Thursday, GM Jim Bowden said Shawn Hill, out since May 11 and on the DL since May 14 with left shoulder and right elbow problems, would get through his start at Class AAA Columbus and start for the Nationals on...

Shawn Hill's return delayed

So after going over reports of Shawn Hill's five-inning, one-run start for Class AAA Columbus last night, Nationals GM Jim Bowden decided it would be better if Hill have one more start in the minors. "We need him to command...

Chico vs. Livo

So pitchers who were traded for each other face each other tonight in the desert. Let's look at the stats for Matt Chico and Livan Hernandez: Record: MC 5-6, LH 7-7 ERA: MC 4.76, LH 4.83 Starts: MC 23,...

Hill, Detwiler and a win to wrap up the circus

So the Nationals take this 3-1 victory to get a split in San Francisco. I chose, as those of you who read the $.35 edition (or the free version here online) to write about the bullpen in the gamer. Five...

Through five

So Joel Hanrahan's slugging percentage for his career is now 1.167. Perhaps he should hit fifth? Hanrahan has labored on the mound in this, his third major league start. He's thrown 80-something pitches through five innings, but the lame Giants...

Lineups from by the Bay

Finishing up this series here in San Francisco with an afternoon tilt. I'll try to give you updates throughout the game -- or as long as you're still at work. Bonds not playing today. Nationals really want this one. Definitely...

Dmitri Young update

So Young said after the game that he indeed tweaked his hamstring coming out of the box after his first (and only) at-bat. "I felt some tightness running down to first base," he said. "Manny took me out for precautionary...

Dmitri Young exits Wednesday's game

So Dmitri Young came out of the box slowly when he grounded to shortstop in the first inning. He played that frame in the field, but when the Nationals took the field for the bottom of the second, Robert Fick...

Back to our regularly scheduled program

Let's put Bonds aside for a moment. We've played rounds of Guess the Rotation since spring training, and with our game for Sept. 1 still pending, I don't want to start another one officially right now. But the reality is...

Didn't Make the Paper, Volume Bonds

So there's almost too much to get your arms around with Tuesday night's events, but here's our shot with Sheinin's brilliant take on A1 and my take on Bacsik and his dad kind of meeting at history. Pretty interesting stuff....

The Lineups for Bacsik vs. Bonds

The lineups, and then a funny story. Washington: Lopez -- 6 (came in as a defensive replacement last night) Belliard -- 4 Zimmerman -- 5 Young -- 3 Kearns -- 9 Church -- 7 Schneider -- 2 Logan -- 8...

Minor league update

So while the Vermont pitchers continue to be ridiculous - and my goodness, they seem to win 2-0 every night, and Jim Bowden was telling me yesterday that Manager Darnell Coles is doing a fantastic job - I thought in...

Calling history

Now that's a tough loss. Tougher still? With the game in extra innings, it didn't make any $.35 editions, which I can't stand. So you have to go to that crazy "World Wide Web" thing and find it on washingtonpost.com....

Frank's here (plus your lineups)

Well, Bonds was just introduced, and man, did he get a huge cheer. Some minor stuff: Lopez out of the lineup. Acta says he's day-to-day. Might be able to play tomorrow. (Right knee tendinitis, if you recall from Sunday.) Anyway,...

Zimmerman: National League co-Player of the Week

So I don't want to detract from the discussion about the Bonds ball and Austin Kearns (or, for that matter, Ryan Church or Nook Logan, if Bonds goes oppo or straightaway). But some actual news: Ryan Zimmerman has been named...

What would you do with 756?

So really quickly, before I board jetBlue 315 to Oakland (from Dulles - that 4:30 a.m. taxi was refreshing): You might have noticed the Nationals' six-game winning streak, the perfect homestand, and the statistics of Dmitri Young and Ryan Zimmerman...

With 52 left, have your expectations changed?

Well, I hope most of you got to see the better part of that game last night. This MASN fiasco is frustrating - beyond frustrating, to be honest. There are lots of kinks in the entire Nationals' operation, but...
