Nationals News: Decisions, decisions...

  The Nats have some tough decisions to make in terms of their starting rotation: Stephen Strasburg is likely to be available Tuesday, Jason Marquis is available now, Yunesky Maya will be ready in late August and Jordan Zimmermann will be ready around the same time. And what about Chien-Ming Wang? Jim Riggleman has said he doesn't want to move to six starters, so somebody's going to have to get the boot...

  Nyjer Morgan was scratched last night with tightness in his right hip flexor, just as he seemed to be hitting his stride. He hopes to be ready to start again this week.

  Nationals Park will add another art exhibit next year, 30 stainless steel orbs illuminated by LEDs that show the trajectory of a fastball in motion.

  Yesterday's game was played in front of the smallest crowd ever at Chase Field, just 15,670. Also, Adam Dunn is fifth in the NL with a .924 OPS.

  Though he wanted to have signed an extension before the beginning of this year, Adam Dunn has managed to play solid baseball despite the trade rumors flying around him.

  Danny Espinosa hit three home runs last night at AA Harrisburg. The Nats believe he has a good chance at being a middle infielder in the majors next season.
