Morning Coffee and the Blog Roundup 11/19: Back in the Saddle Edition

Missed yesterday, obviously. Just could not make it with having a half-day of work and so much to do.

Lots going on on the Nationals front. Looks like the Nats have had discussions with Jorge De La Rosa and Carl Pavano. I’d love to have Pavano return, even if just for the whole Expos/career coming full circle thing. It’s also unlikely that Josh Willingham is going to get an extension, and I’m a little annoyed about that one. Josh is one of my favorite Nationals, and I’m not sure I see many more outfielders coming up through the system that would take his place. It’s also likely to piss Ryan Zimmerman off even more, as he already cannot be happy with losing Dunn. How do you make the cornerstone of the team question their commitment to win? Well, this is a good way to do it. I guess the good news is that Jesus Flores is finally healthy. Yay! I had hoped for such an event.

I’ll be damned if I understand the deal with trying to trade Justin Upton. What are the Diamondbacks thinking on this one? You have a 23-year-old future superstar who’s cost-controlled…why? It’s like the Mariners trading Ken Griffey Jr. in 1991. I don’t get it.

Anybody want a 1977 Bill Buckner? I scored it in the Million Card Giveaway and am looking to move it for any like player from the Expos from 76-79. I’m crimnos, if you’re looking.

Music Friday!

Okay, let’s see what other folks were talking about yesterday…

Have a great weekend all!
