The push is ON from these teams.  For the second night in a row, the only team to lose was the loser of the St. Louis/Milwaukee game.  The Mets have some magic going at home, and the Phillies take 2 from Boston.  Damn.   The Cubs are also a different at home vs away.

I suppose it's still better than being 19-31, in 4th place and planning a fire sale.

Uh oh

It seems like some of you are rooting against Zimmerman? Oh no, he might take a roster spot from a younger player, or maybe he will get hurt? I wouldn't want to be in a fox hole with you guys...  How about we bring him up when he's healthy and see what happens?  Maybe he rips a few clutch doubles down the stretch, and rides off into the sunset after the season? The pessimism here on this board is well noted

I’d hope they understand the risks
If they did, MLB wouldn't have to make this public.

Loudoun South lost 12-9 so they move to the "one loss" bracket.    If they win, they're in.    If they lose, they'll be back in school tomorrow.

The Clubhouse / Re: Eaton for Giolito Lopez and Dunning
« Last post by Slateman on Today at 06:44:08 AM »
Not counting tonight's games:
Eaton: . 290 / .376 /.436, 13SBs, 11HRs
Harper: .254 / .373 / .492, 7SBs, 26 HRs

Giolito has a 4.82 ERA since July 1 (before tonight's shutout)

Seems we made the right decision keeping Eaton.

If we're judging this purely by performance, than absolutely not.

Giolito has been better than Corbin. Particularly when you factor in Giolito is pitching in the American league. Giolito had a rough July. Corbin had a rough June. But Giolito has righted the ship, posting a 2.12 ERA over his last five starts. But for the season Giolito has been better, posting a 4.7 WAR to Corbin's 4.0. That difference is marginal, yes, but there is a difference.

Harper is having his worst year, maybe ever? This is Harper's floor. And he's still significantly better than Eaton, posting a 3.7 WAR to Eaton's 2.5 Their OBP's are virtually identical, and Harper obviously has more power. While Eaton hits for a higher average, Harper has been a monster with runners on base.

The biggest issue to me though is age. Giolito is 25, Harper will be 27 at the end of the year. Corbin and Eaton are both 30. You are far more likely to get much more production out of Giolito and Harper in the next few years than Corbin and Eaton.

Sorry, but by any logical examination of the statistics, the Nationals downgraded by keeping Eaton and signing Corbin.

Bad night:

Nats blow another late lead and lose.
Cubs win.
Cardinals win.
Phillies win.
Mets win.
And just for good measure, Braves win.

The push is ON from these teams.  For the second night in a row, the only team to lose was the loser of the St. Louis/Milwaukee game.  The Mets have some magic going at home, and the Phillies take 2 from Boston.  Damn.   The Cubs are also a different at home vs away.
