If It's Wednesday, This Must Be Paraguay

It's Svrluga Wednesday! Hopefully he's not jet-lagged today, and will be back on his A-game, after his lackluster performance last week.

Join in the fun at two!


  • I've already submitted a question about the nightmare that would be trading for Preston Wilson.

  • I've already submitted 10 questions each about Dayn Perry and Will Carroll.

  • I've only got two questions. I feel so inadequate.

  • I've got two in. Bring it on!

  • how did this St. Barry stuff start?

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 1:57 PM  

  • The nickname?

    I started calling him St. Barry of Svrluga.

    Part because he's good. And part because Svrluga sounds more like a place than a surname.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:00 PM  

  • Glad to see he started on time, unlike some people I could mention.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:01 PM  

  • And there's no way, shape or form that 12 pitchers makes sense. Let Armas and Vargas shadow each other. If you can't get 6-7 innings a night between them, then I don't know what to tell ya.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:02 PM  

  • 12 doesn't make sense only if you're not carrying dead weight like Blanco.

    Cheltenham, Md.: Any chance of Clemens going to the O's later this year if they still look to be in the chase?

    Barry Svrluga: Let me think about that.


    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:06 PM  

  • He is St. Barry because he has an edge to him

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:06 PM  

  • some in the organization don't think Carroll can play the position on an every-day basis.

    I guess Ryan's and OMGs! beatdown of him caused him to go back on his remark ;)

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:08 PM  

  • I'd like to see Carroll in a groundball pitcher/flyball pitcher platoon with Vidro, actually.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:09 PM  

  • guess Ryan's and OMGs! beatdown of him caused him

    Silly rabbit. He's only heard of Ballwonk and Natfanatics. If you want knowledge of the blogs, you call on Fahrenthold, right? :-)

  • Don't worry, D. We obviously don't have much either!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:12 PM  

  • I say let Carroll play while Guzman is out. It can't hoit. Maybe he's actually good. Sometimes I don't think we get a chance to see who's good.

  • There's a BPG poster for sure.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:14 PM  

  • From another site:
    The Washington Post is also going all-out on the Nats, although vigilant Baltimore fans have kept the paper from cutting Orioles coverage too much.

    "Some people seem to be obsessed with that question," said Barry Svrluga, the Post's Nationals beat writer. "In some ways I think it's bumped the Orioles coverage up."

    Two sportswriter positions at the Post that had been left unfilled due to a hiring freeze were "unfrozen" to accommodate the additional reporting demands of a new team, Garcia-Ruiz said.

    Take THAT BPG Weenies!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:15 PM  

  • Ah, complaining about WTEM. I guess folks got tired of complaining about the Post coverage of the O's, so they've picked another media outlet.

    Although I agree with everything they say.

  • WTEM is teh stoopid!!!111!!!

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:17 PM  

  • Barry's covering his tracks in the Guillen answer so as to not inflame Ryan.

  • am I the only one who doesn't really like the DC hat? I don't mind the DC logo, but the entire cap design is minor league.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:18 PM  

  • Now complaining about ballcap avalability...I'm learning SO much about the team in this chat!

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:18 PM  

  • What kind of fucking question is that hat one? That is a BPG guy

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:18 PM  

  • i definitely prefer the script W - classic

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 2:19 PM  

  • And yeah--I'm not that thrilled with the DC hat, either. May eventually get it, but not 'til after I get the road hat.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:19 PM  

  • I'm a block W guy, but I'll even take our current Walgreen's monstrosity over the DC.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:20 PM  

  • Think of the mothers, Angelos! Think of the mothers!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:20 PM  

  • My wife wants to get the DC hat, but she was a former Howard Dean volunteer, so he distaste for red, script Ws I can somewhat tolerate. She's also going to send one to my brother in law in SF.

    By Blogger D, at 5/11/2005 2:20 PM  

  • but St. Claire is probably the most respected member of the Nationals' coaching staff from the outside.

    Is this a compliment?

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:21 PM  

  • at least it's a Nats-related question that matters

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:21 PM  

  • i concur - can we talk baseball instead of merchandise and concessions?! It pisses me off to no end the people who complain about the lack of beer selection or no sushi at the ballpark. There's a ballgame going on, people!!!!!!! Who cares?!

