Well, Mike Rizzo was right about one aspect of it when he said, "It was Ankiel winning the job, not Nyjer losing the job.”
Because on Dec. 21 — the day the Washington Nationals signed Rick Ankiel – he "won" the job and it was the last day Nyjer Morgan was in their plans, in my humble opinion.
Morgan’s comments to the media earlier last week about his impending Continue reading
So much for a quiet off-day in spring training.
By now, you’ve all read the reports. Rick Ankiel has won the centerfielder job. Matt Stairs has a place on the bench. Jayson Nix could very well be a backup outfielder.
And now, for the coup de grace, the Washington Nationals have signed LHP Oliver Perez to a minor league deal.
It’s enough to make one wonder about the decision-making process in Continue reading
According to a tweet from Bill Ladson of MLB.com, the center field battle has lost a competitor, as he reports that the job has come down to the incumbent, Nyjer Morgan, and off-season free agent acquisition Rick Ankiel.
Either Roger Bernadina is slated to be the fourth outfielder, or he will find his way to Triple-A Syracuse, a victim of the fact he has an option remaining.
Morgan, 30, and Continue reading
The Washington Nationals were cruising today, leading the Houston Astros 7-3 entering the bottom of the ninth inning, with the bullpen having thrown five shutout innings.
But as Yogi once said, "It ain’t over til it’s over."
A five-run rally in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Astros to an 8-7 win, before 3,328 at Osceola County Stadium in Kissimmee, FL. The Loss drops the Nats to 10-8 for the Continue reading
Laynce Nix drove in exciting minor league outfielder Eury Perez with a double in the top of the tenth inning, leading the Washington Nationals to a 4-3 victory over their N.L. East foe New York Mets, before a nice crowd at Digital Domain Stadium in Port St. Lucie, FL.
Perez singled and immediately stole second base to get into scoring position for the veteran Nix, trying to make the Nats as a Continue reading
Pre-game thoughts, BULLET-POINT STYLE!Manager Jim Riggleman made some interesting obsevations in his pre-game press conference this morning. He said that Scott Olsen was done, that trying to warm up the other day he just had too many "aches and pains" in his shoulder, and that "this bullpen situation just isn’t working for Scott." He said Olsen needs a good 15 minutes or so to get warmed up, Continue reading
According to multiple sources, Washington Nationals outfielder Nyjer Morgan will serve eight of the original 15 games of two different suspensions. He will begin serving those games Friday, and will return to action Sept. 25.
He’ll miss half of the Nats remaining 16 games.
There’s no information as of this post how the two individual suspensions were reduced. We’ll post more when information Continue reading
Where I bore you with some statistics with arbitrary end points…
In his last 133 plate apperances (dating back to Aug. 7 — 33 games), Adam Dunn is hitting .205/.323/.375 with 4 HRs and 14 RBIs. He’s struck out 42 times against 19 walks. That’s a pace over 162 games for 225 Ks. Eleven of his 23 hits over that time frame have been for extra bases so he has that going for him.
In the ten Continue reading
The Nationals still haven’t heard the results of Nyjer Morgan’s appeal of two seperate suspensions, depsite the hearing taking place Friday morning. That means Morgan is once again pencilled into the lineup. He’s been in the lineup every night since the brawl, 10 straight games — and counting.
Roger Bernadina has been moved up into the 3rd spot in Manager Jim Riggleman’s Continue reading
"Nyjer, he’s hitting eighth there, but that’s his game. I can’t ask him to hit eighth but don’t run. I really thought that he’d get that base. The pitcher wasn’t real quick to the plate but the catcher made a great throw, and he got him. That’s Nyjer’s game, I can’t take that away from him." –Nationals Manager Jim Riggleman.
The Washington Nationals lost another game to the Florida Marlins. Continue reading
