Nats320

Well, I wasn't expecting to BLOG over the next four days, but when Its RAINING CATS AND DOGS at Cape Canaveral for 2 straight hours, there wasn't much to do, so I checked up on Nationals.com and read that, MY MAIN MAN!!--Damian Jackson had been RELEASED by the Washington Nationals!!

AND I JUMPED RIGHT OUT OF MY CHAIR--SCREAMING "YEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!"

ITS ABOUT TIME!! Made my day, which started at 3AM this morning, a whole lot better.

No use saying anymore other than HE WAS TERRIBLE!!!!! And, A Clubhouse Cancer!!

Makes Jimbo look foolish for signing him in the first place.

Gottta Get Back to Work.

The good news is that Damian Jackson has been let go, finally...The bad news is that it is to make room for Preston Wilson!!(Joke)
Tomo Ohka bats left-handed for the first time in his career and drives in four runs last night as Brewers trounce Rockies 12-6! Is this the secret for the Nats - to have all our pitchers bat from the other side of the plate, since none of the new guys look like they have EVER batted before, and our inability to get a productive bunt down to move runners up. Must have been a contagion from D.Jackson transmitted in the locker room showers. Now, perhaps with a bit of Lysol, it can be eliminated.

Soriano is leading the entire majors in total bases, incidentally, with 307 - next best, Ryan Howard in NL with 285, and David Ortiz in AL with 295. He is having an incredible year, statistically: could still win the HR title in NL, and have 40 steals, and more than 20 put-outs, to boot! He is fifth in slugging percentage at .600 and only seven behind Utley in run production, at present. If he catches on fire to end the season, the statistics could be alarmingly sensational.

Arbitrator set him at $10 million for this season, $2 below what he sought, as I seem to recall: he now can play left-field, and is having his finest overall year. I would think that his agent is thinking $16 million for next year, and a five year deal for around $75 million total.

I would think that Kasten, in the Nationals overall context, sees him worth $14 million next year(40% bump), and no more than an average of $11 million for three years thereafter, for a four year $47 million offer, or so...

Realistically, if my numbers' gap scenario is even close to correct, Soriano is going to be one and done for the Nats - leaving a legacy of one, if not, the best overall offensive performance of any Washington major leaguer, perhaps exceeding Hondo's record of 48 home runs, in the bargain...

Team will have some explaining to do at that point - probably why they put him on waivers recently, so they can claim that they "tried to deal him."

Finally, if the reports are accurate that Castro cannot throw all the way from second base to first base, Soriano shall be leaving a team that has lived up to the antics of the '62 Mets at times this year, for sure! (Reminds me of Heath Schuler, hapless Redskins QB Number One draft pick who could do everything but throw more than 30 yards in the air.)

Finally, while RFK is a large stadium, it may not be large enough to seat all the players who have donned a Nationals uniform in 2006, at this rate, if they were to come back for a reunion...

I saw this turkey play during spring training at Viera and he consistently made two errors every game and didn't hit squat. Jackson couldn't field, couldn't hit, couldn't bunt and he was a poison in clubhouse. He should have been released back in April so this is long overdue. Now, if Kasten would show Bowden the door, we would be making serious progress.
