• The Nationals lost two key members of the organization this week. Third-base coach Trent Jewett (’90) left to join Lloyd McClendon’s staff in Seattle, while Assistant GM and VP of Player Personnel Roy Clark joins the Dodgers’ front office. Both changes might affect the Senators as the open position on Matt Williams’ staff may cause a ripple effect which would be felt in Harrisburg and Clark was instrumental in the marked improvement in the Nats’ farm system.
