Brandon Watson Off to NOLA, Ryan Chruch Back

The Brandon Watson experiment has come to an end in Washington. Watson has been sent to New Orleans to make way for the return of Ryan Church, who impressed last year by hitting .287 with nine homers in 268 AB. Watson, who had been tried in the leadoff spot following a strong spring, failed to reach base with regularity and lost his spot despite the fact that Church was hitting only a buck thirty in the Crescent City. The Nats are 2-8, the worst record in MLB.
