  • It's official...Nats interested in Sosa...and Clayton!

    http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/a...2005&fext=.jsp

    According to free agent shortstop Royce Clayton, his agent and Bowden have had preliminary discussions about possibly joining the Nationals.

    In fact, Clayton, 35, has already had a lengthy conversation with manager Frank Robinson early this week. Clayton said it was the best talk he has had with a manager in years, and Robinson, according to Clayton, has encouraged him to compete for the starting job with the Nationals.

    Washington already has a starting shortstop in Cristian Guzman, but he coming off the worst season of his career. Clayton said that he is willing to compete against Guzman, as he did with Ozzie Smith when both were with the Cardinals in 1996. Clayton ended up being the regular shortstop
    Last season, Clayton, a 15-year veteran, hit .270 with two home runs and 44 RBIs for the Diamondbacks.

    The Rockies would like to have Clayton return in a backup role, but he said he is not quite ready for that.

      He hit .324 in September when Frank actually threatened a seat on the bench. We just need to threaten him and he will produce.
      The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

      The A: No

      ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
      Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

        It's too bad FR realized to threaten him in September
