Surprise move by the Nationals. Marlon Byrd and Brandan Watson will split time in centerfield.
Bowden indicates that the move was made because Watson was simply better in spring.
If I were Church, I would be seething. I suspect he is.... certainly, there are a number of teams out there who would like him (Seattle, after the Reed injury, for one).
The irony is that Church got his shot after a strong spring, when the Nationals shocked Endy Chavez, optioning him to the minors last year.
