Greetings, Nats fans.
After 10 days off, a chance to learn a new publishing system, a few meetings and the requisite paperwork, I'm happy to inform you I'm back on the Nationals beat.
I'll be covering the Nationals this season for MASN, blogging here and appearing as a guest contributor to pre- and post-game shows once the season rolls around. We're still working on a snappier name for my blog (if you have ideas, post them in the comments section), but I'll be posting several times a day throughout the season.
I couldn't be more excited to be at MASN after two years at the Washington Times, which (as you probably know) dropped its sports section on Dec. 31. But over here, we'll have the chance to discuss the Nats in some new ways and hopefully keep up a lively exchange on baseball, both locally and around the majors. I'm on Twitter here--if you've followed me at all in the past, you know I'll post there frequently--and I'll conduct live web chats on a regular basis. This is a new medium for me, but it's one I think will encourage a greater two-way flow of information than anything I've done in the past. It should be a fun ride, and I hope you'll stick around for it.
Check back here frequently for new posts and other goings-on, or if you've got comments or questions about the team. And if you've got things you'd like to see us doing here, feel free to share them.
I'll be back with more later--for now, it's time to get back to putting together travel requests for spring training. I guess the paperwork isn't over quite yet. :-)
