Nationals News: 2-11 Edition

UPDATE: The Nationals have released Logan Kensing, who was signed to a minor league deal last December.

  The Nationals won both of their games yesterday, bringing the team's Spring record to 2-11. Although the record "doesn't matter," these wins no doubt improved the clubhouse atmosphere.

Nationals News

  FanGraphs analyzes Washington's current talent, and predicts a rise above third in the NL East is impossible. Not too surprising.

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

  Former Nats pitching coach Randy St. Claire says he harbors no ill will for the Nats, and currently serves as pitching coach for the Marlins.

  The Mets may or may not be interested in Cristian Guzman, given Jose Reyes' thyroid issue.

  Mike Rizzo is "leaning toward" starting Strasburg in the minors this season. There is no reason not to, so I see this as a good thing.

  Another Kerry Wood/Stephen Strasburg comparison article... but this one is not as negative for Riggleman.

  Chris Duncan is fighting hard to return to form, but is currently 2 for 18 in the Spring.

  A number of commentators have selected the Nats of the decade, managed by Frank Robinson.

  Destin Hood could have been on Alabama's college title winning football team, but had instead signed with the Nats, and he doesn't regret it.

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

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

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

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.
