Things You May Have Missed in the Natosphere

Bret Boone hangs 'em up. Valiant effort, but when it's time to go, it's time to go. This time it seems he knows it's time.

John Patterson released by Rangers. This link has a short note about it at the bottom. Bad news when you've been waived by two of the worst pitching teams in baseball. Maybe he wishes he would have had the surgery two years ago. He'd probably be back to his old self by now, instead of having to completely start over. What a shame.

Bill Ladson reports that Paul LoDuca felt "fine" after playing catch yesterday. I guess we'll have to wait and see what team management decides when the doctors clear him. It will be real tough to take Flores out of the line-up right now, as even GM JimBow admits in his rambling comments last week.

NFA reports that much-clamored for minor league outfielder Justin Maxwell has gone on the DL at Double-A Harrisburg. Many folks wanted Maxwell up with the Nats after Kearns' injury, but it will be a while before he's ready to play.
