Nationals Journal: July 22, 2007 - July 28, 2007

Off to Cooperstown. Please hold down the fort.

So quite a performance from Mike Bacsik, no? I mean, seven innings from him is good anytime you can get it. But in the situation the Nationals are in -- what with the bullpen throwing 18-2/3 innings over the previous...

Lineup from Shea

Not much new. Conspiracy theory: Nats will announce Dmitri signing on Monday's off day. Just a thought. Washington: Lopez -- 6 Belliard -- 4 Zimmerman -- 5 Young -- 3 Church -- 7 Kearns -- 9 Schneider -- 2 Logan...

The future of Flores and Schneider -- and Bergmann to the D.L.

Well, Friday morning in Manhattan, a couple hours before taking the 7 train out to Flushing, and a bit of time to kill while waiting on a Dmitri Young announcement - which, as I said yesterday, I'm not sure will...

Lannan ejected!

So this is crazy. In the bottom of the fifth, John Lannan got Victorino to ground out. He then hit Chase Utley with a pitch that was up and in, and Utley didn't look too happy about it. One out,...

Lannan through four

Of course the Dmitri Young stuff is likely to be the big story of the day, but there is the matter of this guy John Lannan making his major league debut. So far, it's gone about as you'd expect. His...

Dmitri?

So there's a lot of whispering going on about Dmitri Young right now. The Nationals are definitely talking to him about an extension, but I'm hearing both sides. There has been, as I've said before, some internal lobbying to keep...

Good Morning! or, Good Morning?

Whew, that was some baseball last night. As you can read here, Ryan Church took the loss hard, and Manny Acta seemed more disappointed than usual. If you haven't seen the replay of Rollins's triple-turned-into-game-tying-four-base-romp, get yourself to a TV...

Lannan speaks

So just got off the phone with John Lannan, who is in fact slated to start tomorrow's matinee. He began the year with Class A Potomac, and there's no way he figured he'd be in the majors by the end...

Lineups, etc.

So Shawn Hill finished a simulated game this afternoon -- 35 pitches over 2.0 innings with Tony Batista in the box. When the clubhouse opens, I'll check on how he's doing. I think -- think -- that if he came...

Bergmann's hammy, and the arrival of John Lannan?

The prospects, it appears, are on the way. Read on. So a few leftover items from last night. And a reminder that I chat at 1 p.m. But first, Jason Bergmann: Hamstrings are, indeed, delicate muscles when it comes to...

Uh-oh

The following events just occured in the bottom of the third at Citizens Bank Park: 1. Brian Schneider walked. 2. With one out, Jason Bergmann bunted. It was not a good bunt. Schneider was out easily at second. Bergmann was...

Dmitri back in the lineup, and a little Frank

So Dmitri Young returns to the field tonight, as Manny Acta predicted. Your lineups from Citizens Bank Park (where there are no parking garages blocking the view of the Philadelphia skyline): Washington: Lopez -- 6 Belliard -- 4 (Taking his...

Who to trade? Who to keep?

Sitting on the Acela to Philadelphia, and ran into Bob Carpenter and Debbi Taylor from MASN, so I have some traveling companions. Lots of discussion of the trade market, etc., as you can imagine. So the reviews on this Belliard...

Belliard signs with Nats!

The Nationals have signed infielder Ronnie Belliard to a two-year extension beyond this season. I don't have terms yet, but will get them pronto. TERMS UPDATE: A major leauge source with knowledge of the deal says it's a two-year, $3.5...

Too quiet -- so let's turn to Toby Keith

Have talked to a few scouts and execs today, and I'm getting this sense that things aren't ready to explode. The Nationals scouts are all over the place -- scouting the minors and the majors, with some coming to Washington...

An off day -- but not for Jim Bowden

First off, thanks for all the suggestions on T-shirt slogans. I think I will, as some suggested, run a poll of some of my favorites later in the week, and maybe we can get a winner that way. In other...

Sunday lineups, and a question

Can the Nationals win three of four from Colorado? I talked to Jamey Carroll the first day in, and he said his team was thinking it had to take three of four because they consider themselves in the playoff race...
