Off-Topic: The Washington Nationals Thread

Recommended Posts

Gio is going to keep having Gio games. He'll be okay. Tanner is very disconcerting. Also, I wish the offense would have some games where they would score 5/6 runs instead of 0/1/2 or 16+.

Hellickson is a 5 that you probably should send to the pen. Fedde is on the DL and didn't seem to be ready anyway.

Prior to Fedde going on the DL, I figured they could gamble with a bit and have a Hellickson/Fedde double headed starter. Get 3-4 innings from each, have them rotate the starts/wins. They are both only good for 80 or so pitches, but you could treat them as one guy giving you 60 a piece, it could work.

Granted, it makes the pen thinner, but, in theory, that would mean that you wouldn't expect to go to the pen often on day five. If they're getting shellacked, oh well, no need to really burn the pen arms.

If you had to bet on it right now, would you bet on the Nats making the playoffs this year?

Nope. To be honest, that hasn't changed since early-to-mid April.

Either Rizzo pulls off some big deals for a couple starters, or he needs to sell at the deadline

Might as well be sellers because they have no chance with clown shoes Martinez managing the club.

Curious, what percentage of the Nats issues are attributable to Martinez? Consider injuries, reeling group of starting pitchers, Harper struggles, etc.

There's no good way to put a number per say, but many think his mistakes are greatly outweighing what he's bringing to the table.

2013 season, 2014 postseason, 2015 season, 2016 postseason

 

It ain't the manager and coaches. This is the same core group of players that simply cant perform under pressure situations. 

 

If they cant sweep the Mets and come out and take 4 of their 6 out of the ASB, the conversation needs to be about what prospects you can get for Murphy,  Herrera, Doolittle, Rendon, and Turner.

And who has he been watching the last 2+ seasons. Werth, Harper,  Rendon, Zimmerman ...

 

All chokes. Sell high in him. Hes Andrus 2.0
