Long toss: What's on your mind?

By Washington Post Sports

As Adam noted in today's Morning Brushback, he's taking a short mid-spring training break and has handed the ball to his esteemed colleague, Dave Sheinin.

What should Dave be writing about in the coming days? What questions do you have about the Nats this spring?

I want many updates on Chien-Ming Wang, since the Nats' chances of surprising baseball have a lt to do with whether he will return to form, against the odds. I also would like an interview with Nyjer Morgan- so many of us seem to have given up on him, I wonder how his spirits are heading into the season.

Finally, as the minor league camp opens, I would like some read on new pitchers such as Sammy Solis, Robbie Ray and AJ Cole.

I really liked the article on Bo Porter and what he is doing to help Nyjer as well as his own goals. More stuff on our coaching staff and what particular players each has sort of adopted. Obvious stuff on the pitching staff and the battles both for starting and bullpen spots. And finally, as other teams start to cut players, are there other options out there for our final 25 roster.

thanks and Go Nat!

Well i see the short leash on Sharon Martis was even shorter than i thought,one outing and it's back to the gulag for you Mr.Martis. What would i like to see? Hmmm maybe this team could give certain player's a chance instead of bringing them to camp and reassigning them before that player work's up a sweat.

Here are some questions for Dave:

How can you purport to maintain an MLB blog and then only post to it about once a month? Only 4 posts on Baseball Insider since the start of Spring Training?

Why is it that your fellow Commodores Kepner and Olney are so much more prolific than you are in covering baseball?

Do you believe, as The Post's MLB writer, that after having a major league team for more than six years now, The Post has risen to the level of providing major-league caliber baseball coverage?

What will you do now that the Strasburg gravy train dried up and there's no market for the book you were writing and hoping to cash in on?

Why Mock has a job still......

Storen hasn't looked good since the end of last year. For a team that actually thinks it can make a step with some vets, is it possible that he'll go to the minors at the beginning of the year or would that mess him up mentally??

"Training" does this mean Kilgore is getting fired? Who takes their baseball beat writer away from Spring Training?

I'll take "Comcast" for $500, please.

Ding! Ding! Ding!
1a1 gets it right!
CSN is taking Mark Zuckerman away for close to three weeks.
Relax, comish4lif. Kilgore is off for four days.

The header on this says: What's on your mind? The answer is obvious: Get rid of Poopy and his fellow trolls, who are destroying what ever is good about reading comments here.

Hmmmm ....

Lannan, Detwiler, Gorzelanny all lefties all starters. Then there's Tom Milone a better "Lannan" and likely in Syracuse befitting the organization's Pitcher of the Year? Lannan trade?

Josh Wilkie made the "first cut". Is he someone that the Nats FO take seriously? We'd like to think so but ... it sure has seemed like the opposite is true.

Gaudin and Broderick as starters? Really? Over Maya, Zimmn, and well even JD Martin and Atilano? Makes no sense to me.

What's up with Adam LaRoche's shoulder soreness? It seems like he's been playing a bunch of DH. Is this soreness more than just soreness? Anything to worry about?

Is there any chance that Bernadina takes over the CF job. He has been playing great and Morgan has been mediocre at best. An outfield consisting of Morse, Bernadina and Werth would be our best option in my opinion.
