Nationals Journal: August 26, 2007 - September 1, 2007

The Patterson question

We now know that John Patterson will not pitch for the Nationals again this season. We know that he is headed for his second surgery in as many years to solve nerve problems in his right arm. We know his...

Patterson to have surgery

Right-hander John Patterson will have surgery to decompress the radial nerve in his right elbow, GM Jim Bowden and Patterson said today. Patterson was here at RFK Stadium, and it was very clear in talking to him that he is...

Pregame bits and pieces

So Manny Acta held his as-promised meeting with the team, and the message was simple. "We have to stay focused," Acta said. I've touched on this theme before, and I'll do so again, but just because the Nationals have played...

Nationals lineup

So Ronnie Belliard was examined yesterday and it was determined that he has some fluid in his inner ear which is what caused his dizziness the last couple days. Apparently, though, he's not dizzy enough to be out of the...

Bonneville, Nats in negotiations -- and the future of radio

So I just talked to Joel Oxley, the senior vice president for Bonneville D.C., the group of radio stations that owns and operates WTOP and the soon-to-be-reformatted WTWP-Washington Post Radio. I know this has been discussed by you folks here...

Bits and pieces from the road

OK, very quickly, because I've got 20 minutes before they're supposed to board American 74 with service to Washington-Dulles. (Hate flying into Dulles, by the way. That's a loooooooooooooong way back home to Capitol Hill.) · The Chicago White Sox...

"I don't believe ... what I just saw."

Um, please sit down for the following news. Comfy? Good. Robert Fick has hit a home run. I'll let that sink in a bit. Got it? Arms around it? OK. This brings up an interesting point -- as it's 7-3...

Position by position: Middle infield

Apparently this team is going to dictate how our position-by-position series goes, because just when I wanted to move on from catcher (where we've discussed Schneider and Flores) to first (where we've discussed Young and Johnson) to closer (where we...

Lineups from Chavez Ravine

Wily Mo Pena told me a little while ago that he couldn't play tonight, but he will test his foot tomorrow. He said he would absolutely be able to play on Friday. In fact, he said, "Not 'be able.' I'm...

The Zimmerman story: Early version

Some of you requested this in the other thread, so I thought I'd post it here. Also: The radio situation. The Nationals broadcasts will remain on 107.7 FM/1500 AM through the rest of the season. The club's deal was with...

Don't look now ...

... but things aren't going so well anymore. Look what happened while everyone was (quasi-)celebrating how resilient the Nationals have been for the better part of the season, since they started 9-25. They went out and lost nine of 12....

Is anybody up? I have WMP news

So Wily Mo Pena, the Weapon of Mass Production, left tonight's game with a contusion on his left foot. X-rays were negative. He is day-to-day. In case anybody missed it, WMP had his Kirk Gibson moment, fouling a 2-1 fastball...

Nationals' lineup

Here's your lineup from Chavez Ravine. This is a nice place, but I have to say that the seats here are faded more than those at RFK. Washington: Lopez - 6 Logan - 8 Zimmerman - 5 Young - 3...

Position by position: The Cordero Question

As promised, let's skip around in our position-by-position series to closer, mostly because those of you who spend time on the Journal at work (horrors!) probably spent their time in pursuit of more worthy endeavors over the weekend. Therefore, Chad...

Mile High Madness

Last game in Colorado, with Joel Hanrahan getting the chance to salvage one game here before moving on to L.A. Your lineups: Washington: Lopez -- 6 (hitting .143 in 12 games since Aug. 12) Belliard -- 4 (was hitting .304...
