Chatter Archive: December 2008


  • A brief Tuesday update

    Jim Bowden was supposed to meet with the media at 4 p.m. local time (7 p.m. Eastern), but that meeting was pushed back because the Nationals are "working on something." Published December 9 2008

  • Winter Meetings update, Monday evening

    Not a lot going on yet involving the Nationals, at least not anything that's being talked about in any detail. The most interesting news of the day, in fact, involved a possible departure. Published December 8 2008

  • Hello from Vegas

    Good morning (well, I guess it's afternoon in the District) from Las Vegas, where baseball's winter meetings kick off today. Published December 8 2008

  • Nats hire strength coach

    The Nationals have hired John Philbin (no relation to Regis, as far as I know) as their new strength and conditioning coach and Elizabeth Wheeler as physical therapist. Published December 4 2008

  • Nats set spring schedule

    We just got the Nationals' 2009 spring training schedule. The basics? It's longer in both time (33 games in 37 days) and distance (the closest road game from the team's complex in Viera, Fla., is a 70-minute trip) than in previous years. Published December 3 2008
