My apologies

This move to get Logan Kensing doesn't exactly make me jump up and down and go, "YEAH. WE'RE ON THE WAY NOW BABEEEE."

Sure, it's a low-risk, high-reward thing. As he is, he's no worse than what's out there now and the hope is he gets better. He has a pretty good body of work that indicates he is what he is and that isn't going to change.

Jason Bergmann is this year's yo-yo man. Up, down, up, down, up, down. My next poll may be when he's back. And then when he's down again. And back.

Kensing has one career save in the big leagues. He's not the closer solution.

Anyone surprised that Ledezma and Shell cleared waivers? You mean, no one else wants them??

Is this the kid from Florida? If so, he's the one who pitched in the Valley League. Nice.

Ryan said...

Just checked. He was a Valley League All Star for the Harrisonburg Turks in 2002.

We can use all the help we can get at this point, no?

Go Turks.
Yes, the Nats can use help. I'm just not sure this is much help.
We'll see.

I'm not sure this is much help. We traded youth for a 5+ ERA.

"Youth" is relative-Gunderson was our 48th round pick in 2007 and is a 24-year-old in A ball. His numbers have been nice, but he has a low K/9 and ridiculous strand percentages and BABIP.

PS-my word verification is "miledg"
