Nationals News: 2010 is the new 2009

New, 3 comments

  I'd like to begin by saying that if you missed Doghouse's graph from last night, you really owe it to yourself to scroll down. Yesterday's game reminded me of what all of 2009 felt like.

Nationals News

  Every member of the Nationals believes they can bounce back in today's game.

  Roger Bernadina has been receiving a lot of playing time in right field. The Nats believe he has the talent to become an everyday player, but he hasn't proven himself yet.

  John Lannan will likely have a pitch limit in his start on Thursday, his first start after missing his turn with elbow soreness.

  The racing presidents will run tonight during Stephen Strasburg's start at AAA Norfolk.

  Ryan Zimmerman says that Jim Riggleman is a big part of the Nats' success because he has an even keel.

  Jason Marquis gave up six hits and three earned runs in 3.2 during his start at Class A Potomac, but apparently left the game healthy did not leave the game healthy and may need to have surgery.

  FJB says that the Nats' chances of staying in the playoff hunt are greater because the NL isn't very strong.

  The D.C. Council's Committee on Libraries, Park and Recreation has proposed a tax on sporting events in D.C., though Nationals games are exempt.

  Pudge Rodriguez has been hitting so well that he could go 0 for his next 40 and still have a batting average of .271. He also works out a lot and is fun to watch, in my opinion.

Around the League...

  Sleepgate update: Mariners Manager Don Wakamatsu said that Ken Griffey Jr. was not alseep in the clubhouse. He did cry at a team meeting, though.

  Dallas Braden read David Letterman's Top 10 list, and took a few more shots at A-Rod.
