Ace Washington Post reporter Barry Svrluga suggests in today's paper what everyone knew forever: Matt Chico is going to be the #4 starter for the Washington Nationals this year, "if things continue to develop the way they are," says manager Manny Acta. Currently slotted into the #4 spot behind John Patterson, Shawn Hill, and Jason Simontacchi, Chico will have to fight off the likes of Jason Bergmann, Levale Speigner, Joel Hanrahan, Tim Redding, and Jerome Williams. I think that's doable. One time, I had a severe case of Levale Speigner after not showering for four days, but penicillin cured that right up! Needless to say, his job appears safe.
Upon hearing this news, the idea for a Matt Chico blog arose. The Matt Chico-sphere is relatively barren, but not anymore!
