C Jesús Flores is still feeling the effects of his Sept. 2 home plate collision with Philadelphia's Chase Utley, which resulted in a left ankle sprain. And Flores is feeling it not just because of the lingering soreness. He's also getting antsy. Yesterday, he tried jogging. He spoke to Manager Manny Acta, begging to take batting practice. That hasn't happened yet. Flores's slow progress has led Acta to believe that he'll be available for the last week of the season, no sooner. "I want to play," Flores said. "I want to finish my season."

" I don't need to see anything from him. I think we made it pretty clear that unless we get Johnny Bench back in [his] mid-20s, he is going to be our catcher."

Acta, asked if seeing Flores again this year will help the evaluation of Washington's young catcher
