2020 Washington Nationals Thread ***WORLD SERIES CHAMPION***

More frustrating that guys were swinging at pitch 1 from Arrieta knowing he's struggled. That should have be scouted better. Make him throw a ton more earlier.

can't pitch him all 162

 

I hope he doesn't pitch a single inning against the O's

 

This is what we're up against

Yeah, that 5 pitch inning (4th?) was seriously frustrating to watch.  1st pitch hacking really cost us today.

I'll take 2/3 on the road everytime. Time to farm the Orioles and then get Scherzer back lined up for a big series in Atlanta.

I think it was the 8th inning where we had Kendrick on 3rd with 1 out and Eaton hit a dribbler back to the pitcher that got Kendrick out at home....it's situations like that we need to capitalize on. We had them on the ropes...their fans were booing the **** out of them....it was lining up to be another lovely day :(

Yeah, that was bad execution, but the reliever they brought in had a .128 BAA vs. lefties. Or something like that.

The Detroit Tigers selected the contract of right-handed reliever Trevor Rosenthal on Monday despite his struggles at Triple-A since signing with the team following his release by the Washington Nationals.

 

He had a 10.13 ERA in six appearances for Triple-A Toledo since signing a minor league contract with the Tigers, allowing eight hits (two homers) and six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings pitched. He struck out nine and walked six.

One of my FB friends who's a Philly fan just posted this huge rant eviscerating the team. Its hilarious and basically symbolizes all of Philadelphia right now I'd imagine.

Gotta sting a little more knowing he turned down that contract from the dodgers

And the Nats. Phillies will have to buy their way into contention b/c they cannot develop their own.

I still don't get why he turned down the Dodger deal. IIRC it was similar if not more money per year and he got to play in the West Coast, closer to home and in a much better/friendlier city. Yeah its not 13 years guaranteed, but in 3 years he'll still very much be in his prime and can hit FA again.

 

As I predicted before, Harps will be traded before that contract is even half up.

So he could say he signed the biggest deal ever.  For 2 weeks or however long that was true.

Here is my dream lineup for tonight. I call it "More Rest Before Atl"

 

1. CF Eaton

2. LF Parra

3. 1B Adams

4. 3B Kendrick (That's right)

5. 2B Dozier

6. DH Zimmerman

7. RF. Robles

8. SS. Sanchez

9. C. Kieboom

 

 Then full normal starters tomorrow with Zimm DH'ing again.

Say he signed the 3 yr $100m with the Dodgers and put together a few years like he's having now... what's he worth after that?

That's a bold lineup, especially defensively playing without a SS.  Hopefully Davey doesn't go through with your lineup.

I'd go with:

 

1.  Robles - CF

2.  Dozier - 2B

3.  Zimmerman - Power Forward

4.  Matt Adams - Outside linebacker

5.  Sean Doolittle - Driving the bullpen cart around the outfield

F.   Davey Martinez - Short outfield like in beer league softball

7.  Left empty as disrespect to the Orioles

Ocho. Scherzer's baby - P
