Close Call

Contact email for any questions or comments you have: closecallbaseball@gmail.com Close Call is an all-in-one Nationals site featuring in-depth analysis of the transactions, scores, and news of our hometown heroes. It features daily updates and commentary of signings, trades, minor league call-ups, and other player contract news year-round, as well as a description of each Nats game during the regular season and (we hope!) the postseason. Most of my stats and info come from MLBTradeRumors.com, ESPN.com, Nationals.com, and MLB.com. Unless I say so, none of the photos or videos I post belong to me, and I am not breaking any of the news.

Pudge to be Nationals’ Opening Day catcher
It’s no surprise that Jim Riggleman has named 39-year-old future Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez to be the Nationals’ Opening Day starting catcher. Many expect Pudge to start out the season starting behind the plate with Wilson Ramos backing him up, and to be used midseason as a trade token in order to get Jesus Flores some playing time as well.
