- Harper's really bummed. He's blogging with Felipe's body language. But he's a pro and isn't letting it affect his play. The same savvy stats and pithy analysis are there as always. I recommend a discussion he framed about our long-term rebuilding strategy.
- NFA and the best group of commenters in the Natmosphere weigh in on Alberto Gonzalez.
- DC Sports Plus does some actual reporting with a pretty interesting interview with Chris Curran, our 2008 22th round draft pick. This is my post of the week.
- Stephanie at We've Got Heart doesn't like being dissed by the Rangers. I don't either. (And what exactly does that franchise have to be so self-satisfied about, anyway?)
- Nationals Enquirer continues to break the news with flair, edge, and a sense of humor. And photos.
- Mr. Irrelevant, contrary to his moniker, captures the zeitgeist perfectly.
- Hendo weighs in with a smart take on the Manny deal, expressing relief that we're not run by Ned Colletti but kinda wishing we could have pulled off a coup like what the Pirates' Neal Huntington did.
- William World News is starting to pick up again, presumably as his little one is starting to sleep better at night. I'm a particular fan of how he's beating the Fire Bowden drum.
- Kristin at We've Got Heart throws a bouquet to Jesus Flores for winning the MLB Players Alumni Association's Heart and Hustle Award. This got ignored by most of the MSM, and it shouldn't have been.
- SBF argues for Dukes in CF and Milledge in right. I'm not on board with that unless we've decided Milledge will never be a good CF, but it's a point that should be raised.
- Half Street Blues wants Manny to get mad more. I'm not on board with this either, but again I think it's a discussion that should be had.
- Nats Fanboy Looser sends a first-hand report from Columbus with observations on Dukes and E-Bone.
