Well what's yours? Who should they add that will improve the team?

I'd actually disagree a bit, due to age

Ah, ok.

Didn't they just pick him up on waivers, so they gave up nothing?

Right, he was an OBP, low power guy that year

Desmond has had a tendency to make errors early in the year and then settle down

But that's just it, Span doesn't get chances to get RBIs, so the stat is pretty meaningless for him

Well, if Werth wasn't playing, you're stuck starting McLouth or Hairston

Yeah, he's not so good with RISP

Yeah, that's probably right but I wonder if that's best

That's right, the lefty starter managed to get him out all those zero times last night...

Yes, if only there were a better hitter who's been getting on base at an extremely impressive rate since the All-Star break...

I worry more about him on defense in a spacious outfield, to be honest

Not to mention that, as Rob noted, attributing the whole .91 to Zim is ludicrous

Indeed. That is a signifcantly diminished lineup.

Commented on Nationals Trade Rumors: Nats in market for bullpen arm? Young shortstops? on Jul 23 2014, 12:09p
Yeah, plus Werth supposedly has that no trade clause and seems to very much want to stay

Yeah, sorry I threw that bit of snark in there

Well, I suppose they could have discussed more details of when "try to take the extra base" didn't apply

Well, if that's the plan (which we don't know) it is a bit better

Well sure, subsequent decisions could change the thinking to some extent, but I gave my opinion based on what I know

No, because Desmond was just as far off the bag, but the SS and 2B weren't close to it.
Commented on The Nationals' walk-off win in GIFs, + Bryce Harper staring contest, + Elmo dancing? on Jul 21 2014, 12:07p
I think Harper's base running is generally very good, but like other areas of his game he makes mistakes
