Good Night and Good Luck, B-Wilk

Brad Wilkerson was sent to the Texas Rangers last night, along with Terrmel Sledge and a minor leaguer in exchange for Alfonso Soriano. You may remember Sledge from such appearances as “In which I’m invited to model the uniforms, only to have the event cancelled by Evil Commish Selig in a power play” and “Hey look, I ripped my hamstring clear of the bone!”, so that’s no giant loss, but it appears that Chevy Chase Bank is going to need a new spokesman for their baseball-themed ads. And, according to Chris Needham we now have nine second basemen:

Just for mierda and giggles, the comprehensive list of Nationals currently under the club’s control who could play second base next year: Jose Vidro, Alfonso Soriano, Jamey Carroll, Junior Spivey, Damian Jackson, Marlon Anderson, Bernie Castro [edit:Brendan Harris, too!], and Rick Short.

So, good news is that we’re deeper than the Marianis at that position. Hey Jimmy Bo, how are we doing, y’know, with pitching? Loaiza signed with the A’s. That’s one fewer starter…and none of ours are, say, terribly good… Whatcha got for us, Jimmy Bo? They say that Soriano’s going to play Left, but we already had about 6.02 x 10^23 outfielders, so what happens there? Church had a good run, but does this mean he’s sitting bench in favor of Marlon?

Too many questions, not enough answers.

    If we have a mole of outfielders does that mean we need to have it removed? Or are you suggesting we make guacamole out of that Avogadro?