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 2:21 PM  

  • Now another complaint about the O's TV coverage!!! I thought this chat was about NATIONALS baseball. Thus far it's beeen about the O's (Roger Clemens? Please--who's on crack here?), local media that aren't the Post, hat availability and now O's television access in North Carolina. Who the hell is choosing these questions for Barry anyway?

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:21 PM  

  • (whispers) I love the DC hat.

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:21 PM  

  • Brian on the pole?

    Good job with the coding!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:25 PM  

  • Hm. That is true--Soriano would give us the leadoff man we've been looking for.

    But I'm still mad at him from the 2003 Series. My mother could strike him out by pitching shit low and outside. He swings at everything down there--I was ready to buy him golf clubs!

    Or maybe a gently used hockey stick.

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:27 PM  

  • Soriano's even less of an ideal leadoff man than Wilkerson. He has speed, but less discipline and less OBP. He's a run-driver-inner. Not a run-setter-upper.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:28 PM  

  • Wow--a half-hour in before Comcast/MASN was mentioned. A new record.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:29 PM  

  • 1. I like the DC hat myself.

    2. Alfonso Soriano is a leadoff hitter like I'm a world-class ballerina.

    3. If this team signs Billy Wagner I'm going to be seriously fucking pissed off.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:29 PM  

  • All hockey sticks are gently used these days.

    By Blogger D, at 5/11/2005 2:29 PM  

  • Agreed on Wagner. He's an older closer with arm problems. And he's not worth the 8-10MM a year he's going to cost. For that price you can get a real shortstop! :)

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:30 PM  

  • Billy Wagner is at the end of the road ... if you are going to go after a closer, go after one in their prime (not that I agree they have to)

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:31 PM  

  • NJ for the game? I can see it. Derek Lee has to cool off first though, bc Helton and Pujols are locks.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:31 PM  

  • If John Astin makes the All-Star game, the 'stache has to go

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:31 PM  

  • Give him a break, he was in The City, felt like the 'stache would help him fit in.

    By Blogger D, at 5/11/2005 2:32 PM  

  • He might make the bad facial hair all-stars.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:32 PM  

  • Shouldn't we give Cordero a little time? It seems to me that we could use other help sooner than we need to address the closer position.

    Cordero is adequate at the very least (probably much moreso IMO).

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:32 PM  

  • If Astin keeps the 'stache, maybe a fan club with appropriate cheesy fake moustaches will appear (a la the Wolf Pack in Philly)

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:33 PM  

  • Alfonso Soriano is a leadoff hitter like I'm a world-class ballerina

    Hey! I knew you looked familiar!

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:34 PM  

  • Cordero's adequate (moreso, probably), but I wouldn't complain about having two shut-down relievers, as long as neither one is named Billy Wagner.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:34 PM  

  • Cordero does two things well:

    Beat the hell out of left-handed pitching, and;

    Beat the hell out of women in his life.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:34 PM  

  • wrong Cordero Chris

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:34 PM  

  • Wrong Cordero there, Adams.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:35 PM  

  • MattNats, I agree. I don't get the need for a stud closer.

    Now, dependable, multi-inning middle relievers, I can see. Especially if they are young and cheap and . . . eh, nevermind.

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:35 PM  

  • Screw you all!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:36 PM  

  • and rhyme with Chuckles?

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 2:36 PM  

  • Sorry, Cordero comment was meant to contribute to the closer discussion (a la Wagner). But I didn't make that clear.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:36 PM  

  • I'm actually pretty happy with our pen, now that we've subtracted Horgan and Osuna.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:36 PM  

  • Yeah, the pen has been pretty damned good. And as long as they refuse to start El Gigante, it's pretty damn deep.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:37 PM  

  • You were clear, it's just that Chris has this Bud White LA Confidential thing going on.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:37 PM  

  • You mean you're pleased that we don't have guys with 42 ERAs and .514 BAs against????!!!!!! ;-)

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:38 PM  

  • "It's your world...we be the squirrels"? What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:38 PM

    By Blogger D, at 5/11/2005 2:39 PM

  • harvest your nuts!

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 2:40 PM  

  • Left-handed pitchers--now THAT'S something to trade for.


    We don't have any.

    Please, for the love of God, no more outfielders! Not now, anyway. Just play Church in center, Wilk in left, Guillen in right and be done with it.

    Am I the only one who thinks this?

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:41 PM  

  • From "Everybody Dance Now" by C+C Music Factory, I think...

