By The Way...

One more thought about the Nats negotiating with Guzman: If JimBow gives Guz a Meathook deal (2 years at $5MM per), he should be strung up.

FYI, Rumors floating around that the Nats and O's are talking about FLop. I guess Manny didn't like the fake dreads. From Chico's off-day Chemistry Lesson today:

Second baseman Felipe López thought a sight gag might help. So, during warmup drills in Minnesota last Thursday, López wore a Rastafarian-style wig. As he loosened up, his fake dreadlocks bounced under the brim of his ballcap. Like that, the poorest team in the National League prepared to lose its third straight game. Nobody expressed displeasure to López about the antics, but still, the second baseman felt a vibe of disapproval. "I'm sure people were like, 'We're losing. What is he doing?' But what does it matter if you're losing? You can't have fun? You're supposed to be bitter and not have fun?"

He dropped his voice to a conspiratorial whisper. "There's a lot of uptight people in here," he said.
