The article presents information related to the baseball team Washington Nationals. General manager Jim Bowden improved the team's bench by signing Marion Anderson, Robert Pick, Damian Jackson, Matthew LeCroy and Michael Tucker. The team was unsuccessful in its efforts to upgrade the rotation by signing A.J. Burnett or Kevin Millwood, so Bowden added Ramon Ortiz, a free agent and re-signed Tony Armas.
