Shawn Hill’s Turn to Shine

Anticipation has built for quite some time, but now, the day of reckoning comes. Favored reader April’s relative, Shawn Hill will make his season debut against the vaunted Marlins team. The reeling Nationals, losers of their last 8 of 10 games, desperately need a shot in the arm. Hopefully Hill will deliver.

My suggestion is that he avoid having any balls go towards left field and Wily Mo ” Stone Hands” Pena.

Good luck Shawn!

Good News April!

John Patterson has been released by the Nationals!

Now the Nationals have a stellar starting rotation with Shawn Hill (97 IP) , Jason Bergmann (115 IP), Tim Redding (84 IP), Odalis Perez (137 IP, 5.37 ERA) and either Matt Chico (167, 4.63 ERA) or John Lannan (34 IP). Wow. Last year the Nationals surprised everyone by not being the absolute worst team in baseball. Looks like this year that might not be the case.

Not to Keep Piling On But…

The Nationals expect that Shawn Hill, who was likely going to be the #1 starter for the Nats (Ugh,) is not going to break camp with the team. I like GM Jim Bowden’s approach here, generally mediocre pitcher, combined with arm surgeries just this past November, sounds like an ace to me!

“My little fastball goes just 85/I had three surgeries now I can’t vie”
