Go wild folks. But if you’re enjoying dinner, not so much so that you miss the plate. Rick Ankiel will be back with the Nats tomorrow, as the team plans to activate him from the disabled list. This is good news for everyone except one member of the Nationals’ roster, the person to be sent down for Ankiel.
Nobody really stands out as an obvious choice for a demotion. But let’s be real, there’s no way we can pass up having Ankiel on this team. He was a shiny for god’s sake.
The current Nats roster will remain intact until after tonight’s game vs. the Reds. Perhaps the game will devolve into a competition between Bernadina, Carroll, Nady and Tracy as to who should remain on the team. Maybe we should replace the President’s Race with these four players, only instead of it being all about finding a new way to make Teddy lose badly, it will be four men desperately fighting for their own livelihoods.
