Dusty Baker and Adam Lind were clear about what his role is likely to be in D.C., and its not part of a platoon with Jayson Werth or Ryan Zimmerman, its a bench role. Adam Lind had to wait until February 15th to find out where he would be playing this season, but given the wait and the late date of his signing, things worked out well for the 33-year-old, 11-year veteran, who inked...

Adam Lind needed a job and the Nationals gave him one. It happens to be a good fit.

WEST PALM BEACH – Baseball’s hot stove burns with the big names. They are sought-after commodities with their choice of employers. Speculation of their intentions fuels baseball’s dead months.
