    Maybe he was thinking of Anderson Machado instead of Alejandro Machado.

    I know I would.

    I feel terrible for the seamster or seamstress who has to put numbers and names on the back of the Nats' jerseys. It has to be at least a 60 hour work week.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Wouldn't have minded getting Van Buren based on his minor league track record, though his control issues in the majors are certainly odd. Tim Redding also seemed to have decent 5th starter potential. Oh well.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Josh Hall was just starting to show that he is finally back to where he was before his injury. Could be a good pick by JimBo. That said, do all GM's have soft spots for guys they drafted?

    I was thinking Valdez was one of the guys that Ross was impressed with when he was rehabing. I searched the forums and found the post which had the news posted from Marcs blog:

    SCOUTING REPORT - Class AA Chattanooga's pitching staff has been solid all season, and Ross was impressed with what he saw in his two rehab games with the Lookouts.

    Ross caught right-handers Josh Hall and Eddy Valdez, with both turning in solid starts on his watch. Valdez in particular was impressive, allowing just three hits in a season-high 7 1/3 innings while walking two and striking out six.

    "The guy (Tuesday) night threw really well - Valdez," said Ross. "He really impressed me. They've got a good team
