No-what?

It's 9:17 p.m. The Nationals have just gone down in order in the top of the sixth. Ryan Zimmerman made two errors in one inning, Brian Schneider another in the same frame. The Braves lead, 5-0. I'm not going to...

Minor minor news

I'm going to do a complete minor league wrap-up post -- perhaps this weekend, though Vermont is still playing -- but I thought I'd pass on this smidgen of news from this afternoon. One of the Nationals' two Dominican Summer...

Position by position: Third base

This should be brief, and I'll let you discuss it till Friday morning, when I head to Atlanta and we return from an off day to bring some baseball. But we've done the position-by-position looks at catcher (ad nauseum, you...

Get ready to chat -- and Boz tours the ballpark

Chat is in 15 minutes. Somehow, I had missed this tour of the new Nationals park hosted by Thomas Boswell. It's from a few weeks ago, so there's been even more progress down there since. But Boz already has some...

Flores: The GM's assessment

Well, we've already been through this Jesus Flores-Brian Schneider thing, right? You might remember our position-by-position breakdown of it from a couple weeks ago. And I used some Jim Bowden assessments of it in the $.35 edition here. (Those who...

Clubhouse buzz

So the new guys are here, and both Ross Detwiler and Justin Maxwell seem to understand that they're not going to play much, if at all. Detwiler: "Really, I'm not expecting too much. Just to try to get my feet...

Ray King traded

So the Nationals just traded left-handed reliever Ray King to the Milwaukee Brewers for a player to be named. This of course has a huge impact on the bench in the Nationals' bullpen, which now gets some relief. All...

Starting pitching: The future is now?

Welcome back from the beach, the mountains, the in-laws, wherever. Congress is back in session, Capitol Hill is awake again, Journal staff has reassembled after a long weekend of leaving me to run things myself (including doing payroll, which I...

Zimmerman and the walk-off -- plus call-up news

Lots of Didn't Make the Paper material from yesterday, and plenty of it from GM Jim Bowden, though I might save some of it for later in the week. But lets add this info on call-ups, which have some expected...

Guzman to return?

So the Nationals are trying to get Cristian Guzman healthy enough so that he might return for the last two weeks or 10 days or so. Guzman, out with a thumb injury suffered June 25, has been throwing for a...
