I honestly think Lannan isn't preparing as well in the minors because he thinks he's above it, or doesn't need to, or whatever. Before Lannan lovers attack me, I'm saying he's a hell of a lot better than his probably close to 10ERA at this point.

Can't change the fact the dude got raped in AA last June, gets called up, returns to above average pitcher status. Sent down again, gets lit up the majority of his starts again. It means nothing, other than Lannan thinks he's better than the minors leagues. I also realize that's a hell of a statement to make about someone you never met, but the numbers just don't make any sense otherwise. Because since he became an MLB mainstay, and called an ace of the staff even for a while, he's been getting raped in the minors leagues, yet is fine the second he gets called up. So these numbers don't worry me one bit. Likewise, short of some devastating injuries, I don't think we ever see him in a Nats uni again.

It's obviously mental.

I think Lannan might be a better big league pitcher than AAA pitcher because those hitters hit off speed junk better. Whereas Harper is the opposite because in the big leagues, pitchers aren't scared to throw him fastballs.

I feel bad for Lannan. He was caught up in a numbers game. I hope he fights through it.

Nats management themselves think it ridiculous he's in the minors but they feel they had no other choice given the structure of the rotation and the talent.

The guy probably had a mental breakdown when he was sent down :lol:

At least he's making his 5mil right!

If he is half-assing it, it is to his own detriment. Teams did not want to trade for him prior to his being sent down, I can't imagine many will be likely to sign him to a guaranteed major league deal if these numbers stay the same.

I feel terrible for Lannan. I know he's only got so-so stuff, and that's probably what's at the root of this, but when he loses confidence, he goes to pieces.

Damn, I hate to see this. I was never a huge Lannan fan, but he's put a dagger in his career now. No team will even want him as a spare part in a trade. It's been almost a month since he's had a game he didn't give up five runs in, hasn't it? Just a shame all around.

Seems right to shop Lannan but I'm not sure why we are targeting a reliever with Storen and Lidge scheduled to return.  I'd like to get a catcher or a bench bat.
