Dave Nichols from the Nationals News Network emailed to let me know that the Washington Nationals announced today that they'd finalized their 25-man roster, moving Jordan Zimmermann, Jesus Colome and Alex Cintron to minor league camp and assigning Garrett Mock and Jason Bergmann to Triple-A Syracuse according to the Nationals' Official Press Release. The Nationals also "selected the contracts" of Julian Tavarez, Wil Ledezma and Josh Bard."

John Lannan Will Be The Washington Nationals' Opening Day Starter!!


According to MLB.com's Bill Ladson's article entitled, "Nats tap Lannan for Opening Day start", DC Manager Manny Acta will make the announcement tomorrow...Mr. Ladson also reports it's Scott Olsen and Daniel Cabrera after Lannan...Who will be #4? #5? John "Cool Hand" Lannan on Opening Day!! Now what about the outfield? Sorry...

WBC Game Thread...U.S. vs The Netherlands - Elimination Game....Will Adam Dunn And Joel Hanrahan Be Back With DC On Monday?


Dustin Pedroia's out. The Orioles' Brian Roberts is in. The U.S. team got mercy-ruled last night, and will no doubt be looking for redemption. If the US can't beat the Netherlands tonight at 7:30 pm EST, however, it'll be the end of the WBC for Adam Dunn and "Wild" Joel Hanrahan...Do you want to see these Nationals go on in the WBC, or do you want them back in Spring Training? Game time: 7:30 pm EST...Can Adam Dunn Save The United States?

Nationals Interested In Former Met Duaner Sanchez But Not For $1 Million...


According to an item in New York Daily News' writer Adam Rubin's Star-Ledger Sports' column entitled, "Mets Notebook": "While the Nationals have expressed interest in ex-Met Duaner Sanchez, their budget doesn't allow a $1 million-plus signing, putting their pursuit on the backburner until the price comes down."

Shawn Hill? Injured? Please, No?

Washington Post writer Chico Harlan reports that Shawn Hill never made it to the mound today, heading instead to see Dr. James Andrews after feeling "forearm discomfort". What can you say...? Sorry, Hill?

Washington Times' Mark Zuckerman on XM's Inside Pitch...


I caught an interview with Washington Times' writer Mark Zuckerman on the XM's MLB Homeplate radio show "Inside Pitch" with Jeff Joyce and Kevin Kennedy, and jotted down a few notes about the conversation: Mark Zuckerman says:(paraphrasing, of course) -- The entire organization is preoccupied with the recent scandal. -- Doesn't think this is going away any time soon. --There is a chance Jim Bowden loses his job. -- The Nationals really need to change the perception of the team. Ownership taking a long look...Even if Bowden didn't do anything wrong... -- Manny Acta? No insinuation of Acta's involvement in any of this, but there's a lot of pressure on everyone in the organization. -- '09 Nationals? The team is healthy, which they were not in '08, a better offense with Dunn, Willingham added...w/out injuries should be a better team, at least doesn't think they'll lose 102 again.

Someone Please Tell Odalis Perez To Call The Washington Nationals...

Washington Post writer Chico Harlan's Nationals Journal post today entitled, "Bowden: Pick Up The Phone Odalis", might just be the height of ridiculousness, as the clock ticks on the veteran lefty's chance to make the trip to Florida and honor his contract before the Nationals have to get all legal on last year's Opening Night starter...Should we all post on phone # on our websites and blogs or something? Any way we can help?
