Commented on Game 97 WPA: Power up the middle. Nats 7, Rox 2 on Jul 22 2014, 11:13a
Well, that is a major bummer.
Commented on Nationals' 2nd Round pick Andrew Suarez not signing, returning to University of Miami on Jul 18 2014, 4:57p
Totally unrelated to anything, if you haven't noticed lately, Austin Voth requests you review his prefromance this year by continuing to be awesome on the mound.

Well, it isn't over yet.

Yeah, the Nationals cannot afford to dump MLB talent in 2014.
Commented on Washington Nationals Trade Rumors: Where are the Nats' needs? Where are the rumors? on Jul 18 2014, 2:28p
They aren't dead, but they are hardly thriving.

I don't know that GMDM is any better than Baird.

Yeah, I don't think it is realistic that we'll get rid of McLouth given his salary.
Commented on Washington Nationals Trade Rumors: Where are the Nats' needs? Where are the rumors? on Jul 18 2014, 10:54a
Actually, no I don't think that. If I was going to get the Nationals to upgrade something it would be the bench.

Is Ed Wade really the standard for GM incompetance now?

Seems like Tampa would want more, unless they really believe in Souza or Taylor.

Let's play rank 4 pitchers.

Did I miss the part about Ryan Zimmerman coming back to 3rd and playing poorly?

Still seems like a crazy way to determine home field advantage.
Commented on Nationals' Tyler Clippard makes second All-Star Game appearance in NL's 5-3 loss to the AL on Jul 16 2014, 3:22p - 1 reply
I shoul clarify. I have seen Fedde mentioned as a possible top 5 before his injury.

Different.
Commented on 2014 MLB Draft: Nationals' top two picks, Erick Fedde and Andrew Suarez, remain unsigned on Jul 16 2014, 12:00p
You keep saying "he was top-5" but I haven't read anywhere that makes that claim in anything close to certain terms.

FWIW, I don't find many AL fans that are truly as die-hard about the DH.

I'm not sure what either of those really have to do with speed.
Commented on Game 92 WPA: Supermoon break! Nats 10, FF 3 on Jul 14 2014, 2:45p
Sure, but a huge part of Beltran's value in his hey-day came from playing CF.
Commented on Game 92 WPA: Supermoon break! Nats 10, FF 3 on Jul 14 2014, 2:40p
20 WAR over 7 years wouldn't be a great return, but it would certainly make all the teeth-gnashing about Werth's contract a bit silly.
Commented on Game 92 WPA: Supermoon break! Nats 10, FF 3 on Jul 14 2014, 2:08p
Perhaps he has been unlucky, but it also could be that he's 37 and has lost a step.

Four extra picks in the top 100.... That could be one wicked draft class.

Also, voting multiple times is super easy, since you only have to fill in the anti-bot numbers.

Not sure that Soriano is worth a QO.

Sure, but simply because a deal is a bad deal, doesn't mean that you can end it.

It seems so ridiculous that MASN territory blocks MLB's streaming service, which in turns blocks a potential MASN service.

Yeah, I'm curious if the Nationals could make a seperate deal as a way to gain leverage.

Johansen is getting roughed up in A ball, I doubt that you'll see him.

At this point, I am sure that the Nationals would love to do something like that.

The cord cutters are actually helping to drive the price-increases.

However, you like to slice that. MLB was the Nationals ownership at the time.

A couple points

Oh, they are sensitive to it, but only to the point where they believe fans will really leave.

I think it is combination of that and the fact that we don't really have any PH that is worth mentioning.
Commented on Nationals Trade Rumors: Nats in market for Ian Desmond's eventual replacement? on Jul 9 2014, 12:19p
Yep, much as I hate the Angelos, the MASN dispute is solely the fault of Nationals for agreeing to a deal that provides for a "re-negotiation" without means to walk away.

What I am stuck on is the general disdain that some posters have shown toward Desmond regarding his contract.

They rank in the top 1/3 of MLB payrolls.
Commented on Nationals Trade Rumors: Nats in market for Ian Desmond's eventual replacement? on Jul 8 2014, 6:04p
All true, but given all those caveats, I think that hitting 30HRs in the MLB would be an extremely rare thing.

Even better numbers, Desmond has produced nearly 3X as many WAR since Castro has been in the league, despite playing 35 fewer games.

Well, isn't that a bit like saying "Why aren't the Nationals offering market-rate+ for this guy? Where is their loyalty to thier own system and the guys that gave them 2012?"

Because if we want a guy to potentially replace Desmond, he's not going to need more than one season at AAA.
Commented on Nationals Trade Rumors: Nats in market for Ian Desmond's eventual replacement? on Jul 8 2014, 3:01p
I think AAA would be a mistake.

That would depend on the player targeted. MLBTR reported this story earlier saying that the Nationals were targeting players younger than the three guys in AZ (Gregorius, Owings, and Ahmed).

Jose Fernandez was a shock when he jumped from A+ to majors. No way somebody at 19 jumps from A ball to the MLB.
