Ladson tweets the Nats depth chart and then adds: 'I'm expecting this to change tonight.'  What is he saying?

Who the hell knows what hes saying.

So, apparently I just got a call from the Nats.  Something about needing to bring my glove and paying for my own Greyhound ticket to Cincinnati.

Desmond's OBP is now at .294, that's worse than last year.

Was .278 before his last hit or two. OBP is just not what he delivers.  That does not mean his offense does not have a place in an every day line up (in contrast to Espinosa's results this year).  It just means he is miscast as a leadoff hitter and not in the slot that optimizes team run production.

Like the words OBP and optimizing run production mean a thing to the Nats FO.

Could you imagine this pitching staff with an offense that had put up 52 more runs at this point? :az:

If the season ended today, the 2.87 R/G spread between the NL-best Cardinals and the NL-worst Pirates would be the largest such spread in at least the last 50 years.

Of course I'm guessing things will average out a bit over the rest of the season, but it's still coladar-interesting.

look at some of the cards games, 11-5, 10-3, 11-1, 13-1, 10-7, 12-2- we could go a whole series without scoring that many runs

Comment From wannabe GM
could the nats pursue hamilton this offseason and have an outfield of hammilton-harper-werth with morse at first? That would instantly fix their offensive problems.

Paul Swydan:
It would, at least in the short term, and I think we can expect them to be in the running for him.

I guess I don't really see it happening, but it'd be awesome if it did.  Honestly, though, if LaRoche keeps doing what he's doing, I think they'll pick up his option.

The Nats only have four players with enough plate appearances per team game to qualify for the batting title.  In a game or two, that number will drop to three when Werth is removed from the list.  Just another example of how much of an impact injuries have had this season. 

Currently (not counting games played on Tuesday) we are 9th, 6th, 10th and 8th in AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS.  Sadly we are 12th in runs.

We'll be in the running, that's for sure, Ted does like to make a show of throwing the second highest bid out there.
