UPDATE - It is Capps, an official release was issued Wednesday morning.
Just got an interesting e-mail, the lead of which I will share:
The Nationals will be hosting a conference call on Wednesday at 11:30 am, affording internet media/bloggers an opportunity to interview the club’s newest free-agent acquisition (details of that signing still to come).
Who is it? I can't find anything anywhere, so if it is someone new someone has done a good job keeping a lid on it. Checked Nats.com, the Nats Journal, the Tim ***oops, check that one. They'd probably have it by now.
I assume from the way it is worded that it is someone new, not Capps or Marquis since we have details of those signings. Or maybe it is Capps - and this is just making it official. I don't recall a press conference with him earlier because it was Christmas Eve or something. So, yeah, maybe it is Capps. There isn't a release on him anywhere on Nats.com.
Or maybe not??
Speaking of the Times, congrats to Ben Goessing for landing the gig as MASN's online reporter/blogger. He'll have on-air duties, too. Good for him, good for them. Now, let's find a way to get Mark Zuckerman hooked up somewhere.
Still no idea what the Post is doing to do. I hope the Post has an idea.
