Is there any injury that can hurt us?
« Topic Start: September 28, 2012, 03:25:17 PM »
Is there any devastating injuries in the next week that could derail the Nats playoff chances? At this point, the only ones that could be really damaging is one to Gio or JZ. Maybe Detwiler. For the position players, we can survive one injury to anyone, but having multiple injuries would be devastating.

LaRoche's left handed bat, Werth's leadership and leadoff abilities, and Zimmerman's overall production I think would all be big time losses to this team.

Playoff games=facing the best pitchers in the league mostly, so getting on base and having a balanced lineup is at a premium.

Losing a middle infielder would suck

I don't get this thread. Is this a way of asking who is the MVP or most important player?

Weird.

Gio would be the worst.  Storen 2nd.  Suzuki 3rd.  I think we could tolerate anything else.

The good thing is we know that none of our regulars will get injured the rest of the year.

Agreed. Any battery problems like that would likely be fatal. We're going to need a lot of things to work out to win it all this year.

Should be okay.  We don't play the Braves again unless we get them in the playoffs.  :P

An injury to The Kid would be devastating.  He's been a catalyst for this team ever since he got here.
