If Olsen fails or one of the starters gets injured, I hope Martin gets a chance. I think the team should move him to the bullpen after the season. He can be effective than Bergmann in that role.

I think everyone we have as a starter could be better than Bergmann(referring to Mock, Baletser, Stammen but don't want to give up on  them just yet).

That's the attitude that's the problem. It's not giving up, it's contributing to the Nats. Service time is service time regardless of how you pitch.

:az: kobernus is 4-for-5 tonight with two rbi's and a double and he's batting .563 in his 4th game with hagerstown.

Yeah but when I say give up on them I mean as a role for the rotation. I think they'd be solid as relievers. It seems they all, usually, have a good inning or two. Maybe a conversion would make use of that?

Now you are cooking.  Multi inning relievers are money.

Yep he's off to a great start and had the game winning RBI tonight

Definitely.  Clippard's 3 innings against the Mets was one of our most valuable outings so far.

So which one of our prospects got injured tonight? :?

Hope for a quick promotion.  I'd like to see him in High A second half of the year, if not sooner.  He's a college kid who lost time.  At 22, he's older than average for the Sally League.

Wow, second runner thrown out this week by Eury Perez.  Apparently he has a pretty strong and very accurate arm.  One of the plays was at home, the one today was a runner trying to stretch a double.

What's the news on Brad Meyers?

Is there a reason he hasn't gotten into a game yet? Is he hurt? Are they trying to limit his innings?

Hood also threw out a runner at 3B from RF.

Yeah, I knew Hood had a cannon, he had a few outfield assists last season in Vermont, but I had no idea Perez had such a good arm.

Sucks about Meyers, what is that like 5 of the top 30 prospects that are already on the DL?

Norris
Espinosa
Jamie
Meyers
Morris

I have a feeling that we are going to be disappointed by the team's farm system this year. Reminiscent of 2008. Other than Strasburg and Storen, I don't see anyone having a great year to excite us. That is why the draft is so important. The Lerners can't afford to go cheap in this draft again.

My boys Kobernus and Hood are tearing up SAL pitching, wonder when they'll get bumped up to Potomac.

My guess is Kobernus could be moved up to Potomac as soon as this month.  I don't see Hood going anywhere for awhile, he is still struggling with laying off pitches in the dirt.

Yeah Kobernus should be in Potomac by the end of the month.  He could be on the fast track.  It'll be fun to watch him and Espinosa battle for 2B.

As for Hood, the k's are a bit disappointing (14 ks/1 bb), but that's expected because he is raw. 

I love his other numbers though: .351 AVG, 2 2B, HR, .486 SLG.

Yeah, not saying he isn't showing a lot of promise, but the fact that he is so raw is going to be one of the main reasons the Nats move him so slowly up the ladder.

Agreed.  I think he'll see Potomac maybe in late July/early August if he does well.  I'm really excited about his future and I think the FO really thinks highly of him.

Not sure he'll get to Potomac this year. I can see the Nats treating him like they have Burgess or Norris. Give him a full season to show he's ready and then promote him to Potomac for the 2011 season. He's still young enough that it would make sense to do that

Sounds to me like he's not a blue-chip guy, but he could develop into a solid contributor off the bench. Not a regular starter, but a utility guy.
