Nats in the News (on anyway)

One of my favorite baseball writers, Tim Kurkjian of, has a column today about the addition of Adam Dunn to the Nats lineup this summer.

Then, Rob Neyer quotes David Pinto quoting Barry Svrluga about the contributions of Rick Eckstein. Eckstein might be a great hitting coach. But at least he IS a hitting coach. He looks at film, breaks down mechanics, etc. He's not a miracle worker, or his brother would be an all-star.

But at least Eckstein is actively trying to help guys out, as opposed to convincing every-day players the best way to approach things is to swing at the first, best pitch, a la the best pinch-hitter in the history of the game.
