  1. Looks like Rendon is back on the fast track. He and Goodwin are on target to make their MLB debuts some time next year. And the rich keep on getting richer.

  2. So does Rendon’s promotion finally spell a promotion for Skole?

    I’d guess this has AFL implications, by freeing up a spot for one of Meyer or Karns to be the single A exception?

    • You have to figure Skole’s long overdue promotion is at hand now.
      Am definitely surprised at Rendon’s promotion, but it gives the F.O. 2 weeks to get him acclimated to better pitching.
      This gives the Nats 2 potential big time stars knocking at the door next year. Pretty exciting!

  3. So who gets let go to make room for Rendon?

  4. Wow, they aren’t messing around with Rendon.

    It’s hard not to imagine where this kid would be if he hadn’t gotten hurt in April.

    I’m guessing if he hadn’t, Cesar Izturis wouldn’t be a National.

    Also, I’ll be curious to see if he plays anywhere besides 3B and DH.

  5. Do the GCL Nats have a gamecast for their games?

    I wanted to see how Giolito was doing but couldn’t seem to find a link.
