The Best Laid Bullpen Plans…

Posted on July 25, 2010 at 8:25 am

Hmm there went my initial story, sort of. You know what they say about the "best laid plans". Initially I was going to write about how painful it is for a player who has had a taste of the big leagues to be called up from AAA for one day and not give the best showing, knowing he'll get sent back down immediately after the game. Naturally, the ultimate goal is to make it to the big club and ... Continue Reading

Got Plans? Zimmermann starts for P-Nats tomorrow

Posted on July 20, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Jordan Zimmermann will make another start in Woodbridge tomorrow (Wednesday) for the Potomac Nationals. I highly recommend visiting the "baby Nats" and taking in a game there while the big Nats are on this incredibly long road trip. It nets you an in-person baseball fix and you get to see a starter of Natsmas past and future. Scott Olsen will also be rehabbing with the Potomac club this weekend, but sadly when the P-Nats are the visiting team at Winston-Salem. So ... Continue Reading

Jordan Zimmermann Begins Return

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 9:11 am

Strasburg versus Zimmermann cage match. How do you choose between two young promising pitchers for the Nationals when both start on the same day, one in Nationals Park and the other on a minor league field half an hour south? I was torn about which game to attend Saturday. I hadn't missed a home start by Stephen Strasburg yet, but I didn't want to miss Jordan Zimmermann's first rehab appearance on the road back from Tommy John surgery either, knowing ...

Quick Hits – 15 Day DLers and Strasburg

Posted on May 24, 2010 at 6:01 pm

No, the two things in the title have nothing to do with each other, thank goodness. Stephen Strasburg makes his (final? close to final?) AAA start tonight at 7 PM and since it's an off-night for the Nats, it will be televised on MASN live. Tune in NOW! Outfielder Justin Maxwell was recalled to take SP Scott Olsen's roster spot after he went to the 15-day disabled list. The Nats also placed catcher Pudge Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with back ... Continue Reading

No Guts No Glory? Or The Opposite?

Posted on May 22, 2010 at 9:27 am

In reading all the game coverage from last night's 5-3 loss to the Orioles, I keep getting hung up on pitching coach Steve McCatty's description of Scott Olsen after the game. Heading into the first game of the interleague series against the northerly neighbors, the Nationals had every reason to win, possessing the better .500 record before the game at 21-21 compared to the Orioles' league-leading worst record at 13 wins to 29 losses. By the end of the game, ... Continue Reading
