Nationals Journal: August 19, 2007 - August 25, 2007

Cordero's future

I'm going to break this down, likely for a post tomorrow morning, but I've got a few things to take care of before I can get into anything in depth. But there are a couple things to think about in...

Position by position: First base (With lots of news tidbits now added)

Part two of our occasional series focuses on one of the positions I find most confusing for the Nationals. Let's go over the players first. Nick Johnson Age: 28 Contract: Three years, $16.5 million, with $5.5 million due in both...

Lannan, Cordero, and leftovers

OK, it's late and I have a flight to catch in the morning, but I'll leave you with a few things. * It seems that John Lannan might be about done for the year. His fastball was all over the...

Bergmann, etc.

So Jason Bergmann threw seven innings tonight for Class AAA Columbus, and it appears he might be ready. He allowed six hits and no runs to Louisville, striking out nine and walking none. That, I would think, would be the...

The logic on Lannan

So John Lannan will take the mound tonight, and as it turns out, it will be his second-to-last start in the majors this year. I talked a while back about how the Nationals are going to monitor the innings pitched...

Lineup, and a programming note

Just one thing to mention about today's episode of "Washington Post Live" on Comcast SportsNet, which airs at 5 p.m. Ross Detwiler will be making an appearance. Not sure what time, but tune in. Could be interesting. Here's the Nationals'...

Position-by-position: Catcher

First, give thanks to whatever power you give thanks to that your team did not give up 30(!!!!!) runs yesterday. Nats bullpen vs. Astros: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K. Orioles bullpen vs. Rangers...

Three in a row? Lineups, etc.

Forgot to mention in the $.35 edition and in the Journal that Roy Oswalt has been scratched from tomorrow's start for the Astros because of a strained left oblique muscle. Right-hander Juan Gutierrez will make his first major league start...

Small news before going to the park

Outfielder Ryan Langerhans has cleared waivers and will report to Class AAA Columbus, thus keeping him in the Nationals' system. That means that in the Jose Vidro-to-Seattle trade, the Nationals' ultimate outcome is Wily Mo Pena and Langerhans. Please continue...

Five hits for history

So if you had to pick a National to be the first one to come up with five hits in a game, you would start with Nook Logan, right? And you also feel chilly when you are in hell, and...

Nick Johnson, Micah Bowie and the lineup

So I don't mean to interrupt the stirring marketing discussion going on below, and I hope that it continues here. But here's a couple of tidbits before I head to the clubhouse. Nick Johnson: He underwent his surgery today...

WMP Deal Completed. Adios, Fruto!

We interrupt the post made 15 minutes ago to bring you actual news: The Nationals sent right-hander Emiliano Fruto to Arizona in exchange for first baseman Chris Carter, then immediately sent Carter to Boston as the player to be named...

WMP: Catch the fever

Well, we have one of those little mini-legends-in-the-making things going on here. Yes, Wily Mo Pena has only played in three games for the Nationals and only homered twice. But there is a buzz in the clubhouse, no doubt, because...

So much for that theory

Well, hope you chewed on that Colome-to-Arizona-for-Chris Carter-to-send-to-Boston deal. Because it's not happening. I've been told that the PTBN (Penguin To Be Nippy? Phillie To Be (a) National?) in the Pena deal is not on the major league roster right...

WMP: Weapon of Mass Production?

First, thanks for keeping things in order over the weekend. I haven't looked at the comments from the last entry -- the breaking news that Nick Johnson won't play for the rest of the year (shocker) -- but I'm sure...
