    After a disastrous year for the Nats, GM Mike Rizzo fired all his coaching staff. Then, in a suprise twist, Ted Lurner turned on the General Manager, making him pack. So, its former player Darell Pendelton who gets the role. Pendelton than hired Dusty Baker for manager, Mike Maddux, brother of Greg Maddux, for pitching coach, and Davey Lopes, who will help the Nats get more stolen bags than their 57 from last year. Mike Rizzo, according to reports, has filled in an application for manager of the Reds.

    Then, under Pendelton, they traded away setup man Drew Storen for stolen base machine Ben Revere, signed middle infielders Daniel Murphy and Stephen Drew from the Mets and Yankees. Pendelton has said more trades/signings are to come before Spring Training is over. They are targeting, according to Ken Rosenthal, free agent reliever Vic Black, Astros reliever Luke Gregorson, and C Carlos Corporan.

    3/16 The Nats have signed 40 year old Alex Rodriguez to a minor leauge contract with a invitation to spring training, early this morning. When asked about this, A-Rod said he was "desperate" for a contract, major or minor leauge, and is "pumped" about being in the organization of a team in the postseason chase. The contract was one year, 5,000,000. To make space for the 40 year old, the Nationals have released Matt Grace.

            There were many Tomahawk Chops and WILLLLLSOOONs at Turner Field today. Max Scherzer and Julio Teheran were deadlocked for the first three innings, then Mad Max let one slip and gave up a solo shot to Freddie Freeman. Then, in the top of the sixth inning, the Buffalo hit a tying shot to center field. Just before the Atlanta fans got up to stretch, Werth blasted a double, scoring three, than advanced to third. Scherzer was relieved by long reliever Sammy Solis after the stretch. Solis than gave up a triple to Matt Kemp. One pitch later, Kemp scored on sac fly to Werth, signaling the end of Solis's short outing. Oliver Perez came in on a double switch and ended the inning. Next, Wilson added another homer to his tally, giving the Nats the lead. After Desmond Jennings grounded out (he replaced Bryce Harper in the double switch), Julio Teheran was sent to the showers on a double switch, giving Ian Krol his first appearance of 2016. After an error by Jace Peterson two outs later, Clint Robinson singled home a run, putting runners at first and second. Werth than proved 38 year olds can play baseball by hitting a TRIPLE to score two. Werth than scored on a Rendon bunt. Robinson stayed in the game defensively and Marc Rzepcynski came and pitched two shut out innings to close the game. Oliver Perez got the win, and Julio Teheran got the loss.

              BREAKING NEWS: Just two days after the season started, the Brewers signed former Nats closer Jonathan Papelbon to 1 year deal. They have released minor leuge right fielder Micheal Curran. Reports are that the Nationals have placed a claim on him, one day after A-Rod cleared optional waivers.

                      Kinda thinking of trading Micheal A at deadline... long time off though. I'll probably just make some small deals for catchers and center fielders.

                            Wheels were spinning in D.C. tonight, as the Nats and division rival Marlins combined for five stolen base attempts in the Marlins 5-1 win. Offensive highlights were hard to come by for the hometown Nationals, as their only run was on a Bryce Harper dinger. On the subject of the homer, it came after Bryce swung on two outside sliders then took two two-seamers at his head. He responded to that with a home run, glaring at pitcher Chen while rounding first. The Marlins runs came with mostly scattered singles and doubles, though Chen hit a two run triple two center. Starter Gio Gonzalez had trouble locating his pitches, having 89 pitches through six innings.
