"Patterson and Sain and pray for rain."
(Jim Bowden, via Nationals Enquirer, 1/10/2007)
Nats closing in on another stiff for the '07 rotation:
According to multiple sources outside of the organization, the Nationals have offered three-time All-Star Johnny Sain (who died at 89 in November) a Minor League contract (terms reportedly similar to deal offered to Tony Armas Jr.)
