(via Mr. Irrelevant)
This is great to see. There has been plenty of talk about how good Espinosa can be, and if this is what is to come, then the Nats finally have a second baseman. No more Adam Kennedy! Ronnie Belliard! The list goes on and on. The Nats have not had a legitimate second baseman since they got to D.C., when a washed up Jose Vidro had the honor.
If Desmond can sure up his fielding (which we assume he will), an effective double play combination may be here to stay.
If not, maybe the Nats could consider moving Desmond to second and Espinosa to shortstop, to make throws a little easier for Ian.
