Winter ball update
While I collect my thoughts for the upcoming holiday week - and do some reporting on where the Nationals stand two weeks before the winter meetings - I'll pass on this update on Nationals in winter ball. (Special thanks to Nationals sub-assistant for baseball information Mark Rogoff for this info. These are his words, not mine.)

Also, in case you missed this, check out this nomination of Mike Bacsik for Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year. It's by my buddy Lee Jenkins, who was with the New York Times when we were in San Francisco covering the Bonds chase but has since left for SI. An interesting take.
Will get you more later. I'll also be on "Washington Post Live" at 5 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet today.
