Riggleman is still trying to decide how obligated the Nats are to the Fish.

The Nats asked Guzzie to play 2B next year.  http://therocket.mlblogs.com/archives/2009/09/nats_ask_guzman_to_play_second.html

Quote
The Nationals may not be looking to sign a free agent like second baseman Orlando Hudson this offseason.

It was learned that general manager Mike Rizzo and interim manager Jim Riggleman had a private meeting with shortstop Cristian Guzman on Thursday afternoon and asked him to switch to second base for the 2010 season.

Guzman, who did not give Rizzo and Riggleman an answer, was in shock and told them he never played second base in his life. The only other position Guzman has played other than shortstop was in the 2008 All-Star Game when he played third base for the National League team.

If Guzman agrees to the switch, that means the Nationals most likely will look for a shortstop during the offseason.

Will Ian Desmond get that chance to become the everyday shortstop? It's hard to tell, but he got off to a quick start on Thursday night by going 2-for-4 and driving in four runs in his Major League debut against the Phillies.

Washington has been concerned about Guzman's defense almost all season. They have been alarmed that Guzman is having a problems going to his left on groundballs.

In the past, Riggleman believed that a foot injury has hampered Guzman's ability to go to his left, but no one knows how Riggleman feels now because he was not available for comment.

Both Rizzo and Guzman declined to talk about the possible move to second.

What the hell is the matter with these pansies? If the team asks you to do it, do it. Do it for your teammates at least.

So, we're going to have a defenensive liability at 2b and 1b?  That right side of the infield doesn't exactly make me excited defensively.  Dunn seems to have improved over there, but he's not a very good 1b and I don't expect him to be by the time Spring Training rolls around.

Yeah experiment now while the record sucks. If the Hitting Machine gets comfy now, he can be really useful next season.

A HR and a double and Riggleman doesn't have the courtesy to start the kid two games in a row.

Alberto Gonzalez goes 3/3 with 3 doubles two days ago, gets pinch hit for in the 8th and then gets benched in favor of Pete Orr two days in a row.

Desmond piles up 4 RBIs in his first game and gets benched.

not even funny. this is just embarrassing.

I was never really on his bandwagon, even though I laughed at your thread.

I still wasn't certain either way until I heard Bob Carpenter rambling last night about something Riggleman said.

He said that Pete Orr is "one of those underappreciated ballplayers who does his job so well and doesn't get noticed." :spaz:

GTFO, Riggleman.  He HAS to be related to eagleskins.

Your 2010 starting second baseman: Pete Orr
Quote
Unlike last year, it appears that Orr is opening some eyes. In addition to hitting the baseball, he is showing himself to be fundamentally sound with his glove.

"I'm shooting for [staying with the Nationals for a long time]," said Orr. "When I got here, [interim manager] Jim [Riggleman] said to use this opportunity to win a job. That's what my goal is.

Alberto Gonzalez got benched because he is terrible at baseball despite one career game. He shouldn't have been in the lineup in the first place or the roster for that matter.

I'm confident Rizzo won't let that happen.
