Why Call up Desmond if you are going to play Guzman.....he is hurt and old and a known quantity....It makes not sense to sit Desmond.....It really makes you wonder how this team finds it's way to the park each day.

This is an extremely critical game - why risk playing a rookie SS? It is very important to have senior leadership at this time of year for our push to.....oh wait, never mind....

Ugghhh. All the freaking Phillies jerseys and hats on the metro today was vomit inducing. Even though the anger fueled by rivalry left me about mid-April, that's still a sight that will boil my blood every time. Someday... someday we'll be able to shout "Phillies Suck!" at visiting fans filing through turnstiles at Metro stops and not have to hide in shame. Someday perhaps the stands will be so full of Nats fans that there won't be room enough for hordes of the red-clad menace.

For this series at least - Harper chase be damned! Take it to these fools boys! Let's Go Nats!

Well, in the end Rizzo needs to make some deals in the offseason and admitted himself. I wonder if anyone read the very, very interesting article associated with the link Brian (NFA) created to the Syracuse Post-Standard.

Within it shows a very, very aggressive Nats front office basically guaranteeing a competitive winning AAA affiliate. And they lived up to their promise.

Maybe Guzman saw Desmond appear on the roster ... and hey you know what my bunions are much, much better now ... ~smiles~

Harper? I really doubt that Rizzo cares that much ... I really believe he likes the idea of winning now ... doing your damnedest to beat the other guy. I can't see him changing that to get another project like Harper.

@EdDC: By my raw calculations, the Nationals are spending approximately $66.3M for the year on ML salary; That's probably somewhat below ML mid-line, FWIW.

With approximately $22M coming off the board, 2010 expenditures will still have to cover arbitration players, and any roster moves via FA/trades.
