Zimmerman's D

So you might recall that Ryan Zimmerman committed a key error in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Phillies. Those of you who get home delivery would have a notebook in it that addressed the issue. Those on-line readers and folks...

McGeary: Why it's significant

So at this point, the Nationals have announced it, and it's just up to us to sort it out. The nitty-gritty: Washington has granted a $1.8 million bonus to left-handed pitcher Jack McGeary, a high schooler from Newton, Mass., who...

McGeary deal, Part 2

So the deal, according to sources, is for $1.8 million. That's first-round money for a sixth-round pick, showing that the Nationals were not going to succumb to industry pressure to stay in line. This is fascinating on a lot of...

Nats lineup, and a Detwiler update

So Ross Detwiler made his second start for Class A Potomac today, and the results were pretty darned rocky. He went 2-2/3 innings, allowing eight hits, seven runs (six earned) with two walks and three strikeouts. This development stuff is...

McGeary: Not done yet

Before we get to last night's game (Shawn Hill, Ryan Zimmerman), let me just make clear that this Jack McGeary situation is not over. The Nationals are in this, and the kid - refresher course: sixth-round pick from Roxbury Latin...

Draft news ...

Nationals have called a press conference for 4:30 p.m. with the baseball operations department. And you know what? That entire department -- and even some outside it -- seems to have clammed up. My suspicion is they're going to announce...

The clock is ticking

So some Nats stuff in the $.35er this morning, starting with Steve Yanda's profile of Ross Detwiler. Good info in there for those of you interested in what's on the way. I also had a conversation yesterday with Shawn Hill,...
