For those that don't want technology interfering with the game you are against Bryce Harper.  Dude will not get calls his way until he changes and gets umps to respect him and like him more.  These asshats in blue are begging for these outside pitches to punch him out on.
He's had a ton of borderline calls go his way.

If you drop Werth from the lineup who do you put in?  Extend Span and put him in left? Please don't say den Dekker or Moore.  They would have to eat almost all of Werth's salary for some team to take him and I'm not sure that too many teams would want him either unless he goes to the AL and becomes a DH.   I really wanted the nats to get CarGo from the rockies.   sigh.   The nats have a decent amount of young arms in the system, but lacks a lot in the position player area and after TT gets called up and is in the show for good then it's really bare for top prospects.
I'm not advocating for this, nor will it happen, but if you bring back Span, Taylor in LF would be a pretty nice option there and would allow for Turner to ease into the lineup rather than be expected to carry the load from day one. I don't think Werth is terrible if he can stay off the field, I think he brings a lot to the team, actually, but I wouldn't mind this option at all.

Let’s consider something else about last night’s game.  Presumably, if the 7th inning had proceeded as Williams had planned, Ross would have pitched the inning without giving up any runs and then gone to the 8th, where Storen would have pitched and then Papelbon in the 9th.

What does this tell us?  It tells us that Matt was willing to give Thornton and Janssen ANOTHER DAY OFF!  Before last night, Thornton hadn’t pitched since the 26th.  Perhaps that’s the reason his performance was…less than crisp?  Relief pitchers need regular work and getting a week off isn’t considered regular work.

Imagine being a Cubs fan and having gone thru this for more than 100 years...

I was agreeing with FP when he said he was shocked when Williams sent Ross out in the 7th to face Duda again. I thought the logical move would be to have Thornton face him and if successful bring in Drew for the 8th and Papelbon to close it out but no, Matt Williams had to go with Ross. :(

...though I'd settle for a manager who actually manages and when a game is late and close, the manager REALLY needs to manage.  Knowing a pitcher's pitch count is not managing.

...

...

I can't recall a time when Matt Williams has ever given a reason for leaving a pitcher in a game, other than pitch count.  I can just see the mental midgets in the Nationals dugout trying to figure out the pitch count in order to determine whether a pitcher is still effective because the actually game situation would only matter if you're paying attention to what's happening in the game.

Lucas Duda drove in all three runs for the Mets. Thornton had three lefties to face. Two reached.

He had an off night but I'd be far less mad if he had allowed them to reach while facing them in the seventh like he should have.
