"It's not something I'm excited about, but I did all I could do while I was here. I will go back down there and keep playing."
(Brandon Watson, via Nationals dot com, 6/27/2007)
Fick's back, Nook stays, Watson goes down: It doesn't add up.
Yeah yeah yeah, Watson had an option left and Logan was out of options, but what was the worst possible outcome of putting Nook Logan on waivers? Somebody picks up Nook from the waiver wire!? Really!?
If 2007 is all about "throw it up against the wall and see what sticks", then for the love of Jesus Colome could they just throw Brandon Watson up against the proverbial wall? Leave him out there for a few weeks? Most likely he won't stick, but we already know that Nook won't either. (Hmmm...maybe it is all about Alex Escobar...)
