I absolutely disagree . We will end up fighting for third place in the division with the Mets and MarlIns if we lose both. Brown and TMo are unproven. I like Moore but he has what less than 150 AB's? Brown and Perez have not shown they can hit. But to be fair I thought that Lombo needed to spend the year in Syracuse after 30 AB's in his September call up.
I don't doubt we fight for third if both are gone. I think the team can make do without Morse or LaRoche with Moore in the outfield. I still think it's best to try and trade Morse this offseason and get something in return since next year the Nats will get nothing since they won't offer him a qualifying offer (he makes 7 this year and will definitely take 13+ next year). Morse is awesome, but I think his production offensively will be made up by an emerging Harper and someone like Moore. LaRoche is necessary for his power threat and lefty bat.
