Here are some good wishes for Mike Daniel. Thanks for your career with us, and I am sorry we didn’t see you at least once in DC.

If baseball players were expected to be mature at 17, then no one would ever tout the value of a veteran influence in the clubhouse.

I believe they’re using mature in the sense that he shouldn’t be so cocky.

Everything I’ve read has pointed to Boras giving him a massive ego, that will only inflate with age.

Then either pro pitching will humble him a little or he’ll be totally right to be that cocky, right?

This is the team that could probably use Darnell MacDonald.

I’m glad the Nats have come to their senses. This posturing about whether they would take Harper or not is just silly. Get it over with already. Pay the man his $15-17m and get him started in a short season in your system.
