Josh Smoker (Supplemental rd - 31st overall) and John McGeary (6th rd - 190th overall) have both arrived in Vermont and were in uniform in the dugout for the last half of Sunday's game.

Excellent.  You  need to report on their progress as it comes.

They can get a good 3-5 games in :)

Nice to see they arrived and will get a taste of pro ball before the Instructional League

Well McGeary's off to Stanford any day now, right?

Right.  He's only available for the Nats when not attending classes, is my understanding.  And classes must be starting pretty soon, right?

I bet the Stanford experiment doesn't last 2 years. He'll be in our farm system full-time by 2009.

If memory serves, Stanford starts very late because of the quarter system

They both pitched to live batters in the Lake Monsters pre game workout yesterday.  I believe the plan is for them to pitch in games beginning on Saturday (at home).  Rumor has it that Spin Williams (Nats Minor League Pitching Coordinator) will be in town for our final homestand. 

Stanford starts September 24th.  So - it looks like McGeary will miss out on instructional league which starts in mid September and ends October 14th.
