now would be a nice time for bally to lose control of a 94 MPH fastball.

Bob just gave the bullpen the kiss of death.

When your bullpen is THIS much better than your starters, time to maybe look at your rotation and your bullpen and see who can be swapped.

Problem with that is most of the former starters in the pen are much better as relievers.  Stammen, Balester, Clippard, and Burnett are clearly better in the pen.  Detwiler is just there in a numbers game right now.  Olsen can't seem to find enough health/consistency to stay in the rotation.

JZ looks like velocity is back and control is iffy right now.  He's had a couple of good starts, a really good start, and a couple of bad ones.  I would expect that to be worked out by spring training once he's had time to do enough throwing to get the feel for all his pitches all the way back.  The other 4 in the rotation should be told to pitch lights out the rest of the way or risk being replaced if the right deal comes along.

Why do they let Mench bat? You can speed up the game by just ringing him up from the dugout.

I waited 3 hours to see Collin and my computer blacked out and i just got it back on. So I missed all of it.

Checked nationals.com when I got home, saw that the Nats website headline generating algorithm is getting its usual workout.

"Nats <negative verb> with <pitchername>'s bad start"

"Nats behind early against <team name>"

"Riggleman receives praise from Nats FO"

I just checked gameday and it looks like Collin had a simple inning with  no runs! :shock: :whistle: :glug: :pray:

he had a wild pitch, and a would-be beanball (luckily thrown against a lefty.)  but i think that aspect of him freezes batters up a little bit.  why commit to swinging when there is a 15% chance you have to drop to the ground to prevent a concussion?  get 'em bally.

The worst part is that final part obviously.  As much as it seemed to make sense to have a caretaker manager until everyone is healthy/the first wave of prospects is here and established, Riggleman just has to go.  I hope the website is just blowing smoke and we get the "surprise" firing some time right after the final out on 10/3.

Firing Riggleman isn't going to accomplish much of anything, sadly.

I think its good to have a guy a little wild around. He certainly doesn't want to hit anyone. But on the other hand you don't want to just throw it down the middle and you are the victim of a come backer.
 I am a little upset. I did wait 3 hours to watch him pitch and right in between innings my computer crashes.
 Oh well Good Job Bally and the rest of the Bullpen. They seem to have it together.
 Good nite!
