The Perils of a Four Run Lead

It has seemed to me that the 2011 Nationals are a team that doesn't deal well with prosperity - by which I mean that having a big lead early is no guarantee of success for the Nationals.  That's...

Rizzo, Pitching, and the Road Not Taken

As the Nationals entered the offseason after completing the 2010 campaign, Nationals' GM Mike Rizzo made it clear that his top goal was pitching generally - but most particularly a #1 starter. ...

Apologies; no disrespect meant

Greetings from a Nationals fan.  I'm the guy whose comment from Federal Baseball ("Wow, the Cards are just ... awful.  They were in first place") got reposted in the game thread here on Wednesday. ...

Tanner Roark crowded out by ... Shane McCatty?

As many of you may remember, last year the Nationals traded Christian Guzman to the Texas Rangers for two minor league pitchers, Ryan Tatusko and Tanner Roark.  For the Nationals it was a good...

Rosterbation - d_c_guy's version

Well, we're one week from Opening Day (Huzzah!) so I don't even care that the weather sucks.  Better now than next week!  Time for the final roster countdown.  Not that anyone asked, but if I were...

The "Rizzo Effect" on the Nationals Future

According to John Sickels and minorleaguebaseball.com, the Nationals' farm system has moved into the top 50%; the site ranks the Nationals farm system as #13 of 30 MLB teams. And this ranking is...

Derek Lee signs with the O's

According to MASN, the contract is one year for $8 million.  Zuckerman has the signing but not the amount.  I would rather have had Lee for one year than LaRoche for three; let's hope that the...

Sickels Update on Henry Rodriguez and Corey Brown

Looking for a view of the end zone "Interception" yesterday

I know it doesn't really matter because the Redskins won, but was there ever any replay that made any sense out of the Darren Cox "interception" in the second quarter?  That was a very important...

Happy Thanksgiving, Federal Baseball!

In addition to family, feasting and other folderol, I am thankful for the game of baseball, the opportunity to spend a summer afternoon or evening at a Washington DC ballpark, watching on TV (with...

Yankees Release Former National Jonathan Albaladejo

+

The Nats get Clippard, the Yankees get a guy who was great at AAA but couldn't hack it in the Bronx. Even Bowden won one occasionally. I suppose the Yankees got the Nationals back with Brian Bruney though. Albaladejo signed with a Japanese team.

Type A? What's it worth to ya?

First things first:  I'm firmly in the "sign Adam Dunn" camp. Not because it makes Ryan Zimmerman happy, although I do want Zimmerman to be happy. Not because it will make the fans happy, although...

Welcome to the Postseason, "Doc" Halladay

I'm certainly no Phillies fan, but I've been a Roy Halladay fan for a long time.  As a Yankee fan I was happy to see him leave the AL - he was a reliable Yankee killer.  As a Nats fan it's tough to...

Struggling to get Pitchers Out

All of you have been listening to me bitch complain about the Nats' seeming inability to get opposing pitchers out.  Up until now that has just been anecdotal - it seems like every game that I go...

Tickets to Royals @ Nats, 6/21/10

Greetings all!  I've been so focused on jury-rigging my schedule to see Strasburg pitch that I completely lost track of the fact that I have four tickets to Monday night's game against the Royals. ...

All Star Nats?

As we all know, until fairly recently the Nationals have had a low profile in baseball.  This has carried over to the all-star game; for the past four years the team has only had the required...

Hog #1 Goes To Canton

I can't believe that I'm the first one to post about it, but I'm happy to make my first fanpost a big tip of the burgundy & gold helmet to Russ Grim, the first Hog in the Pro Football Hall of Fame....
