Who's it gonna be? Yeah, you know.
Okay, Jimbo, now that it's perfectly clear that Adam Dunn doesn't want to come to Washington, and your cheapskate bosses don't want to overpay for Manny Ramirez for a season or two for some reason, and even Stan's favorite bargain basement option (Andruw Jones) is off the market, who is your 2009 consolation prize? Come on! Give it up! Bill Ladson at Nationals dot com hinted ever so subtly at it this morning; let's recap:
But don't underestimate general manager Jim Bowden. With so many quality free agents still on the market, Bowden could sign a left-handed hitter at a reasonable price. In 2006, the Nationals were able to sign infielder Ronnie Belliard during Spring Training.
So, next question(s): When is the Ken Griffey Jr. press conference, and who loses playing time until he goes down with a season ending injury in May?
