The Mike-Phil Rizzo story from the fishwrap edition.
The Washington Times takes an interesting look at the team's middle infield situation, noting how the trade of Emilio Bonifacio and the, um, rapid aging of Carlos Alvarez weakens an already-suspect group. Still, the additions of Anderson Hernandez and Alberto Gonzalez leave the Nats better off than they were a calendar year ago.
Boz was chatting yesterday. Here's the wrap-up of what he said; in one answer, he elaborated on some of the tension between Jim Bowden and Manny Acta, reporting that Acta felt the GM had burdened him with too many bad seeds.
The latest from Stephen Strasburg: 8 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 18 K
Keith Law chatted yesterday. He took some questions on Jimbo, and later one on Jordan Zimmermann. (Negative and positive answers ensued, in predictable order.)
I have an O's link here only because of its connection to the Nats. Here's an update on Brian Matusz, the only pitcher drafted ahead of Aaron Crow last June. The two, by most accounts, were comparable in big-league readiness and potential. Speaking of O's-Nats connections... the two teams play today in Fort Lauderdale. Daniel Cabrera goes against his old mates.
