  1. Tender decisions

    Nov 30, 2010, 3:38 PM EDT

    Photo courtesy Bill Scheuerman The Nats face a tough decision with Chien-Ming Wang, who never pitched in 2010. As everyone agonizes over another free agent pitcher coming off the market — Jorge de la Rosa has re-signed with the Rockies for perhaps as much as three years and $32 million — and awaits confirmation that…

  2. What pitcher should Nats acquire?

    Nov 29, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    Javier Vazquez's signing with the Marlins yesterday depleted one more name off the list of potential Nationals pitching acquisitions, a list that is losing some of its luster. Not that Vazquez's decision to take $7 million and move closer to home in Florida instead of coming to D.C. was a devastating blow to the Nationals'…

  3. Vazquez signs with Marlins

    Nov 28, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    Cross Javier Vazquez off the list of possible additions to the Nationals’ rotation. The veteran right-hander came to terms today on a one-year deal with the Marlins, according to multiple reports out of Miami. Vazquez is coming off a down year with the Yankees in which he went 10-10 with a 5.32 ERA over 157…

  4. Thanksgiving in NatsTown

    Nov 24, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    Everyone has something to be thankful for this time of the year (or any time of the year, for that matter) and that certainly holds true across NatsTown. As a matter of fact, I somehow managed to interview more than a dozen Nationals players, staff members and team officials today and got them to tell…

  5. Mattheus outrighted to Syracuse

    Nov 24, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    The Nationals outrighted right-hander Ryan Mattheus to Class AAA Syracuse today, clearing a spot on the 40-man roster in case any new players are acquired. Mattheus, 27, missed most of 2010 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He appeared in 10 rehab games in the Gulf Coast League and with short-season Class A Vermont late…

  6. Espinosa to have hand surgery

    Nov 24, 2010, 12:59 AM EDT

    Danny Espinosa will have surgery tomorrow to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his right hand, a procedure that will sideline him six weeks but gives him ample time to recover before spring training. Espinosa had been playing winter ball in Puerto Rico, where he was hitting .281 with two homers, eight RBI,…

  7. Nats offer Dunn arbitration

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:31 PM EDT

    The Nationals have offered arbitration to Adam Dunn, according to a club source, ensuring the team will get two draft picks as compensation if the free agent first baseman signs elsewhere this winter. The way the market is shaping up, though, Dunn may not find any suitors more enticing than the Nats. Despite his hope…

  8. Frazier, McConnell sign minor deals

    Nov 23, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    The Nationals have signed outfielder/first baseman Jeff Frazier and shortstop Chris McConnell to minor-league contracts, according to Baseball America’s Matt Eddy. Frazier, 28, hit .256 with 25 homers and 73 RBI last season for Toledo, the Tigers’ Class AAA affiliate. He led the International League with 73 extra-base hits and made his big-league debut in…

  9. Zim 16th, Dunn 21st in MVP vote

    Nov 22, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    Joey Votto won the National League MVP award this afternoon in a landslide over Albert Pujols. Votto got a staggering 31 of 32 first-place votes by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America, with Pujols getting the other one. Hard to complain with the line of thinking displayed by my fellow scribes. You could…

  10. Arbitration, AFL and Upton

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

This being Thanksgiving week and all, here's a smorgasbord of quick-hit Nats stuff to ponder over while you make your grocery list and prepare your strategy to walk into Best Buy at 4:30 a.m. Friday and snag a new…
