Nats can't afford the airfare to call up Marrero because they're paying for a team of high-priced therapists to keep the pitchers from homicidal thoughts.

Soriano is a huge K or Double Play candidate. However he could also hit a grand slam.

What makes people think Davey Johnson will demand Rizzo to call up the youngsters? This guy is starting Stairs left and right...

Are there any hitters in our farm system that have a chance to be great in the bigs other than Harper and Norris?

Norris is fool's gold.

Werth overcomes the humiliation on paydays.

Yeah, he's laughing all the way to the bank.

Desmond will never hit, at least not for the foreseeable future.  I don't think anyone was even really expecting him to hit.
He was expected to be adequate with a bit of pop. Not horrendous like this

See my earlier post:

This is a REAL chance for the Nationals to SWEEP ALL 4 GAMES and start a REAL run for the PLAYOFFS. Cubs pitching is horrible!

But we have a habit of making other team's horrible pitchers look like the second coming Grover Cleaveland Alexander.

I thought he could hit .260ish.  He never seemed like a high OBP guy last year and they haven't been able to force him to learn that skill.  But he just looks like he's better off not swinging the bat and hoping for a HBP.

Can you explain BAPIP? Batting average on balls in play, right? How does it work?
It's basically what it says it is--of the number of times someone put the ball in play (that is, at-bats minus home runs minus strikeouts), how many times did it turn into a hit?  A really high BABIP usually means a hitter's getting lucky.
He was expected to be adequate with a bit of pop. Not horrendous like this
Yeah, the lack of pop is concerning.  It makes me think there may be something to the theory people are tossing around that he's playing hurt.

Bernadina looking like he doesn't know how to catch a fly ball. Almost thought we were about to have another disaster right there.

Stairs at first and Cora at third. This looks like a throwaway game. Too bad JZ is pitching. He deserves better than this. Oh yeah...Bernadina looks friggin' lost.  :evil:

It's too bad Stares couldn't have just disintegrated on that play.

The only reason anyone can possibly still be watching this game is to see how many runs the opposing team will get.     :bang:
