Nationals Journal: June 3, 2007 - June 9, 2007

Bonus draft coverage

Draft notes as we wait for Northwest 557 to Minneapolis. In an ideal world, all this would have been posted earlier, but I had that silly game to cover, and it even involved a statement by the manager, the second...

Ross Detwiler

So anyone who really cares already knows that the Nationals selected Missouri State left-hander Ross Detwiler with the sixth pick in the major league draft. (And anyone who cares about that also probably cares that Chad Cordero just gave up...

Pregame Potpourri

UPDATE: Dmitri Young just hit a two-out, two-run homer in the first to give the Nationals a 2-0 lead. You want some random Dmitri Young facts (besides the fact he showed up this morning in an expensive suit that was...

Quick update

Homestand ends today. Sun is blaring out here right now. Grass being mowed. We'll see you in a week-and-a-half after this one, following stops in Minnesota, Baltimore and Toronto. Draft begins at 2 p.m. First time it'll be on live...

Patterson update

Doesn't it seem that, on a day like today, the current players are almost the third-most important topic? You've got the tickets for the new park (and I can tell you that the guys in my group seem very excited...

Back from the park, now at RFK

So I didn't have time to stick around for the complete tour (I go down there every two weeks and check it out), and I'm now back at RFK. Some impressions: Stan Kasten did the speaking when I was around...

Where are my seats? And how much will they cost?

As frustrating as last night's loss was - Tony Batista running through the stop sign, and Cristian ".324" Guzman following with a triple - there really are two significant questions about this franchise this season, and they'll be partially answered...

Stan Kasten is here saying ...

... that they're absolutely trying to play. Try try try. Lots of Little Leaguers here. It's actually not raining right now. They're working on the area around home plate, but the tarp's still on. Also, the Padres changed their lineup....

Rain, rain, go away

I'm not sure, but maybe you can help. Is it a good sign when the tunnel between the Nationals' clubhouse and the dugout is already stacked with sand bags? Mull it over. I, myself, can't figure out how they're going...
