Shawn Hill.....

It was a move so low-key that no one has even noticed it...  Shawn Hill was released by the Nationals two days ago.  He had only pitched in 2 games for the Nats in ST, starting 2 games and throwing up a scoreless frame each time.  2008 was supposed to be a breakout year for him but instead he posted an atrocious 5.83 ERA over 12 starts.  His 2007, although shortened by injury, was fairly decent.

Hill has seemed like an underachiever who can't seem to stay healthy.; sort of like a lowercase Mark Prior.  I'd like to get him out of Washington and see what he could do on a better team.  He's attracting no interest so far as a FA so he could certainly be had on a minor league deal.  Of course, the FOs and the fan base interest in SPs has seemingly waned what with Piniero's strong ST so far, but over 162 games, having a talented guy like Hill as 6th starter depth couldn't hurt.

The Nats released John Patterson last year in ST and he is seemingly out of Baseball.  Is Hill done too?  Or should he get another shot?
