Isn't the equestrian the rider and not the horse?  Don't you mean Dark Equine?

Not a good day for the Adams family. Collins is also making them think, me thinks

Can we close this and move it to the off topic forum? I like to read every thread with a new post and this is annoying a couple weeks out from opening day.

It's not off topic, he's predicting Austin Adams makes the 25 man roster.

To get back on topic, why are we thinking Adams has a realistic shot?

Collins has looked good. Does Romero have any options left?

Adams has a rocket arm but control has been his problem.  Collins could be the spring surprise. Not sure but seems Romero should have optipns

Romero is out of options, which is why Tampa moved him. They wanted to open a roster spot but I forget who they needed the spot for.

If you were really enamored of TIMMEH! Collins, then I suppose you could try to move Romero. There's always a market for a lefty who throws hard, and he had some success last year.  But if Collins is on a minor league contract, then the best move might be to wait for a slot to open due to DL and keep both in the system.

Nice article on Tiny Tim.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nationals-journal/wp/2018/03/19/finally-healthy-nationals-reliever-tim-collins-makes-pitch-for-a-big-league-return/?hpid=hp_regional-hp-cards_rhp-card-sports%3Ahomepage%2Fcard

My best guess is he starts in the minors until he hits an opt out date (7/1).

I think there's a decent chance that Benoit doesn't last through April.  Injuries could mess that up, but I think Cole ends up the 4th righty in the pen when Fedde is brought up. I think the Hellickson thing is more of a courtesy to Boras to keep him pitching and that he opts out when someone wants to give him a major league job.

When I saw Benoit pitch a couple weeks ago he looked like I could hit him


But it was early

Nah, you'll want to punch him many times by seasons end.

A signing I just don't  get. It seems every year Rizzo has a need to have a washed up reliever who gets pounded every outing.  Benoit, Blanton is thy name.

Hector Carrasco is tanned, rested, and ready.  Do it Rizzo.
