Nationals News: Relaxing on Labor Day Edition

Nationals News:

  Thomas Boswell makes the case for keeping Livan Hernandez around next season.

  Syracuse manager Tim Foli will join the Nats' coaching staff tomorrow... perhaps a managerial candidate?

  In hopes of improving their defense, the Nats are considering moving Guzman to second and calling up a defensive shortstop, like Ian Desmond.

  Elijah Dukes is signed on to play winter ball in the Dominican winter league.

  Chico Harlan asked some pretty good questions about when to stop pitching and when to play through the pain.

  Jesus Flores is officially off the DL, though he isn't strong enough to catch just yet.

  Yesterday's game was exciting -- you can't ever count the Nats out of it.

  There's been a lot of talk about the Nationals' next manager -- and his last name may be Valentine.

  OMG gives us some things to look for through the rest of the season.

Non-Nationals News:

  Former National (current Cub) Alfonso Soriano is out indefinitely, and will have knee surgery later this month.

  Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is ready to pitch again after experiencing soreness in his groin. I'm not a Yankees fan, but I do like to see Rivera pitch, so this is exciting.

  Ichiro has become the second fastest player in major league history to reach 2,000 hits.
