Svrluga ditched his beat for THAT!?
With all the tumult yesterday at Space Coast Stadium -- to recap: John Patterson was released, Bret Boone was reassigned to minor league camp, Odalis Perez was added to the roster, and three players (none of them surprises) were placed on the DL -- I never got a chance to say a proper hello, and to thank you all for welcoming me back into the NJ fold for a few days. I'm sure you all will do your best to bust Svrluga's chops about his beloved Dukies nearly losing to Belmont last night. (He did, however, write a fantastic gamer, which I would link to here, if I knew how to do that.)
Anyway, we'll be checking in with you all later from Port St. Lucie, where the Nats play the Mets at 1 p.m. The big news of the day (at least as of 8:31 a.m.) is Paul Lo Duca making his first start at catcher. He has roughly a week and a half in which to get to know the Nationals' pitchers. Everyone here says that is enough time. But what do you think?
And by the way, since shameless stumping for one's alma mater is apparently not only accepted, but is de rigueur here at NJ, go ahead and show a little love for my Commodores, who play Siena tonight at 7:20 p.m.
