The Suitors Line Up

I spoke today with Scott Boras, who represents Mark Teixeira, the top offensive player on the market -- and indeed, Washington's greatest target in the free agent market. The super-agent was predictably coy about the what's in store for Teixeira,...

Teixeira Watch: Why It Might Be a Long Winter

First of all, let me ask you this: Does Teixeira news (or non-news, as the case may be) belong here -- or over in that other blog? In other words, do you feel strongly enough about the Nationals' level of...

Roger Bernadina Medical Update

Good news for Roger Bernadina -- and for the Bravos de Margarita, his team in the Venezuelan Winter League. It looks like Bernadina's recent injury, diagnosed as a right calf strain, will require a two-week strength and conditioning program. After...
