While Teixeira Was Wasting Our Time...Washington Nationals: Winter League Roundup...


Ronnie Belliard was 0 for 1 in his only at bat Sunday night, as the Tigres del Licey took on the Leones de Escogido, no word on why he left the game early...Daniel Cabrera, who signed with DC as a free agent a few days back, pitched two innings opposite Twins' and Leones' lefty Francisco Liriano, with each starter giving up an identical 2 hits, 2 runs, 1 HR and 1 walk with 1 K a piece in their 2.0 innings each. Cabrera's two starts into his Winter, and he's allowed 8 hits, 3 ER, 1 HR, and 3 walks, with 3 K's in 4.1 IP. The Leones ended up with 22 hits in a 13-3 win. The Tigres' second baseman Anderson Hernandez was 2 for 2 with his 20th double this Winter, and he's now hitting .365 after 50 games in which he's collected 20 doubles, 6 triples and 1 HR with 29 RBI's...


The Criollos de Caguas dropped a 3-1 decision to Gigantes de Carolina Tuesday night. No Justin Maxwell, but Garrett Guzman was in left field, and he went 1 for 4 with his 9th double, so he's hitting .295 in 32 games and 112 at bats. This past Sunday night, Maxwell was in right with Guzman again in left. Maxwell collected his 7th double with Caguas in a 6-3 loss to the Indios de Mayaguez, and 31 games in, Maxwell's also got 1 triple, 6 HR's and 21 RBI's. Guzman was 1 for 2 with a K Sunday...DC reliever-for-a-minute Jonathan Albaladejo, who pitched 7 games for the Yankees last season, earned his 11th save this winter for the Indios, to take the Save lead in the Liga de Beisbol Profesional de Puerto Rico... 


Sunday night, Jesus Flores used his one at bat for the Navegantes del Magallanes to ground into a double play and lower his Winter average a bit to .235 in 29 games and 81 at bats. The Navegantes lost that game to Aguilas de Zulia 5-2. Monday night the Navegantes lost 9-8 to the Leones de Caracas, but there was no Jesus Flores, just former Nationals' backstop Wiki Gonzalez, who's hitting .301 this winter after going 3 for 5. 

The Next To Next To Last Time You'll Hear Mark Teixeira's Name Here Until The Nationals Visit NY on June 16th-18th...

I just thought all of the old school Senators' fans would appreciate the fact that Mark Teixeira, according to Washington Times' writer Ben Goessling's article entitled, "Nats' pursuit of Teixeira falls flat", told an anonymous "team source", who relayed the information to Mr. Goessling, that:

"Teixeira's years of losing with the Texas Rangers hurt the Nationals, who couldn't offer the immediate chance to win that the Yankees could."

This had to be Bob Short's fault somehow, right?
