Alberto Gonzalez: left glut contusion

The Nationals began the game with three men available on the bench: Pete Orr, Ronnie Belliard and Wil Nieves.

Now, they have four players on the day-to-day list.

In the sixth inning tonight, SS Alberto Gonzalez was forced to leave the game after he slid into third after a wild pitch from Aaron Cook. Orr replaced Gonzalez in the game and scored on an Emilio Bonifacio triple.

Gonzalez, examined in the Nats clubhouse, has a left glut contusion.

Yes, he's day to day.

By the way, NatsNut...

You were accurate to call me out for the outage joke. Lame. Outdated, too. Humor like that won't get ya any calls from Judd Apatow.

Get 11 hits against Aaron Cook and you deserve better.

Good to know it's not the right glut. I hear that's a tougher injury to bounce back from...

Back after a vacation with the daughters. Wow, what a difference a week makes. I did catch Livo vs. Cliff Lee in Cleveland last Friday, followed by a Cubs loss in Wrigley last Saturday (what a great park, we need to import some of that), as well as the game in Columbus this past Saturday night (ummm, not a good park, but a new one is on the way). All good. Love the new MIs (E-Bone and the AG) and join with those who wish the departed vets well despite their struggles here. Pitching. Speed. Defense. Count me in.

Forgot to mention that we all flew around the Midwest on fly balls hit by Willie Harris. Oh, and Carpy still sucks. Zoiks.

CBS' Dobrow: Add Tim Redding to the long and fat list of players (Dmitri Young, Ronnie Belliard, etc.) that Jim Bowden declined to trade when they were worth something. The Nats lead the league in toolsy/miscreant outfielders (Elijah Dukes, Wily Mo Pena et al), even if they currently rank 47th in runs scored.

Washington Times' Heller: Their chances of escaping the basement in 2008 are roughly the same as those of Ralph Nader becoming president of these United States. Washington endured 33 years without major league baseball. Oops, here's a late flash. Make that 36 years and counting. Chipper Jones, probably could outhit any eight Washington position players all by himself.
Then again, so could eight guys from the nearest bar. Here's some excellent advice for the terrible Gnats: Don't show up for the season's final games. Throw up a white flag before your remaining fans throw up period.

Wapo's Solomon: Are we watching the worst baseball team in Washington's history? Ex-Wapo's Gildea: This team is worse than any of the Senators expansion teams.


Ouch, Dobrow, take it easy on me! And enough of the hometown haters, too.

SO SOMEONE TELL ME THE SIX (ONLY) PLAYERS I HAVE SIGNED FOR NEXT SEASON. $30 MILLION. EXTRA POINTS FOR NEATNESS.

Estoy firmado! Segue to Segway! Go away FBI! In the name of General Manager and YMOS James Gordon Bowden III, Son, and Holy Ghost, Amen.

Jim B, breathe deeply, the 2008 (II) team is 3-0 and looks like another notch will be added tonight.

Well, the no-hit MI certainly has hurt us, as most people thought.

28 runs in 4 wins. I take back my silly acquisitions. Rauchey and Jhonny come back!

Who is our victim tomorrow? De la Rosa?

Heal, buttocks, heal.

The Yankees just lost Joba Chamberlain to a shoulder injury, and the game to the Rangers on a walk-off Grand Slam. They're 5 1/2 out. Cashman has Trader Jim's phone number.

Wow Willie Harris! This is as good as it gets this year for the D.C. sports fan. 4-0 streak with a win in that horror of a ball park for visitors, and the Redskins will never look better this year than they edid last night. Life is good, unless you have just suffered a disabling butt bruise - get well soon, AG!

Hey Chico, great job on the Lenny Harris feature. That is great stuff, just exactly the kind of thing a lot of us have been hoping to see. I hope we will be treated to more features like that in the future.

Substantively, I'm not sure what to think about Lenny after reading it, which may have been the intended effect. But my initial reaction is that while Lenny might be able to break things down and understand what the hitters are doing wrong, he is not a strong teacher. I think this quote sums it up best:

"Everything we've got, everything they need to know to succeed, it's here!" Harris said at one point, tapping the scouting report on Moyer. "But I can't do it for them. I take all the heat, but that's okay. I want the heat. They're kids."

With all of the "toolsy" but raw talent JimBo is counting on to develop, seems to me that a guy like Lenny is not the right guy for the job. I'd be surprised if he is back as the hitting coach in 2009.

Watched two games tonight...toggled back and forth. Watched the Braves broadcast so as to see what they had to say about Skip Caray and I'm glad I did. They have had many clips and stories. That guy had a sense of wit and humor about him and he will be sorely missed. He's in the Braves hall of fame. Watched the Nats also, how about that, 4 in row. Strive for 5.

A note on the Nats game (Rockies feed). The Rocky broadcasters said they thought one of the people who gets little but deserves more credit for the Nats recent successes....Lenny Harris. They also pointed out that since the Allstar break the Nats bullpen has the lowest ERA in baseball. I didn't know that.

SC Nats Fan - Skip Caray was such a dry wit that he had to be reigned in by the suits on more than one occasion. He didn't bite the hand that fed him, but he sure did zing it, and he made the Braves more fun to watch. They were not really good until 1990, and he started with them in 1976 - that's 14 years of broadcasting for a mediocre team, and his quirky, self-effacing style helped give the Braves a nationwide fan base. We come to our TV's to forget the cares of the day and have some fun rooting for our team. Skip was slyly very good at making us care and making us laugh.

Welcome back, Bob L. Sounds like you had a great trip. Hope that you said "hey" to Jamey Carroll for us. :)

Also, good to see you, Jenn!
