Nationals Journal: July 13, 2008 - July 19, 2008

Young to DL, Zimmerman to return

Unable to stabilize his diabetes, Washington Nationals first baseman Dmitri Young was placed on the 15-day disabled list after tonight's game. In Young's place, the Nationals will recall third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who was successfully able to rehabilitate a shoulder...

Who's Coming

Based on the lineup posted below, you'll understand the importance of these updates. At least the first two. * Lastings Milledge, out since June 28 because of a groin injury, will begin his rehab assignment tomorrow when he joins the...

Tonight's lineups

Same order as last night for the Nats. I've included batting averages along with positions, just so you can take note of the second-highest total in the lineup. Dmitri Young, who was pulled from yesterday's lineup before the game even...

Mock, Paper, Scissors

For those interested, here is this week's minor league report (from Nats PR man Bill Gluvna), which includes what is believed to be the first 50 Cent in recent NJ history. NATIONALS MINOR LEAGUE REPORT This Week's Top Headline NOTHING...

Turner Field and its ace

Somebody yesterday, whose name I will insert later (via edit) if he/she wants credit, said that attending a baseball game at Turner Field felt like "spending a night inside Stan Kasten's brain." Kasten, as you'll know, spent more than 15...

What's the catch?

You can't say the Nats do nothing well. When it comes to stocking catchers up like a Sam's Club stockpiles club soda, the Nats have no equal. Obviously, the team cannot keep four catchers on the roster for long. Johnny...

Pena Down, Estrada Up

Sorry it took a while to get this posted -- I was en route to Atlanta -- but now that I've landed, snagged a rental car, driven to the ballpark, talked for 10 hilarious minutes to a 74-year-old ballpark employee...

Scouting Assessments

Good morning, fellas. Today the Journal resumes regular duties, same as the Nats resume their season. The team begins an 11-day, 10-game road trip that covers Atlanta, San Francisco and Los Angeles. But while we spend a few more hours...

More on Hood

Hey fellas, I've just emerged from a writing bubble that produced the story you'll see in tomorrow's paper. You'll also get the news story on Hood, which I pasted below (if you're interested in the full details.) Hood is getting...

Nationals, Hood agree to terms

The Nationals came to terms today with their second-round pick, Destin Hood, a high school outfielder from Mobile, Ala. Hood is the first of Washington's top five picks to sign. Before Hood signed late last night, he had been weighing...

The Midseason Report (glossy cover sheet not included)

Last week, a succession of five daily polls sought, in a roundabout way, to examine the general mindset of the Washington Nationals' fanbase, or whatever portion of it exists on this Web site. The good news is, a lot of...

Rating Nats Park at Midseason

Hey gang ... jumping in here to make sure you see the great package our friends in Metro have put together on Nats Park. Here's the content, and hopefully you don't need my prompting to let the world know what...

The team takes a break, the injuries do not

Washington Nationals left fielder Wily Mo Pena will almost certainly head to the disabled list after an MRI and an examination today of his left shoulder indicated several forms of damage. Pena, who met with Nationals orthopedist Ben Shaffer, has...

On games and gamers

I must be quick and somewhat brief this morning. I'm heading up to Class AA Harrisburg today for a little Sens action. (We've got Jordan Zimmermann on the hill, one of the organization's more promising pitching prospects.) So here's the...

To begin the Break, we toast

For those interested, we're still on for 7:30. Others from the Post (Dave Sheinin, even former NJ majority stakeholder Barry Svrluga) had expressed interest in coming, but one is heading to the All-Star Game and one is on vacation. But...

Today's lineup, and things that might affect future lineups

Bos and I had a wide-ranging discussion this morning with Nats principal owner Mark Lerner. We talked everything from offseason strategy to federal investigations. Here is just an excerpt from some of the most interesting things he said... * When...
