Across the Natosphere

Ray "Burger" King signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros on Thursday. Earlier this season for the Nats, King pitched six and two-thirds innings with a 5.68 ERA, giving up nine hits and four walks, striking out one. It will be interesting to see if King has anything left in his sizable tank after the change of scenery.

WaPo's Nationals Notebook has some fluff on Luis Ayala and his durability and resilience. No comment from them on his "goodness".

WaTi's Notebook talks about Ryan Langerhans, his nice catch yesterday, and his perserverance making in back to the majors.

NFA is participating in a Mock Amateur Draft with a bunch of other minor league bloggers. The real thing is coming up next week. Interesting stuff for the uninitiated.

Kristen at We've Got Heart pines for Ryan Wagner and bemoans the sameness of a lot of these recent losses.

And Nats320 has an extensive piece about Chad Cordero and his philanthropy. SBF has a distinct writing style that takes some getting used to, but the story here is that Chad gives back--a lot.
