Sports Fix 2.0 on The Kevin Sheehan Show podcast. Me & @kevinsheehandc talk about Mason Foster & #Redskins coach Jay Gruden's strong leadership. Also #Nationals owner Mark Lerner should kick Scott Boras' ****. Plus my 25-credit semester at @univofscranton https://t.co/Z3HnFlCrpd
Dipoto wasn’t feeling well and was taken to hospital out of caution. Obviously he’d been upset not have made a deal at the meetings .... to that point
Yes. Jerry Dipoto finalized the trade for Encarnacion from his hospital bed with assistant GM Justin Hollander standing there. Hollander has a picture of it.
The Nationals head home from the Winter Meetings with a new vacancy to fill in their rotation after trading Tanner Roark, and with the door still wide open if Bryce Harper (and Anthony Rendon) want to talk long-term deals. https://t.co/Ck0M7kqNlC
Likewise, when @nsherry2 heard about the #WinterMeetingsAuction, she was eager to provide a special experience for an aspiring groundskeeper. Check it out at https://t.co/PxLhdloFcx… (deadline 10p ET, benefits @nlbmprez & @jrfoundation)
By the way, on Nats and LeMahieu: Sense from people familiar with their plans is he's going to cost more than they're willing to spend. Tons of cheaper options available, and they don't necessarily have a long-term need with Kieboom and Garcia in the system.
Scialabba said the Nats wanted to revamp minor league outfield depth after losing Daniel Johnson in the Gomes deal. Thought Taylor had made some big progress at the plate. So they took him.
In the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft, the Nationals took Chuck Taylor, an outfielder from the Mariners system.
