Nationals Journal: June 24, 2007 - June 30, 2007

Saturday bits and pieces

Saturday. Your day off. A day when I give much of the Journal staff time to head to the beach, particularly when I'm on the road. (Don't call the Journal offices between now and July 5. You'll just get our...

Interesting lineup change

So this could cause a stir, no? Langerhans -- 8 Belliard -- 4 Zimmerman -- 5 Young -- 3 Kearns -- 9 Church -- 7 Lopez -- 6 Schneider -- 2 Chico -- 1 You gotta admit: It makes sense....

The 2007 All-Stars Against The Nationals

So with the all-star teams to be announced on Sunday, and with Dmitri Young as the Nationals' clear choice, I got to thinking about the Nationals' own all-star team. No, not some group of former Nats that might make good...

Why does it feel like the bottom's about to fall out?

Weren't the Braves the reeling team when the Nationals came to town? They were a .500 team that had lost five straight, shut out in four of them. Didn't last week's complete collapse against the Tigers occur for one reason...

Behind the move

Just a couple of things to touch on, but I'll leave most of it to what you want to discuss in today's 1 p.m. chat. I think I'll do that from the Starbucks at the Lenox Square Mall. Such is...

Fick in the house

For those of you who haven't tuned in yet -- or aren't planning to -- I'd point out that because Robert Fick isn't activated for tonight's game, he can't sit in the dugout. So he's going to sit in with...

Two intriguing situations (with lineups added)

Washington: Langerhans -- 8 Lopez -- 6 Zimmerman -- 5 Young -- 3 Kearns -- 9 Church -- 7 Belliard -- 4 Schneider -- 2 Bacsik -- 1 Atlanta: Escobar -- 4 Renteria -- 6 C. Jones -- 5 A....

Guzman likely out for year

I'm going to get this on the Web site, but figured you guys might want it first: By Barry Svrluga Washington Post Staff Writer ATLANTA - Washington Nationals shortstop Cristian Guzman, enjoying a renaissance year after two years of injuries...

Lineups, but more news to come

So much for educated guesses. This is interesting. Here's today's lineup. Watson - 8 Lopez - 6 Zimmerman - 5 Young - 3 Kearns - 9 Church - 7 Belliard - 4 Schneider - 2 Bergmann - 1 Still 90...

Down goes Guzman

Nats trade for Speigner. No, really ...

So the Levale Speigner situation is cleared up. The Nationals made a deal with the Twins to obtain their own pitcher. Strange, huh? Thus are the vagaries of Rule 5. The Nationals traded Class AAA outfielder Darnell McDonald, the former...

The sun's still shining, right?

That, my friends, is one tough loss. I thought when this homestand started that a 2-4 record would be just fine, an OK showing. Now, Jason Simontacchi must beat Jake Westbrook for that to happen - and a chance to...
