The Steve Watkins Fan Club

So, there's this guy....Steve Watkins...and SuperNova and I are looking at the Nats pre-season stats--which are awwwful with a capital AWE--and we both say "wow, look at S. Watkins!"

Of course, I then find out 5 seconds later that Steve Watkins has been reassigned to the minors today. But at least Steve, unlike pretty much every other minor leaguer given a chance in camp this spring training, served himself well. In 15 innings, Mr. Watkins registered a 1.20 ERA with only 10 hits and 5 walks given up against 18 strikeouts. Here's to you Mr. Watkins. While I'm not sure what more you needed to do to make THIS pitching staff given that we named a pitcher with a 10.50 ERA our #3 starter, I have a feeling we may be seeing you around in the future--hopefully still in a Nats uniform.

Based on the way this team is being run now, Watkins needs to run out of options.

Though, to be honest, I don't mind him being sent down. There is noone ahead of him in the bullpen that I don't think deserves a spot on this team. Ok, well other than Stanton, but Gryboski deserves his spot.
