Smoker had a good start tonight and although his ERA is not the greatest his 18 K's in 13 ip shows he still has the stuff. I think him and McGeary will both bounce back this year.

It looks like Smoker probably didn't get stretched out all the way going into the season.  I'm interested to see how he does in his next few starts.

Ugh, Glenn Gibson just threw a wild pitch on an intentional walk in the 11th inning.  As a result, the Delmarva runner on 2nd base came all the way around to score the walk off run.  What a dagger.

Any prospectiness left for this guy? I mean, we have come full circle by re-signing him and cutting Dukes, but otherwise . . .

Maybe a middle reliever down the road, more likely "inventory"

That's a lot of years in the NYPL. Never a good sign when a guy is on the OD roster 2 years running.

Yea It'd be good to see him build off this one...Hagerstown is where your really seeing the work being done down on the farm every single position seems to have a legit prospect at it and J.R. Higley is still on the DL down there. We have some good pitchers like N. Karns, B. King and B. Meyers who haven't thrown a pitch yet this season. Should definitely be an exciting one.

J.P. Ramirez might be one of my favorite prospects in the system and he just started catching fire.  His swing is cash-money.  Another guy I really like is Marcus Jones.  The OF down in Hagerstown is stacked this year.

J.P. and Destin have gotten off to great starts. Not really a Marcus Jones fan he's old for the level had trouble there last year and should be doing much better than he is considering how old he is for the league. Rather see E. Perez get things together and excel with his counter parts in the outfield I love his speed on the bases. I think one of the most impressive developments in the minors is M. Burgess hitting .304 so far this year with his new swing hopefully he can sustain this I'm also looking for his power to come back.

He was released by Tampa and signed by the Nats well before the start of ST.

The Gibson/Dukes trade has got to be the most EPIC FAIL trade in the history of baseball.

Nothing.  I sent an email to the Hagerstown announcer, who is usually pretty good about getting back to me, but tonight's game ended really late and he probably will not get back to me until tomorrow.  I am sure Brian will have something on his site about it before I get word.

Brad Pea**** had a career high 10 strikeouts this morning.  Everything he threw was be swung at and missed, awesome performance.  And only in 5 innings too!  The one blemish was a 2 run HR.  P-Nats down 1-2 in the 6th.

How come P-Nats and Hburg played this morning? Rain make up?

They do it like every other week.  Usually it is kids day, today it is middle grade science day.  Sometimes they have local camps come in, but Hagerstown, Potomac, and Harrisburg all do these types of things.

Thanks. Seems to typify the Rizzo reign, no?

Quote from Doug Harris, head of the Nationals player development:

Quote
"I'm not a big believer in prematurely moving guys. That's happened here in the past, and set some things back," Harris said. "(General manager) Mike (Rizzo) has a plan in place that's slow early and moves fast at the end."

I like it.  Bowden and Brown promoted players way too quickly and without much of a plan for them.

Understood.  I like the report that Hood lost 20-25 pounds this offseason, sending a positive message to the FO.

Excellent :clap: That's exactly how it should be done.

There's too much adjusting to be done at the lower levels to be rushing players like Bowden did.  Everything from the rookie leagues to high A has something distinct and different from the previous level.
