2018 Spring Training Discussion
« Topic Start: February 15, 2018, 11:39:32 AM »
With Martinez hosting his first "Circle of Trust" discussions or whatever, baseball is back, I guess. Bad spring training photos are in full swing, though. Wanted to start a thread to talk about on-the-field/team stuff (separate from the ballpark thread).

Eaton plans on being ready OD: http://www.masnsports.com/nationals-pastime/2018/02/eaton-says-opening-day-return-is-easily-attainable.html

Also Rendon cut his hair.

Was surprised to see the photo of Rendon with his new haircut. He's officially on my "do not draft list" for fantasy baseball now.

Can someone post a picture of said haircut? I can’t find it.

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeriste mitlen is the worst.

Reminds me of a story.    Me and the missus got to the stadium early for the WNFF meet up.    The usher said, "There's a guy over there who's waiting for the Loft to open as well."     So I walks over to the guy and ask, "Are you waitin' for the WNFF meet up?"    He sez, "Yeah.    I'm probably the biggest jerk on the forum."    (I won't mention his name.)    I sez, "Hold on a minute.    There's no way."     I introduced myself and he knew he was bested.

Speaking of haircuts, this is what Jayson Werth used to look like.

Had to find it myself. Hair went from Rendon’s head to Turner’s face apparently.

Saw yesterday that Doolittle will be the closer, to no surprise.

Koda Glover showed up to camp with shoulder pain and an MRI revealed inflammation. He's shut down.

Zuckerman:

Koda Glover hasn’t thrown yet in camp. Reported to Florida with shoulder soreness. Has been participating in all other drills. Martinez: “We’re going to give him some time.”

Also Zuckerman:

Glover did get an MRI on his shoulder, revealed inflammation only. Missed much of last year with a rotator cuff issue.

Much better. There are very few men who look bad with long hair. He is one.

Shoulder issues are a huge red flag. That's why you never have enough pitching, as they say.

I guess he needs supervised showers. Or at least the duck stickers on the floor.

Here is the MLB TV schedule. Looks like the Nats-Astros game is on Friday.

Meh, but better than what the Nats already had, especially with Glover on the shelf.
