More Paraphrased John Lannan Quotes From Yesterday's Blogger Conference Call With The Nationals:

Lannan -

- A veteran starter would help...

- The starters on the staff now know each other from the system...

- Opening Day was a rough day, stopped trusting stuff, too fine in the zone...

Does the National media constantly taking shots at Nationals bother players?

- We don't let it bother us, know what we have to do, started weak and record's not that good, but we know what we can do...
