Over the course of the Nats first 81 games (where they played 19 games over .500), the pitching allowed 4.11 runs per game, since then the pitching has gotten even better, giving up just 3.83 runs per game.
You would think that would help the Nats win more often, but nope, not the case, because the offense, which averaged 4.13 runs per game in the first 81 games, has dropped to an average of 3.1 runs per game over their last 29 games. (THAT'S MORE THAN ONE RUN PER GAME LESS)
I've said it before and will again, Castilla and Guillen have no business playing as hurt as they are. They are hurting the team, and Frank Robinson and his precious chemistry are going down the toilet. Send Castilla and Guillen to the DL, call up Brendon Watson (.357 BA and a .404 OBP) and Rick Short (.384 BA and a .459 OBP) Have Watson play RF for the two weeks Guillen is on the DL and if he does the job like many think he will, shove Guillen in left field when he gets back and keep Wilkerson in center. Have Rick Short split playing time with Vidro and if his bat continues to stay hot, have Vidro work off the bench. For third base, either give Blanco a chance while Castilla is out, or call up Juan Melo (.336 BA, and a .376) and see if he can do the job. Melo can also play SS every once in a while.
If it all works out, the Nats will end up with very strong bench and because the team would be hitting and winning, everyone would be happy, well everyone except Wilson...
