Chatter Archive: June 2008


  • Marrero out for season

    Chris Marrero, the Nationals' top-rated prospect, will miss the rest of the season after tests concluded he broke his fibula sliding into home plate on Wednesday. Published June 21 2008

  • Dukes on fire, Langerhans sent down

    How about that Elijah Dukes? He may make plenty of news off the field, but right now he's making a lot more on the field. Published June 21 2008

  • Boone scratched

    Good thing I didn't give you starting lineups when they first came out nearly three hours ago, because the Nats made a switch. Aaron Boone, who was supposed to start at third base at bat fifth, was scratched with a sore left knee. Published June 20 2008

  • Nationals vs. Senators

    Good news: The Nats are back home after a three-city, nine-game, 10-day trip through three different time zones. Bad news: They just got swept by the Minnesota Twins and blew a chance to post a winning record on the trip, settling for 4-5. Published June 20 2008

  • Marrero update

    Just wanted to pass along a quick update on Potomac first baseman Chris Marrero: The team placed him on the disabled list this morning with a sprained right ankle, calling up Bill Rhinehart from Hagerstown to take his place, according to a press release. Published June 20 2008

  • Uff-da

    For the uniitiated (or those who haven't seen "Fargo"), that's a Minnesota phrase generally used to express frustration or fatigue when something's not going well. Pretty appropriate for the visiting team here tonight. Published June 19 2008

    A few things to pass along from the Metrodome: Published June 18 2008

  • Lo Duca ready; Johnson update

    As expected, the Nationals will activate Paul Lo Duca off the 15-day DL tomorrow, in time for the start of a three-game series at Minnesota. Published June 16 2008

  • Lo Duca in LF?

    With Jesus Flores taking over behind the plate, Paul Lo Duca could get some playing time both in left field and possibly at first base, while still catching some too backing up Flores. Published June 15 2008

  • Nats win, Flores to remain starter

    For the first time in nearly a month, the Nationals have won back-to-back games and taken a series from their opponent. Published June 15 2008

  • DL technicality, and ump down

    We've completed three innings here at Safeco Field, where the Nats lead the Mariners 1-0 behind Jesus Flores' RBI single in the first. Published June 14 2008
