Just got to Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter….a few comments before Vazquez v. Marquis:
After leading since the second inning, he Nats saw the Mets come back to tie Tuesday’s game at three in the eighth on a home run off the bat of Cory Vaughn, the son of former Brewer (among other allegiances) Greg Vaughn. But, the Nats grabbed the win on an RBI double in the tenth from Laynce Nix against former Durham Bull Dale Thayer (not to be confused with former Colorado State head coach Dale Layer). Some thoughts about the game:
Hope you all caught me at 4:45 “On The Block” with Brent Axe on our new flagship, The Score 1260. I shared some of these thoughts from the Nats’ 14-9 win today with Brent….
Good morning from the booth at Alliance Bank Stadium. The Chiefs are off and rolling, on pace for 144-0. A few notes from the first two wins over the IronPigs from Allentown:
The Washington Nationals released outfielder Elijah Dukes earlier this week after speing three years in the organization. The Nationals decided that Dukes who struggled this spring would not be in their plans for the future and gave him his unconditional release.
That opens up the rightfield spot for a number of players who are still in camp: Speedy slap hitters Roger Bernadina and Willy Taveras add more speed and defense, while prospect Justin Maxwell can provide excellent defense, speed and has more power.
Veterans Kevin Mench and Chris Duncan also have played well and former Chief Mike Morse has impressed Nats brass with his bat as well this spring.
Stephen Strasburg and Drew Storen both were optioned to AA-Harrisburg on Saturday and will begin the 2010 season with the Senators. Both pitchers were impressive in spring training after being drafted number #1 and number #10 in last season June draft. Strasburg out of San Diego State and Storen from Stanford.
Nationals also optioned lefthanded pitchers Matt Chico and Doug Slaten and catcher Jamie Burke to Syracuse today in another round of cuts. The Nationals currently have 39 players in camp.
