Orr, Langy cut

No, this isn't a Nationals blog -- see how I used pics of Langy and Pete Orr!™ from when they were still Braves? -- but I wanted to share the sad news that two of my favorite former Braves didn't make the 40-man for the '08 Nats.

From the AP, via

The Nationals also sent outfielder Ryan Langerhans, infielder Pete Orr and pitchers John Lannan and Chris Schroder to Triple-A Columbus as the team finalized the 25-man roster.

From Dave O'Brien, via the AJC:
Orr and Langerhans both cut from Nats’ camp roster, and Langy already cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A. Orr was a non-roster invitee who had a great spring, batting .390. But that’s the life of a non-roster guy. Rough.

Langerhans had a bad spring, hitting .226 with just one extra-base hit (double) and 13 K’s in 31 at-bats.

Best of luck, guys. :(
