Nats' Mini-Plans

Sorry, I meant to post something about this yesterday and then things starting happening. While we're all waiting for Adam Dunn to be introduced -- although the Nats' news release was careful not to name the mystery player they were bringing in -- I thought I'd toss out the link to the mini-plan details.

Dave and Boz are at Nats Park, covering the news conference. (Chico is winging his way south, or will be shortly.) Dave will post details on Nats Journal afterward.

Next week, Chico will be joined in Viera by Dan Steinberg and photographer extraordinaire Jonathan Newton. Boz will go down the following week for the first weekend of games. At some point in March, we will have a Guest Scribe cover the team for a week. Although this person is vowel-challenged, we like him. Panera, you've been warned!

Could it be the return of the Svrluga!? First Adam, then Barry -- but how long will it take to get good news all the way to Z (as in Zimm)?

Svrlugaville?

I think they are announcing Dunn and the trade for Dan Uggla.

Holy royal poo I know this won't happen but just imagine it. Yea, you got a shiver up your spine, too, eh. (In a good way, now)

Thanks for the update, Tracee. Will look forward to the ST coverage from Chico, Bos, and the Bog. Speaking of which, I think that I also spied Dan Steinberg in the media contingent at the press conference (watching on MASN).

Last but by no means least. A vowel-challenged guest scribe? SvrlUUUga!!

For those of you looking at mini-plans, looks like those seats in RF just got a little more valueable with today's addition.

Anyone watch the presser, anything of interest said? Very curious to hear what might have been said about Nick Johnson's health or Manny's intentions for the line-up have changes with Dunn penciled in at clean-up, is Dukes a #2 hitter, is Zim a lock at #3, can Milledge lead-off, if not Milledge who, Hernandez or Guzman?

Maybe that's asking too much from a FA signing presser...

Looks like Poopy McPoop's mother rousts him out of bed every afternoon around 2:00, doesn't it? That's probably when she fires up the vacuum cleaner to sweep up the pile of Cool Ranch Dorito crumbs he left by the basement couch when he fell asleep there the night before. Or maybe it's more like 1:30 and it takes him a half hour to bicycle down to the public library and get on the internet. Whatever, he's here now. Let the day begin!

=================================

1:30 or 2 pm eh? Right, cause everyone who posts on this blog must be on the east coast.

Private investigator or brother shamus you're most certainly not.

Over the line. You're entering a world of pain.

And by that I mean, a world of pain watching the Expos lose another 100+ games this year.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA.

Have fun with the O's cast-offs.

At this presser are they announcing a trade of a few fringe minor leaguers for Albert Puljos, Dustin Pedroia, Matt Weiters, Tim Linsecum, Brandon Webb, and Johan Santana too?

Some of you all must be smoking the most potent grass on the planet.

Hey look, that last post about wacky-tobacky was posted at exactly 4:20.

HAHHAHAHAHA good stuff

Barry!

I long for the day when we could have our beat reporter (Chico), columnist/random assorted reporter (our vowelly challenged friend) and our baseball gurus (Boom Boom and Boz).

THAT is a Post Sports section that I would pay for! Assuming...you know, that I lived anywhere near circulation.

That *would* be some sports section, natty.

estuartj, the Sports Bog has some info on the presser. Hope that either MASN or the Nats site will get a video up at some point.

Nats announce Dunn and NJ announces Svrluga, all in the same day?

HOORAYYYY!!!!

At the presser, Acta said that they haven't decided whether Dunn will play LF or 1B.

I understand that trades likely are in the works, but the Nats run the risk of massively confusing their players will roles that are not defined.

another new post already...

For pete's sakes, why couldn't they have announced these mini-plans before I put money down on my 20-gamer?!?
