Nationals News

The Nationals offer Lastings Milledge for Nyjer Morgan straight up, but the Pirates aren't sold on the deal.

-Ryan Langerhans, lost in a sea of outfielders in Washington, has been traded to the Mariners for Mike Morse, whom the Nats are listing as an infielder.

-Manny Acta shifted the batting order in yesterday's game against the O's, moving R. Zimm to cleanup and putting Willie Harris first, with Guzman and Johnson second and third. Of course, the Nats won that game, so we'll see if it sticks.

-Adam Dunn bombed one 445 feet in yesterday's win over the Orioles.

Around the NL East

The Rays beat the Marlins, 5-2, completing a three game sweep.

-Tommy Hanson moved to 4-0 after defeating the Red Sox. He's pretty good.

Around the League

-Mariano Rivera joins the elite I'm-halfway-to-one-thousand club.

-The Nationals wish they could bat (but not pitch) like the Lake Elsinore Storm.

-The Rockies are now 8-2 in their last 10 games.

-Chris Getz, White Sox second baseman, stole home on a (really) wild pitch by Carlos Zambrano.
