John Lannan was non-tendered last week, ending his Washington Nationals career. Unheralded coming out of Sienna College, Lannan needed about 2 years to go from an 11th round draft pick to a starting pitcher. His Nats debut proved to be one of the more memorable during those early years. Pitching in Philadelphia, Lannan hit too [...]

Arbitration run-down: everybody eligible except John Lannan and Michael Morse (Nationals Journal, The Post) have agreed to contracts. Payroll is up above $70 million. Neither of those guys needs to be locked-up long-term in my mind.
