Scott Podsednik?

Granted his release by the Blue Jays today.

He'd be a solid stop gap at leadoff.

Career .279/.340/.381/.721 line

Compared to what? His OBP would be worlds better than what the Nats put out.

340 is too low for a leadoff guy

I guess. But as a Nats leadoff guy?

Leadoff hitter OBP in 2010 - .300
Leadoff hitter OBP in 2011 - .234

I don't know if the Nats can afford to pass on average OBP guys when they have NO OBP guys.

Lead-off hitters in 2011 are hitting .262/.326/.390. Offense is down worse this year than it was last year. This isn't 2005 anymore.

He's 35...which means he'd fit right in with the Nationals.

Where's that "this guy got cut, should we take a look at him" or whatever it was, thread?

Somebody find it and I'll move this.

Does nobody ever view the WNFF Index sticky? :nono:

Actually doesn't look like there is a thread for 2011, but really I think just moving this to the out of town section is enough.  No need to bury it in a catch-all thread.

you know, when I saw the name Podsednik I was thinking OMG there have to be better guys available than him right now. But to be fair, I went looking around and there isn't a lot out there. At least not many names on the blogs I follow. So this isn't a horrible suggestion by any means. Trouble is, he hasnt played much CF lately. Probably because of his age.
I prefer to have Werth stay in RF and I want to see Nix every single day in LF until he plays his way out of the line up. He has earned the playing time(to my surprise).

I still think that when we get our 3B back and our 1B starts to produce, we can afford to have Bernadina in CF. I might be alone here as I have not yet learned which posters love and hate which guys...but I still think Bernadina can be a player. JMO and I've certainly been wrong many times.

I think being blocked by Corey Patterson says it all.
