Acquire a short stop or center fielder.

Acquire one more starter.

Stop choking.

Cut Espi

Bench Face

Trade a SP prospect to BOS for a catcher

Cut espy. Let him be a stay at home dad.
Same for face.

The nats have an amazing opportunity to get rid of prospect hugger Rizzo. Sure he makes good trades, but he needs to sometimes overpay to get over the top this year. I don't care about the team 5 years from now when this season is still going on.

Extremely concerned about our minor league system; no impact hitters even close to the majors - not even guys who look like bench bats. Sure, we have young talent in the lineup (Turner, Harper, Rendon) but there is just nothing on the way on offense.

Then ownership has to overpay for bats.

Can't wait to give Cespedes $100 million! That totally won't backfire.

I've said that many times now. There's no bats in the system. Gotta trade for one. Like it's been said many times now, Boston is a good match.

Could've had him for "cheap" this year, but the ownership tried to lowball him. Oh well.

Fire Rizzo before he gives out any more contracts. His first experiment, Werth, was one of the worst players tonight. Strasburg and Zimmerman are money pits, Scherzer will look bad at the end. I don't want him hamstringing us any further than he already has.

Nope. Another need. Get Cole throwing from the stretch all offseason. Enough with the SP experiment. He'll be fine as a RP.

Honestly, no, not really.

Fire Rizzo before he gives out any more contracts. His first experiment, Werth, was one of the worst players tonight. Strasburg and Zimmerman are money pits, Scherzer will look bad at the end. I don't want him hamstringing us any further than he already has.
Why is it the big money contracts don't hamstring teams like the Dodger, Cubs, Marlins, Red Sox, or Yankees? Contracts aren't the issue here.

Whatever is done has to be done for the 2018 season as well. In 2018, we'll be getting a contract year out of Bryce, Murphy's last season here, quality innings out of Lopez and Giolito, Turner in his prime, and Strasburg coming back from his second TJS.

Sign Melancon.  Find a SS upgrade.  Keep Drew and Hersey.

Not sure I'd call Harper young talent anymore.  I think he's toast.

This team has enough people to play CF for the forseable future. Hell, we can move Harper there if we have to. It's far more difficult to find a good shortstop than a good outfielder.

No more Sendley please. And Espinosa. Turner to short. Sign Jansen. Make a run at Cespedes if he opts out.

It has to be a CF.  Turner is not an outfielder.
