Nationals Clean House Once Again
Seems like the Washington Nationals are cleaning all the veterans off the team, shown even more with today's transactions. Washington outrighted both Alex Escobar and Micah Bowie to the minor leagues. Both are most likely going to become free-agents and move on. Escobar missed the entire 2007 season with a variety of injuries, but can still serve as a decent 4th outfielder for any club willing to take a gamble. Bowie, who also missed time with an aggravated hip, compiled a 4.55 ERA in 30 appearances this season. He is also a lefty, so i'm sure if he decides to be a free-agent there will be some looks.
