elbow, which he described...

What does a sweep mean?

For now, of course, it means saving face and building some momentum and giving the 20,000 or so folks who come out nightly a reason for hope, particularly with seven games remaining in the homestand. (Attendance for games against the...

Where were you when ...

... Ryan Zimmerman hit his third game-ending blow against the Marlins in his brief career? We'll get to that. First, kudos to soccer stud Steve Goff, who managed not to question Manny Acta's alignment, calling for a 2-4-4 or some...
