Nationals News: Winless in Washington Edition

  There is an awful lot of talk in Washington about how Spring Training doesn't matter, and even that records shouldn't be kept. It's true: Spring Training doesn't matter -- if you're a good team. The Yankees could lose every single game, and I wouldn't think anything of it. When a team has lost more than 100 in the past two seasons, and is yet to win a single game in the spring, something is wrong. We're more than halfway through March now... when do we start worrying?

Nationals News

  Despite the Nats having lost 11, and Matt Capps giving up his second homer of the Spring, there is nothing to worry about.

  Adam Kilgore predicts that the Nats will bring Capps, Bruney, Burnett, Clippard, Bergmann, Batista and Storen north with them for the bullpen.

  With only two bench players locked down (Willie Harris and Wil Nieves), there are three positions up in the air, and many players fighting for those spots.

  Garrett Mock has all but been named the Nats' third starter for 2010.

  Thomas Boswell runs down the Nats' upcoming personnel decisions -- and there are a lot of them.

  Mike Rizzo has decided that Ian Desmond won't be a utilityman, but will play shortstop full time somewhere, either at Syracuse or in Washington.

  Adam Kilgore looks at how the 2009 playoff teams did in Spring Training that year.

  Ross Detwiler is off his crutches, and is still on track to return in May.

  The Nats Blog wonders if Nyjer Morgan is the real deal, or had an inflated 2009 season. Personally, I think it's quite a bit early to worry.

  If you're water oriented, you can take the water taxi from Alexandria, Virginia to Nats park.

  Jesus Flores is still with Dr. Andrews, and Guzman is back with the team after his wife gave birth to a daughter, Chrisangely.

  Chien-Ming Wang pitched his first bullpen session yesterday, and experienced no pain.
