Best Treehouse of Horror: The Shinning

On Sunday morning I saw an excellent walk of shame. Dude was walking back to my building at about 9:30 a.m. in something that looked like a burgundy leisure suit — but just pants and a vest, no shirt underneath.

O’s Find Soriano Is Seeking A Rich Free Agent PaydayThe Post
I am disappointed to hear that Balmer is overwhelmed by Alfonso Soriano‘s contract demands. I was hoping an opportunistic would sign Soriano to spite the Nationals and then get stuck with diminishing returns on a monster contract.

In other Nats news, Robert Fick and Jose Guillen filed for free agency (nationals.com). Both want to come back, but it seems unlikely that Fick will get the opportunity. I expect Guillen to be offered an incentive-laden deal; Jim Bowden probably figures that at the very least, he’ll have a potential baby-sitter for his kids. I’ll be interested to see if Guillen signs it, or if he is insulted by the offer and vows vengence against the Nationals and Bowden, should he able to play against them. The latter is much more entertaining than having him stewing on the bench because Austin Kearns is the real rightfielder now. It is much more entertaining than the former — Guillen playing right field. He blew it for himself (but saved the Nats from more Bowden stupidity) when he rejected a contract in spring training. I don’t think he adds anything that Kearns does not, other than potential locker room cancer.


Phil Wood: 1,000 reasons to honor East CapitolThe Wash. Examiner
Wood wants the 1,000th baseball game at RFK Stadium to be turned into a special occasion with players from the first game featuring the Senators and Tigers in attendance. Okay, sounds like fun.
