Since coming off the DL DeRosa was hitting .241/.361/.379 for the season Izturis has hit .235/.248/.333.

Izturis will bring the Coryean power back to the Nats.

This is exactly the kind of move contenders have made many times.  And many times they work out just fine.   What do you expect in August?  Or even July?  We filled a need.  His offense isn't that far off some of our regulars.  He is a veteran.  With at least a little playoff experience, though not much.  There have been plenty cases where players with low performing years have come on and done fine on a contender in the last two months and post season.  Especially if the manager knows what role to put them in.  I think it is a good move.  And not much wasted if Desmond comes back strong.  Now, this is no guarentee it will work.  But it is certainly a move worth trying.  I think it makes more sense the the Suziki move.

DeRosa sucked every time he touched the field. Izturis is a good defender at the very least. DeRosa going to the DL is addition by subtraction. Anything, and I mean anything, that Izturis does positive is just extra.

Look, if DeRosa is hurt, then there is a need for a back up fast.  You even don't have to have a dislike for DeRosa's play to say this was a good move.  I'm glad the team is not going to play short if DeRosa is not capable of playing as a backup.

If we DFA him after Desmond gets back, it was a good move.

Agreed. I'm just glad DeRosa is gone.

Small tweak like dropping DeRosa and HRod and adding Suzuki will help this team down the stretch.
