Scott Olsen's next rehab start

In what could be one of his final steps before returning to the Nationals, Scott Olsen will next his next rehab start Thursday for Class A Potomac in Winston-Salem. On Saturday, Olsen made his first rehab appearance outside of the Gulf Coast League and threw four innings for Class A Hagerstown, allowing one run on two hits and no walks with four strikeouts.

Olsen has been on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation since May 23. He went 2-2 with a 3.77 ERA before leaving a start with weakness in his surgically repaired left shoulder.

The Nationals also made a move within their minor leagues, promoting left-handed starting pitcher Daniel Rosenbaum from Hagerstown to Potomac. Rosenbaum has been one of the best pitchers in the Nationals' farm system this season. In 101 innings, Rosenbaum has a 2.32 ERA with 84 strikeouts, 28 walks and just five home runs allowed.

To bad he couldn't have caught a quick flight from Dullas or Reagan National to Cincinatti and take the turn instead of Atilano. Hey you never know?

Cousin Mikie said he wants Carlos Quentin and Gordon Beckham. ChiSox say no dice...

Kind of an important clarification - the source in the Sun-Times article said that Rizzo would like Beckham OR Quintin involved in the deal. Not both. Asking for one is a lot, asking for both is ridiculous. I don't think Rizzo is being ridiculous, he just wants as close to a sure thing as possible for this deal. Otherwise, maybe they'll just settle for the two picks next summer. Though a couple high level prospects right now from the Chi Sox would be a safer bet than two draft picks. And the cheap Lerners would get immediate salary relief, which will help boost profits even higher this season.

Either way, I think the safe money might be on Adam Dunn not being a National next season. Which is disappointing, really.

Getting back to Riggles’ spin on Pudge hitting into double plays. He said a similar thing on the pre-game show yesterday to Charlie about Adam Kennedy overrunning second on Sunday. Instead of saying it was a mistake and it killed the prospect of a rally, he said it was a glass-half-full thing. They had their close in and we got two people on base. (Glass half full.) Sure, we didn’t score and lost the game. (That would be glass half empty.) But woo-hoo we got two runners on base against their closer!

But the really important question is:

Is Danny Rosenbaum the great Jewish hope?
