Skole? The guy that will be lucky to stick at 3B due to size/range? Highly doubtful.

I'm feeling lucky today. An avatar bet ?

What if?

Desmond has done nothing in three years.

Espinoa for a year straight now.



This is Desmond's last shot IMO.  I'm not ready to throw Espi out yet.  He had solid numbers to start last year and then struggled.  These next few months are huge for him.

Kobernus, Skole , Rendon and Hague  are all viable replacements and you will start seeing them next year. Rendon could have been a September call up except for his ankle.



I'm not convinced any of those are MLB regulars outside of Rendon.  And Rendon can't stay healthy.  He sprained his good ankle running bases.  Not a great start to his career after all the injuries at Rice.

Kobernus should get a shot at some point, the problem is neither he nor Lombo is a shortstop and we really don't have any on the way soon (not saying he or Lombo will stick, but they deserve a shot)

Too bad they didn't keep Hairston, he would be the 2nd baseman today.

Salty on who? Espinoa?

I've pretty much given up on him.

I loved Danny the first half of last year. Since then, it's just getting harder and harder to defend him.

You know how someone posts a photo of a "K" with Strasburg's image in it?  Personally, I feel we should have another one, except this time with Espinosa's image in it.  Will be put to good use almost every game.

Because mocking Nationals players (outside of Desmond 8) ) is such a cool thing to do?

The team is so development oriented that they have gotten to the position where there is little cost for non-performance.  The kid who gets advanced early has no consequence for failing to progress and for developing bad habits.  Don't say Lannan - he was sent down on a numbers game.  Who else?

How is it good for anyone,  him or the team, to have him playing like this?  He has to be sent down.