    "It's your world,
    and I'm just a squirrel
    trying to get a nut
    to move your butt
    c'mon let's dance
    everybody over here
    everybody over there."

    I think, if I remember. Of course, I could be real off on that one.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 2:42 PM  

  • Mattnats: Yes, I agree. I'll note, though, that the evidence is rather inconclusive that a team actually NEEDS a LH reliever, if only for the sake of it.

    Now, if there's a good one that available, sure.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:44 PM  

  • A quality reliever, of course! Otherwise, we could go with Horgan.

    And who'd wanna do a damn fool thing like that?

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:44 PM  

  • He even avoided back problems on the Bill Bray question. Way to keep up with the team, Barry! :P

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:45 PM

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 2:46 PM  

  • Hinckley sure as hell isn't at Harrisburg, I'll tell you that much.

    Sure, MattNats, but there's a lot of distance between "Horgan'05" and "quality lefty," IMHO, and many teams do stock one or even two lefties just because those guys are lefty and can get guys out occasionally. It's a waste, or at least it might be.

    By Blogger Basil, at 5/11/2005 2:47 PM

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 2:50 PM  

  • Getting sick of the BPG board myself. Seems like the same old stuff every day. I used to peruse every thread, but now it's just more prattle about the TV deal, DC vs. VA as a baseball site (why?) and whining about various things that are only tangentially related to the actual play of the Washington Nationals.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 2:50 PM

    And right now, we don't.

    Of course, we don't have a starting second baseman, or shortstop (not that we ever did), or...

  • Pena has some legal issue, too, doesn't he?

  • I HATE it when people start clamoring for prospects for the sake of prospects....

    Just like that godawful nugget about Desmond I read this morning.

    I submitted a Frank question similar to the one he took, but was more specific. I wish he had taken mine instead-- it would've forced a different kind of answer.

  • MattNats was at the chatter last night (before I wussed out---and yes, I saw the comments!), right?

  • I was listening to KC pre-game at lunch (yes I am a loser), Baird said Pena has some "personal" issues.

  • Why was Armas' pitch limit at 110 in the first place? He wasn't going that deep into games in the minors. And the guys a constant rehab case!?!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 3:00 PM  

  • Bah - he didn't really answer my question. Yeah, there are a lot of potential starters, but Rauch is at least the fifth-best one, right?

  • I was in Yuda last night for a brief while, until my batteries ran low, which reminded me that it was probably bedtime anyway.

    I can't make it tonight, but rest assured you haven't heard the last of me.

  • Rumor is Pena had his own Missouri version of Desparate Housewives going on.

  • Disappointing answer for the ol' fellow from Bayern

  • and thus concludes another hour of wasted productivity for YOUR federal government

  • You can't leave us! I've got questions still, damnit!

  • Bah - St. barry's losing his touch

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 3:02 PM  

  • Much better than last week, I must say.

    By Blogger Ryan, at 5/11/2005 3:02 PM  

  • Don't forget the private sector!

  • I must admit to finding the monicker "Wily Mo" questionable anyway. I'm kind of glad I don't have to yell it during games.

    Sorta begs the reply, "Yeah, I got your Wily Mo..."

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 3:02 PM  

  • it was better than last week, true. maybe i just get so let down when he leaves

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 3:03 PM  

  • Wily Mo works much better if you think of him in terms of the cartoon Coyote.

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 3:03 PM  

  • I won't be around tonight either. I think once I get home this evening I'm going to lie down and not get back up for about 14 hours.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 3:04 PM  

  • Yep, another hour of wasted productivity. One of these days I'm going to have to actually work.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 3:04 PM  

  • rocket ... did he leave you at your "peak"? ;)

    By Blogger Brian, at 5/11/2005 3:04 PM  

  • Rocket, take solace in the fact that he's doing it for us. So that we can read 500 words of good copy. Plus a notebook!

    By Blogger Chris Needham, at 5/11/2005 3:04 PM  


    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 3:04 PM  

  • But if you say "Wily Pena" really fast, you could get slapped if it's taken out of context.

    By Blogger MattNats, at 5/11/2005 3:05 PM  

  • funny, it was hard to find a good rocket picture that didn't look sexual

    By Blogger Rocket1124, at 5/11/2005 3:06 PM  

  • I see you gave up on that quest and just went with what was on hand.

    By Blogger Yuda, at 5/11/2005 3:07 PM  

  • damn you, disgusting mental picture
