And Then There Were 52

In their never-ending attempt to trim the roster down to manageable levels, the Nationals cut four more players today (why not more?) and are now carrying 52 stiffs. Well, ok, to be fair, 8 or 9 of them aren't stiffs.

Jermaine "President" Van Buren and Brett "Soupy" Campbell were optioned to Columbus.

Darnell "Old Farmer" McDonald and Chris Michalak were sent to the minor league camp, where the latter is charged with learning how to pronounce his last name.

Throw in the 3 sure-to-be DLd cases, and we've only gotta trim 24 more!
