  The Nationals have assembled a team of draft experts, and will pick Bryce Harper first in the 2010 new player draft.

  It seems that the Nats have been on the wrong end of every check swing call recently.

  Jim Riggleman is still not exactly a believer in pitch limits.

  No team has ever had back-to-back number one draft picks, like the Nats will tonight.

  Craig Stammen was demoted to make room for Stephen Strasburg on the major-league roster.

  Strasburg, VA could become Stephen Strasburg, VA for a week.

  Will Teddy win the Presidents Race when Strasburg debuts?

  Those awful Phillies fans are coming back on July 31. Wa hoo.

  The team is more upset that they have been losing recently than they are excited about the new additions to the team.

  On a sort of related note -- who is going to the SB Nation DC meetup tonight? I'm planning on getting there around 6.

  Nationals Farm Authority has picked the top ten players in tonight's draft.

  Dan Steinberg at the Post is running a Stephen Strasburg haiku contest. It's not too late to enter!
