"Even though he is on the disabled list because of a lower back strain, Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez continues to rank third among National League catchers..."

Washington Post - Nationals Journal - Barry Svrluga - "The Streak: A daily look back"

"Greetings, Nationals Journal readers. This is Barry Svrluga, and I'll be breaking into Kilgore's territory once a day over the next week or so. Those who have no interest in nostalgia, please look away. Others, read on."

MASNsports.com - Ben Goessling - "Some Roy Oswalt trade spitballing"

"Another name to watch is first baseman Chris Marrero. The Astros have no successor to Lance Berkman in their system, and Marrero could be expendable, especially if the Nationals extend Adam Dunn's contract and have him hold the position until they could move Bryce Harper there."
