I don't know about you

but I am willing to give this guy a good look.
This is a cut-and-paste straight from the Nationals Journal's cut-and-paste of the minor league report.

HE'S SMOOTHER THAN JACK DANIELS: OF Mike Daniel , 23, is batting at a .341 clip (28-for-82) with 4 home runs and 13 RBI over his last 21 games...Daniel, a 7th-round selection from the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, is 18-for-50 (.345) with 2 doubles, a triple, 3 home runs and 12 RBI in 15 June his first season at the Double-A level, he is hitting .320 with 7 home runs, 31 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 64 games.

Me again - I think Wily Mo got banged up running into the wall yesterday and needs some time on the DL. Bring this kid up, stick him out there and let's see what he can do.
Must check Nationals Farm Authority. Is Maxwell still hurt?

I'm also willing to bring this guy up and stick him at first base for a while (also a cut-and-paste from the cut-and-paste):

LUKE, I AM YOUR FATHER: C Luke Montz ranks 2nd in the Eastern League with 49 RBI and a .571 slugging percentage, and is tied for 2nd in the league with 13 home runs... Montz, selected in the 17th round of the 2003 First-Year Player Draft, paces EL catchers in extra-base hits (11 doubles, 13 homers), home runs and RBI...the 24-year-old is hitting .358 (24-for-67) with 9 home runs and 42 RBI with RISP.

Shake some stuff up. Now.

ps - any guesses on how they make room for Mock? Is Hill's forearm hurting enough for a trip to the DL? Is Mock really the best choice?

Maxwell is still in Florida and expected back in about 2 weeks.

Watched Mike Daniel last summer, and he keeps improving. Absolutely deserves the chance, especially since the Nats OF is performing so poorly.

I can hear Wily Mo's agony from here. The man is hurt. Get him on the DL.

Hill needs to go to the pen, cut Colome!

Happy to see anyone but Young (and the drug pusher) at first base. CATCH THE BALL! You are wearing a glove, it won't hurt!
