ASSCLOWN is right here. Collin frankly never reached his potential in DC, I hope he does in Detroit. The Syracuse shuttle can't be fun but that's what the option system is designed for. He was given a chance to start and and a long look as a reliever.
As for Peralta, he was a scrap heap got that got a fair shot in DC, but he wasn't needed last season, the bullpen was great.
Hanrahan in DC was one of the worst pitchers I have ever seen, and the Nats pitched Antonio Osuna. He also got a much bigger shot in DC than in LA.
There's valid points being made about the team, payroll, etc. The mass hysteria affect is shouting down reason, however.
Boswell BASES his whole piece on the MASN money, which is a logical flaw. It's a poor piece because he focused on emotion and not on the fact that the MASN money is actually irrelevant to the low payroll.
