Nationals interested in Crow

Nationals acting general manager Mike Rizzo acknowledged on Friday that he had talks recently with advisors Randy and Alan Hendricks about the possibility of selecting their client, right-hander Aaron Crow, in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.

Washington drafted Crow last year, but both parties couldn’t reach an agreement by the midnight ET deadline on Aug. 15.  

This time, Crow must sign a re-consent form to allow the Nationals to select him on June 9.

The Nationals have been scouting Crow for several weeks. He is now pitching for the Fort Worth Cats of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.

By not signing Crow last year, the Nationals will get the No. 10 pick in this year’s Draft as compensation.

Agree that we should try to obtain consent of Crowe to draft him…to go along w/Strasburg in the very first pick of the 1st rd….as we can never have more than enough Pitching…Let’s get him if the opportunity arises; and show one and all the credibility of owners/management that the franchise’s serious about winning…and attracting fans to increase attendance at home….This Draft is very important for the future of the franchise!!
