Ballpark Fun!

Go here. Scroll back to 4:03 p.m. this afternoon. Look along the third base line. Zoom in. That would be Ryan Zimmerman filming a promotional spot at Nationals Park this afternoon....

Check out the Nats' roster

Let's put the Mitchell Report aside for a minute. (Of course, that would take a forklift. I've got a copy sitting here on my desk -- rather, sprawled all over my desk -- and let's just say it ain't the...

Clemens's Denial

Randy Hendricks, one of Roger Clemens's agents, just sent out a fierce statement, saying Clemens "vehemently denies allegations in the Mitchell report that he used performance-enhancing steroids." Hendricks's release says that Clemens "is outraged that his name is included in...

The Mitchell Report

When former Senate majority leader George Mitchell holds a press conference in midtown Manhattan in an hour, there will be no shortage of questions, questions that will then be repeated at later press conferences with Commissioner Bud Selig and, even...

Colome avoids arbitration

Jesus Colome, late last night, avoided arbitration with the Nationals. He agreed to a $1.25 million deal for 2008, and he'll earn $25,000 bonus if he pitches in 70 games, $25,000 more if he appears in 80 games. That leaves...

Tender is the night?

Tonight at midnight is the deadline by which club's must offer players a contract. If they don't -- a process call "non-tendering" -- the players become free agents. The Nationals are not going to tender contracts to everyone. Here's their...

Lo Duca is the starter

I wasn't at the gathering, but the Nationals must know they have hit the big-time because Dan Steinberg was in fact there. The most important thing: Jim Bowden indicated that there's no doubt that Lo Duca is the starter. Here's...

This just popped into the in-box. Paul Lo Duca, indeed, will be at the press gathering today at Washington Square, the Lerner offices on Connecticut Ave. downtown. Here's the announcement: The Washington Nationals today agreed to terms with free-agent catcher...

Lo Duca: The day ahead

It's possible that the Lo Duca deal will be finalized today after he completes his physical. But if you want a thorough breakdown, you must read Boz this morning. When I talked to Boz yesterday, he was positively giddy over...

Lo Duca: $5 million

I thought I had put this up earlier, but Lo Duca's deal is for one year and $5 million. That's $100,000 more than Schneider was supposed to make in 2008 ($4.9 million) but $4.8 million less than he was due...

The Middle Infield: The Future

With all the changes in the outfield before and during last week's winter meetings, I didn't get to something that seems to keep coming up, and that would be the future of Felipe Lopez, Cristian Guzman and Ronnie Belliard...
