Welcome to Capitol Dugout!

Who's batting leadoff? Where can I tune them in on the radio? What's the pitching rotation going to look like? Is tonight's game on TV? Who are the hot prospects coming up through the minors?

Welcome to Capitol Dugout, your Web home for Washington Nationals news, analysis, and information. As Washington welcomes the Nats, Capitol Dugout will be the place for fans around the world to go to learn about their new team. Using the resources of the Scout.com network and the expertise of an array of reporters and analysts, we will bring you Nationals coverage from every angle.

Capitol Dugout will offer a wide variety of material to keep you up to date about the Nats. There will be Scout.com's Hot News reports about players, rosters, and scouting reports, Inside Slant reports, and original reports and analysis from our own staff of writers. Player and coach interviews, a Nats Blog, and many, many more features will be appearing over the coming weeks.

Of course, this is the Internet and you will want to have your say about who the fifth starter should be, who should be batting cleanup, the double switch that Frank Robinson pulled in the seventh inning, and what outrageous thing ESPN had to say about our team. For that there is the CapitolDugout.com Message Board. This will be the heart of the community, the water cooler where everyone can go to have their say on all things Nationals. Spirited debate will be welcome, but incivility is not. That part of Capitol Dugout has been active for several weeks now and already has nearly 2,000 posts and in excess of 125 members. Come on in and join in the fun!
