You guys hit the nail right on the head. This series is must-Tivo material. Jose Guillen is getting thrown at, hopefully by Bartolo Colon, and he is going to charge the mound and maybe the dugout and go 1 on 26. What a beast Guillen is, I'm so glad he's on my fantasy team. He's great for team chemistry ;-D

Guillen great for team chemistry??? Wow, first time I've heard that one. I think it's great that he's fitting in with his Nationals teammates so far...but his team player rep previously has been about as bad as it gets. The guy's basically been run out of three organizations.

I was referring to my fantasy team's chemistry ;-D

He fits in well with such clubhouse dynamos as Manny Ramirez, Francisco Cordero, and the legendary Gary Sheffield.

I've heard plenty of people here in DC talk about how Guillen is fitting in, growing up, becoming a leader, etc. I translate this to mean that, for whatever reason, he's becoming less insane.

I just offered a trade of Mike Cameron for Milton Bradley purely to improve the chemistry of my team. And yes, I would be receiving Milton Bradley ;-D

Now if only I could get Albert Belle to complete my outfield... :-?

SS
3B - George Brett
OF - Milton Bradley
OF - Jose Guillen
OF - Albert Belle

SP - Clemens
SP - Zambrano
SP - Chan Ho Park

Maybe you guys could help me out...

Frank Francisco and Rob Dibble at RP. Lou Pinella at 1B. Pedro and Randy Johnson as the other SP's. I'm drawing a blank on SS's.

WILD THING! Mitch Williams. A guy who didn't look at the plate when he threw, wow. I named this crazy bird I had after him.

With this being an interleague affair, there's only one way I can see that F Robby knew something was up with Donnelly. Someone tipped him off.

Now, let's see...what Nationals player might have a little bit of a grudge against the Angels and would know about Donnelly perhaps loading up his glove? Uh, how 'bout one Jose Guillen, the former Halo whose tenure with the team ended rather badly last season. Pretty obvious he was the informer, particularly when some of the Angels pitchers starting yapping at him during the on-field 50 player plus coaches convention.

Guillen then lost his cool and had to be restrained. No question in my mind he's the "guilty party" here...although with this having taken place in SoCal, there's little doubt he would win an acquittal in any court of law.


I hope you're not insinuating Guillen is the one at fault for the situation. Sure he lost his cool when confronted by a number of Angels, but Donnelly was the one cheating. Donnelly's Angels teammates were the ones that came onto the field and basically confronted Guillen for "outing" their teammate for cheating. Of course, Guillen shouldn't go ballistic, but he has every right to inform his manager if he knows an opposing player is cheating, thus hurting his own team's chances of winning. Donnelly is the one at fault here, not Guillen.
