Only at The Washington Times: Mark Zuckerman and Ben Goessling blog on the Washington Nationals.
Let's chat about the Nats on Friday at 3:30 p.m. We'll cover the Winter Meetings, the free agent market, the non-tender deadline and anything else on your mind.
The Winter Meetings are all done, and the Nationals, of course, are happy with the progress they made. That's the predictable thing to say publicly, but in their case, how productive a week this was won't be determined for some time.
The Nationals will take Yankees reliever Zach Kroenke first in Thursday's Rule 5 draft and offer him back to his former team as the player to be named later in the Brian Bruney deal, according to a source familiar with discussions.
GM Mike Rizzo confirmed the team is interested in "most of the pitchers we've been linked to," which includes Joel Pineiro, Jason Marquis, Vicente Padilla and Jon Garland.
There's no news on the Nationals' front so far today, but agent Scott Boras spoke a few minutes ago about the team signing catcher Ivan Rodriguez.
Amidst doubts about their signing of Ivan Rodriguez and uncertainty about the future of catcher Jesus Flores, the Nationals confidently moved forward in their pursuit of a veteran starter.

The Nationals have agreed with former Rangers catcher Ivan Rodriguez on a two-year deal, according to a club source. The contract is believed to be worth a total of $6 million.
After one day at the Winter Meetings, it appears the Nationals are going to have a busy week. They made the first trade of the session in Indianapolis, and they've entertained plenty of interest in outfielder Josh Willingham. There's also a possibility they'll get in the mix for a veteran pitchers.
Jim Riggleman expects Brian Bruney to be a late-inning option and a possible closer for the Nationals in 2010.
The Nationals have made the first trade of the Winter Meetings, acquiring right-handed reliever Brian Bruney from the Yankees for a player to be named later.

The Nats announced their minor-league staff for 2010, mostly reshuffling managers who had already been in the organzation.
A few updates on the Nats news of the day, and a thank-you for all the warm wishes you've sent us in the last 24 hours.
Today's deadline for teams to offer arbitration to their free agents could have an impact on the Nats down the road.
