  1. Nice Nick Lee outing in the vacuum of DLd
    Mooneyham and time frame between now and amateur
    Draft …. Plus Purke rehab starts….
    My hunch guess on Nats puck with 68 number slot
    Aaron Knapp C/ 1b Cal Bears. Son of Chris Knapp one
    Time Chisox/ Angel RHP?? Connection to Kline and Rizzo??
    Twins surely would not pass on Minnesota Golden Gopher
    LHP Tom Windle.
    Shall we nickname Henry Rodrieguez Head to the
    Car/ beer cooler/ cable remote Henry??? Lol!

    • The cupboard is getting a tad bear in the lower minors. They’ve got to replenish more than they have with the Morse trade. Let’s hope they find some sleepers in the rounds after the 1st.

  2. The draft doesn’t hold quite the thrill it had in past years. It just doesn’t seem like the Nats can pull off any coups without a first round pick.

    As for Henry Rodriguez, I think it is time to give up. Do we really need a flame-thrower only for garbage time, or to come in to lose a close game?

  3. Luke, all comments aside, do you think Grace was deserving of this promotion, and what is his upside?

    • He’s lefthanded and throws strikes and proven he can get A+ batters out. I think this promotion falls into “Let’s see what he can do” category.
