Nats relase Patterson

The Nationals released their right-hand would-be star pitcher, John Patterson, one of the last team players who used to wear an Expos uniform. This sad news is a real shame. Apparently, team co-owner Mark Lerner saw Patterson give up several runs against the Orioles last week and said enough's enough. See Well, I guess Patterson's had enough chances, but I was still hoping he might finally overcome his persistent arm problems and live up the the high hopes we had for him when the Nationals began playing nearly three years ago. Meanwhile, the Nationals have signed veteran lefty Odalis Perez to a one-year contact, and reassigned aging second baseman Bret Boone to the team's Triple-A affiliate in Columbus.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
