Holiday Carroll

It's just like the Soriano trade announcement, except this actually is good news. The Nats brain trust offered arbitration to Jamey Carroll. The one-year contract will probably be in the $600,000 range. Here's hoping Jamey signs it. If nothing else it will keep him from having to move, seeing as how he's the only National with a home in the DC area.

Arbitration was also offered to Luis "El Guapo" Ayala, Marlon Byrd, Nick Johnson and Brian Schneider. Junior Spivey, T.J. Tucker and Alex "Killing Pablo" Escobar were not offered contracts, though Tucker has already signed a minor league deal and Escobar might.

I'll have more to say later, but tonight is "Big Monkey Movie" night for the Triple Play family of products and services, so I have to go summon the state of zen that will allow me to ignore Jack Black for 3 hours. You want in depth analysis, go read someone else's Nats blog. It ain't like there's a shortage.
