Nationals Journal: July 29, 2007 - August 4, 2007

Stan Kasten is in the press box, and he is ANGRY

Some of the words uttered by Nationals President Stan Kasten just now can be printed. Others, I'm afraid, cannot. Kasten is concerned that the Nationals are getting blamed for something that -- he said quite loudly -- "IS NOT OUR...

Get this

Well, there was a rumor going around the Nationals' clubhouse that this was going to happen. Take a gander at the Cardinals' lineup: Eckstein -- 6 Edmonds -- 8 Rolen -- 5 Duncan -- 7 Spiezio -- 5 Encarnacion --...

The Lineup for Saturday

No new news yet. Jack McGeary will be here today, and anyone who wants to get a gander at first-round pick Ross Detwiler ought to head to Potomac either Wednesday or Thursday. I'll get you the exact day as soon...

Fun fun fun (and charity) over the weekend

So a little community service weekend post as you guys chew over the end of Friday's game (2-2 in the eighth right now). First off, the Nationals are having a Back to School Drive on Sunday, sponsored by the "First...

McGeary in the house

So I know I'm stepping all over all y'all's conversations, etc., but I figured I'd get some stuff out there during batting practice. Please feel free to keep those other discussions going. Jack McGeary, the high school pitcher from Massachusetts...

Detwiler update

So not to take away from the discussion of Zimmerman's defense, which I find intriguing, but here's a little update on the sixth overall pick in the draft, Ross Detwiler, the lefty from Missouri State who was making his fourth...

Zimmerman's glove

So last night Ronnie Belliard went 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles and Dmitri Young got his normal two hits in four at-bats and drove in a couple and Ryan Zimmerman chipped in by going 3 for 5...

John Patterson update

So John Patterson was in the clubhouse today. Patterson is obviously well-versed in talking about injuries, and he is usually very accomodating in explaining what he's going through and what sort of treatments he's receiving. But in his first appearance...

Some minor stuff

So even as these guys prepare for a sweep of the Reds - from whom they have taken five of six games this year - it's worth taking another look at the minors, isn't it? You may have seen the...

The Lineups

Just to whet your appetite tonight. It'll be interesting to see how John Lannan responds after being ejected and breaking Chase Utley's hand in his first outing last week. This is the 22-year-old's first start at RFK. Also, Nats lit...

The day after ... nothing

Sorry about the late post. Still knocking around the trade deadline stuff from yesterday. It's amazing how fast and furious stuff gets flying in the hours before the deadline -- all for naught. Quick comment about why I thought Bowden's...

No-trade postmortem: Bowden explains

So there was some late whispering that the Adam Dunn talks were alive down to the final hours, but that I don't know for absolute sure. They would have had to have a 72-hour negotiating window to try to get...

Nats stand pat at trade deadline

Official word is in: The Nationals have held onto everyone on their roster. Take a deep breath. The latest rumblings - and this stuff got wild fast - is that there may have been some talk of a three-way deal...

Here come the Diamondbacks

Coming up to an hour to go, and several places are starting to report that my earlier theory about Arizona being involved with the Cordero discussions. They're reporting Carlos Quentin, but I just heard a new theory: Carlos Gonzalez. He's...

Pieces starting to fall

SI.com is reporting that Eric Gagne is going to Boston if the Red Sox can convince him to waive his no-trade clause. That would eliminate, it would seem, any chance of Cordero or Rauch going there. With the Sox maybe...

Moving parts -- with three hours to go

It appears that Chad Cordero's destiny, and even that of Jon Rauch, could be tied up in the fate of the other key reliever on the market, Texas's Eric Gagne. The Mets and Red Sox appear hottest on him. The...

All's quiet?

Well, the Nationals are working at this, but someone told me late last night that they didn't have anything serious going. Scouts were still out last night, monitoring major and minor league games for last-minute information. Kasten and other officials...

Don't mean to distract from the trade discussions. Keep it rolling (and I'll be perhaps updating my story later tonight), but wanted to make sure you all heard about Shawn Hill's rehab start at Class A Potomac: 3 IP, 3...

Twenty-two hours to go

Just flew in from Albany (and boy are my arms tired ha ha ha) and putting out phone calls. I have heard of continued interest in Adam Dunn, but as we have discussed ad nauseum, the difference between interest and...

Cooperstown on a Sunday morning

What a place. What an amazing place. I'll get back to that in a minute. Obviously this crew knows the Dmitri deal finally was announced. I'm interested in exploring this more after we get past the trade deadline and we...
