In his post reporting that Milton Bradley will not be spending any time on the Nationals' DL in 2009, Ladson has this:
With Bradley out of the picture, don't look for Washington to acquire Andruw Jones or Mark Kotsay. According to baseball sources, the Nationals have decided to let Elijah Dukes and Lastings Milledge compete for the center-field job.So knowing that we have Willingham slated to play left, should we infer from this statement that Austin Kearns is ahead of Milledge and Dukes on the depth chart, leaving two of the more talented young players in the organization to fight for playing time in center? Just wondering...
PS Damn! No Andruw Jones or Mark Kotsay.
PPS When are we going to dump Wily Mo Pena? Isn't it just a matter of time at this point?
