Your Incorrect Factoid of the Day

Did you know: On May 18, the Nationals began a stretch off 34 consecutive games against American League teams. The Nationals were 15-16 against those teams entering Friday's action.

Other than the games against the Reds, Cardinals, Dodgers, Padres and Pirates, that's deadly accurate.

  • Slightly more accurate from the same notes column, the Nats outrighted Larry Broadway, Mike Hinckley and Frank Diaz, removing them from the 40-man roster.

  • Slightly more important from the same notes column, Shawn Hill is reporting more elbow problems. Not good. Jason Bergmann starts on Monday.

  • The A's traded Milton Bradley to the Royals for a reliever with a career 6.99 ERA. Gee, thanks Jim. Guess he didn't get the memo.


    • Bradley is still available. If the Nats can get someone to platoon with Alex Escobar on the DL.

    • Not good news about Hill's elbow. Can you send another memo to Jim and ask if they can just shut Hill down completely for the rest of '07?

    • The change is being made on the factoid.

    • I've noticed that factoids uses the game notes for those things quite a bit. When I've looked at them in the past, there've been a few errors. It happens.

      Lord knows I make plenty of 'em! ;)

    • I keep looking for some word on Speigner. Has any announcement been made about whether the Twins bought him back?

    • Think something's coming soon with Washington clearing space on the roster? Or were those just spaces that had to be cleared for the recent additions? (Ayala, Watson, Schroder(sp))

    • I see it now says "Non-National League East teams."

    • Well factoid general means a fact that isn't true (or verified, but in this case, obviously with the schedules available it was).

    • Speigner is waiting it out in the DC area, apparently. No movement as of Sat. night.
