    Sounds like the Dodgers are clearing payroll for a run at Harper too.

    Cutch has a .996 OPS against the Nationals. He is a killer of Freeman proportions.

    Not to get into a political discussion, but it's one of my go-to's, and I think she's the new Sarah Palin.

    MadBum would be a great get. But I am curious about his health is a question mark and Luis Garcia is quickly approaching Soto/Kieboom/Robles territory. BA said this about him: a 70/60 hit/power combo would be Rendon. .300 hitter with 25ish homers, from a shortstop.

    All things Sports Talk Radio - DMV (met)

    More fun from the Flag**** station: I caught some of their interview with a reporter (it was the tail-end) talking about what Mark Lerner said, Grant chimes in proudly and REALLY awkwardly: "Yeah, yeah we know him a little bit too!" It was so desperate sounding, like the fat nerd who was allowed to sit at the cool-kids table in HS. EB on the Junkies this morning, talking about bits: "Bits are usually saved for late Summer when nothing is going on." Nothing, EB? At all? Can't think of one thing? Their complete disregard for the Nationals is so annoying.

    Yeah, it doesn't make much sense. He had an up and down year last year--he was either really good or absolutely horrible. Unless we can get someone that will give use 180-200 IP of a 3 WAR pitcher, than we need to hold onto him. However, he could be in serious decline too. He's way over-achieved anything we could have hoped for when we dealt Cristian Guzman for him back in 2010. I think this is who he is going to be--a hittable, back-end guy.

    How did we miss this all year?

    This is the way I feel too. I love, love, love watching Harper hit, gun people down at the plate, and his epic batflips. My wallpaper on my phone is his pose after his Derby-winning Homer. It'll be hard to see him in another uniform--and absolutely soul-crushing if it's the Phillies and all of those garbage fans come out of the woodwork. But, I've always said you make these decisions with the head, and not the heart. Does it make the most sense to give him 12 for 450? In a myopic view, sure. But what's the opportunity cost? Rendon? Turner? Strasburg has an opt out after this year. If he has a great year, he's gone. What FAs do we miss out on in 2, 3, 4 years? Next year's FA class is insane also. I'll miss him, but it might make the most baseball sense.

    Compare Harper and Soto's rookie years.

    Stop gaps. Kieboom the Greater is the long term solution there. Kendrick's Achilles and defense, and Difo's lack of offense are big holes. Now, if Difo had Kendrick's bat? That would be terrific

    He will this year. He also started at 2B in the AFL.
