Soto’s swing is a thing of beauty.  Shades of Ken Griffey Jr.  Just a damn natural 🤘

Good news/bad news on the Nats game in Tampa against the Yankees. 

 

Good news:  Joe Ross started, pitched 2 innings and retired all six Yankees he faced (all major leaguers).  He threw first pitch strikes to 5 of the 6 batters. His fastball was in the 93-94 mph range.

 

Bad news: Things fell apart after Ross left with a 2-0 lead.  Carter Keiboom was charged with another error, airmailing a throw over first after charging a chopper to third. And, per Mark Zuckerman, Victor Robles was wincing and favoring his left side after a throw of his sailed over third base. Mercifully, rain halted the game in the 5th with the Yankees leading 8-2.

 

But good news on Joe Ross.

I don't think Fedde has a shot at the rotation. It'll be Voth or Ross.

 

And we need that Big Vic Energy. He';s 22. He'll rebound.

was really hoping Kieboom got off to a good start defensively. he knows he has to defend to stay up here, each one probably stays in his mind longer than they should.

Eaton is on fire so far batting leadoff. 3 runs and nothing is getting past him.

Any update on Robles?


He said he’s fine. Just felt a little cramp after the throw but nothing that lasted.

Feel like Stras could win a Cy Young this year. Gonna be the start of the 2nd half of what will be a HOF career.

That change up was to the #1 overall prospect in baseball, Wander Franco. In 667 AB in the Minors, he's K'd just 54 times. He looked utterly helpless on that pitch.

Kieboom with another E. Ball was well hit, but right at him. Over his glove and through his legs. 

 

Soto robbed of a 2 run HR by the wind blowing in from left. Zim robbed too I thought back in the first inning.

i really really hope i'm wrong about that guy


I’m getting the same feeling. Might be best for him to spend at least another year in the minors. Call him up in Sept to give him another taste without the pressure. Don’t see him making the team at this rate. Which means we’ve got a hole in the infield.

It's not even March yet. Keep playing him at 3B to make these mistakes now. If he's still doing this in 2 weeks, then starting the season in AAA isn't the worst idea.
