hmm this is kind of random but does anyone else get the feeling that Carpenter/Knight and basically the NATS in general are kinda trying to make fans almost forget about Strasburg? I haven't heard them talkk about Stephen in awhile and they showed the rookie graphic and it didn't even include Strasburg at all.
None of the fans are going to forget about Strasburg, there is no point in their reminiscing about him.  Obviously he was easily the best rookie on the club.  When he comes back he will be the best pitcher.  Until then, it's worth at least trying to be excited about other players.

Lannan was serviceable...remember he is a 4th/5th starter...he is what he is.

Our offense lost us yet another game.  They have been so crappy.

He gave up 3, struck out a bajillion, and should have been allowed to finish the 7th. Now who's the hater? :stir:

In terms of character, he's an all time favorite with me. Any guy making the minimum that sets up his own charity is above and beyond in my opinion.

From the gamer on Nats Insider:

Quote from: Mark Zuckerman
Davis is a 27-year-old career minor-leaguer who's only on the Marlins roster because of the loss of three other catchers: Ronny Paulino to a PED suspension, John Baker to Tommy John surgery, Brett Hayes to a separated shoulder (an injury caused by Nyjer Morgan). He knew Morgan had no reason to steal second base there, but he also knew he might.

"I had a feeling," Davis said. "I knew it was the wrong situation, but it was the wrong situation for him to steal after we hit him that one time. He's not really playing by those rules, so it was definitely in my mind."
...
Asked if he had any problem with Morgan getting thrown out in that spot, Jim Riggleman responded: "No."

"That's his game," the Nats manager said. "I can't ask him to hit eighth but don't run. I really thought he would get that base. The pitcher wasn't real quick to the plate. But the catcher made a great throw, and he got him. That's Nyjer's game. I can't take that away from him."

Actually, Riggleman can. He's the manager. He can put the stop sign on. He can also choose to bench a guy is not doing a whole lot these days to help his team win.


And more...

Quote
In 16 games since returning back to D.C. following that Phillies series, Morgan is hitting .196. He's been caught stealing three of five times. Worse, he's been involved in a string of high-profile situations, some game-related, some non-game-related, all of them drawing negative attention to himself and to the Nationals.

And that's the biggest problem about all of this: Nyjer Morgan has been the center of attention on this team for more than two weeks now, and none of it for the right reasons. At a time when fans and media should be focused on Danny Espinosa and Jordan Zimmermann and Wilson Ramos and John Lannan and Yunesky Maya and just about anyone else on the roster, all we're talking and writing about is Nyjer Morgan.

It shouldn't be this way. The final scene of this play should have been presented by now. Watson should have made his ruling. Morgan should be serving his suspension. Short of that, Morgan shouldn't be doing anything on the baseball field that draws unnecessary attention to himself. And Riggleman shouldn't be putting him into situations that allow him to draw unnecessary attention to himself, not to mention hurting his team's chances of winning.

It's time for this story to be over. The Nats have 21 games left to play this season. Nyjer Morgan shouldn't be the focal point of each of them.

Wow.  I know Riggleman is an incompetent donk but that's just incredible.  Someone should introduce him to Jim Zorn.

My opinion, this is the best piece Zuckerman's written since he started Nats Insider.

oh what ... so we can hear people nag about justin maxwell, willie harris and kevin mench instead?

i don't agree with a lot of morgan's recent antics nor am i happy with his .197 average in the last two weeks ... but i also don't care if i sound like a broken record when i say we are freaked @ the OF spot.

Then stop watching if it's so horrible.

To excuse stupid play because you have no one better is flat out lazy.

Give me someone that's not nearly as talented but doesn't make stupid mistakes over and over seven days a week.
