moore has to replace laroche or morse, and (just for this year) I'm not sure he's better than LaRoche I don't want to see him this year because that probably means Morse is either very injured or has really regressed

Doesn't LaRoche have a 2013 option?

Just wondering about our long term 1B option.

Which, regardless of how he hits this year, I don't see the Nats picking up. Nor do I think they should.

The money would be better spent on a CF/SS/2B/leadoff hitter.

I just don't want Marrero marched out there as an option once he gets healthy. I don't want a singles hitter at first.

Morse would most definitely move over to 1st.

Harper, who should eventually hit, will be in LF. Problem solved! :)

i love our bench, but with morse down, i think moore would give us a bigger boost day in and day out than the bench guys would as fill-in parts.  again nady/derosa - i am thrilled they are reserves for us - but that's what they are at this point in their careers.

Can't wait for that day.

I think we forget how damn amazing he was last year. Hit .300 with 31 homers and darn good 1B defense? :az:

Imagine these injuries with last year's bench.... Yikes.

No you don't have a new member but...

The Nationals were 14-8 in the month of April. Pretty good if you ask me!

A great record, a smoking pitching staff, and three good looking rookies in Harper, Lombo, and Moore. Yes, offense is struggling with Morse and Zim out but Zim will be back in a week or so and the young guns will start to produce.

i posted this on the "gonna be a rough...." thread, but to paraphrase, while it's obviously a disappointment to lose 3 in a row, we did take on the best team in the NL (IMHO), featuring the best pitcher and best hitter, and we more than held our own.  We were in every game, we held their offense largely in check, and we were one blown save away from taking at least one game, that's with an offense that is just slightly above AAA level.  I'm pretty happy overall where we are right now - 14-8, 1st place is something we all would have been happy with if offered to us on April 1st.

I tell you what. Having to call up Harper and Moore and getting Lombo more ABs is going to help us in the long run. This will accelerate their learning curve, IMO.

Well since somebody doesn't know how to heed a warning, somebody will be taking the day off.

No, just enforcing a warning I issued the other night, which someone continued to ignore.

Please don't. People just make way too big of a deal about it.

But for a second I was highy intrigued.
