So, between Burnett and Bruney, the Nats saved almost enough to pay one minimum MLB salary. Given some of the people DC has in camp, this could turn out to be a “buy two, get one free” deal.

And I think there is a shot that Burnett especially, maybe Bruney will both have nice seasons for the Nats. Possibly hovering around a 3.90 ERA.

They should be able to have decent bullpen for a change. This should lead to quite a few more victories. .500 would be nice. Lets play ball….I like Zim, Dunn and the Hammer…with Morgan leading off….should be good to watch
