Re: MLB 2013 Season

rule no.1 you got to have a better replacement in line if your gonna let someone go, ie designate for assignment, waiver, etc. Rodriguez is outta options.

To be honest Im a little surprised.

Two years ago I debated which Nats jersey to get. I wanted a position player and althoug I like Zimmerman and I loved Pudge I wanted to get a young player's jersey so it would last awhile. At a game, I debated between Desmond and Espinosa and Danny just happened to hit a huge HR so I went with his jersey.
Happens ever time....
As in their lockers have been cleaned out and they've been designated for assignment, basically waived

Interesting. I can't say I'm completely surprised because they've both been dog-poo this season, but still! You'd think someone would give up something for either of them based on their "potential".

Guess I won't be wearing that Espi jersey to the game tonight!

Edit - just saw this in the comments section of the Post' Nats Insider:
Quote:
Nationals PR ‏@NationalsPR 31s
Nationals add Werth, Rendon (recall, AAA), Ian Krol (selected, AA) to roster. Place Espinosa on DL (right wrist), DFA Rodriguez and Duke.

Re: MLB 2013 Season

Interesting on Espinosa. First I heard was DFA, but maybe (apparently) I had heard wrong

I keep seeing DL, but it's also saying his locker has been cleared (like you said) so the twitter guesses seem to be that he's in for a long DL stint, possibly after surgery.

Fun times.

Re: MLB 2013 Season

Sweet justice for Braun...but the bigger name is A-Rod. What a career. All the talent in the world and a flat out jerk. Its gonna end with a 2nd steroid case and a large suspension. Cant believe he stole all that money, twice. Only the yankees.

From a World Series contender last year to injuries galore and letting go of key players. Yikes.

Immediately after the Nationals lost to the Reds 15-0 this season and commentators said "The worst loss in the history of the Nationals" (and we've had some very bad teams) I immediately said that the Nationals are NOT winning a world series this year.

That'd be more impressive if you said that before the loss. To make a statement like the immediately after a 15-0 loss...I mean I'm sure many were saying that at that moment
