Well I was gone for over a week, and it doesn’t look like there has been much news that I missed while I was away. I see that the Nats invited Chris Marrero to spring training. I’m glad to see him there, as we need more than Johnson and Young pushing each other in spring training. I heard Marrero is in better shape than he was last season, and rumors are that Johnson is looking out of shape. I hope those rumors are incorrect, because even with a strong spring training from Marrero, as of today a healthy Johnson is projected as the opening day starter. Props to the Nats for potentially getting Frank Howard back into an official role with the Washington franchise after all these years.
