I want to trade Parra, Rendon and pitcher for Joey Votto
Rendon's your boy.
Imagaine Votto and Zimmerman on the corners for years, holy cow. they look a lot a like too.
I'll get over losing my boy if he nets us a legit HOF first baseman.
Yeah, good luck with that, pitchers
Pity the Nats can't trade him til August.
Wooooooooo q rapido llegan las bolas en tercera mi madre!!!
According to babelfish, that translates to "fast q arrives the balls in third my mother"
I'm going to assume in reality it's something like "mother fucker the balls get here fast at third"
His mom is definitely a whore also though.
We seriously are lacking in blackness. Bernadina doesn't count. E-Jax is the only legitimate brother on the roster.
What team isn't lacking in blackness though? Brothas just don't play baseball anymore.
Jeffrey Hammonds was so good. Let's lure him out of retirement.
I was so embarrassed when Desmond handed out the Jackie Robinson award to the boys and girls club on Jackie Robinson day last year.
This was the case last season. Especially after Hairston got traded. But we have a strong Latin flavor.
The Washington Nationals have expressed interest in outfielder Gerardo Parra, according to a report on MLB.com.
A Diamondbacks source said the clubs are not currently discussing a trade, which is good news to Parra.
maybe with zumaya hurting, the nats can revisit denard span?
Added Braden: “It’s the best left-handed breaking ball in baseball, period. He makes grown men look absolutely juvenile. And it’s a pitch he knows can throw at any time, whenever, wherever. He could tell a guy, ‘Curveball down the middle, good luck,’ and the guy won’t even be able to get the bat off his shoulder, because he’s bailing out. It’s unfair — because then, he’s going to run 96 [mph] up at your chest.”
Gonzalez’s transformation has been tangible and stunning. After a breakout season in 2010 (15-9, 3.23), he was named an all-star last year in the middle of a 16-12 season with a 3.12 ERA. His ERA dropped each year he spent in Oakland, while his walk rate declined each year.
Asked how Gonzalez will perform in his new environment, Braden offered a bold prediction.
Stephen “Strasburg has all the hype in the world,” he said, “but here’s what’s going to happen: You guys who don’t know Gio, you’ll end up more impressed with what he does. You already know what to expect out of Strasburg. But when you see Gio, you’re going to go: ‘[Expletive]. I knew he was good. But [expletive].”
No Zim deal yet but agent says: "both sides are optimistic that an agreement can be reached."
Adam Kilgore @AdamKilgoreWP
More Van Wagenen: Sides "working on a structure that will allow the team to continue to add talent and establish a winner."
Rizzo: "I don't see any major stumbling blocks." Announcement almost certain to come tomorrow.
The deal is not done, Rizzo said, but the issues left are minor. Details likely coming later tonight or tomorrow.
Offseason champs bitches.
What time will this be announced? I'd like to wake up to it instead of sitting around waiting all day. FYI, I woke up around 2 today and I see no reason it shouldn't be similar tomorrow.
i'm sure around time for workouts, so it should be early. they'll play it up all day tomorrow and into monday so the national networks will catch on (ESPN/MLB Network will go in depth).
it's a big signing.
okay so in "Maryland's season is over, it's really time to switch the attention to the Nats" post part 2 ...
i'm really excited for Nats baseball. I'm going to spend the next two hours looking online for some new fresh Nats gear. May even pull the trigger tonight on a Morse Beast Mode shirt. Not sure red or gray, though.
Sounds like Nats will have presser tomorrow before workouts to make it official.
the CF hogie was looking for.
