Point is, he cannot slide to first this year (and DH will never be an option) because the team is unwilling, politically, to bench Zimmerman.  There is nowhere in the outfield for him.  You cannot trade any of Robles, Soto, or Eaton, because you won't get nearly their value in trade.  You cannot sit any of the three either.  Harper is a man without a position as far as the Nats are concerned. 

If the team had been willing to bench Zimmerman, I think Harper would still be a Nat.

Zimmerman still starting when we should be contending sums this team up.

If we let Harper go because of Zimmerman we are idiots and dont deserve to win.

I need some sort of intervention.  I just can’t with this team anymore.  It’s game four and I found myself unable to watch or listen due to PTSD this team has caused me.  Of course I followed it on my phone. Like am addict I needed a little hit.  I got excited when they had a lead, the furious.  The baserunning, the pitching, the injuries already.  What did I do to deserve this fate?  How do you guys cope? Why do you keep coming back for more?!

The heart was there today. And it sure was nice to walk it off on Bryce and company.

Yeah, it's definitely time to try something vastly different. Rizzo needs to go as well. Only untouchables for me are: Scherzer, Trea and Soto.

Rosenthal needs to go on the DL immediately.  I'm willing to give Joe Ross some slack and see how he does after a good nights rest.  Grace has never impressed me.  Too bad Seth Romero is a knothead and blew out his elbow.  Is Nuno still around somewhere?

I have no idea how to feel about 4-4.  It feels like we are 2-12.  I felt fortunate to be 2-3, and then I thought we let one get away yesterday.  Meanwhile, today has me totally conflicted, because even the we were up 12-1 in the 7th, this feels like a loss.

Honestly, they are fortunate. The sooner we deal Rendon, the better the return. If you want him long term, you can sign him in the offseason.

If I could do it with the Senators, I can do it now.

Doolittle is only legit reliever in that entire pen.

Blow up the pen - yes.

Blow up the team - no, not with a soon to be 35-year old Max and a soon to be 31-year old Stras who's arm might be on borrowed time.

You just gave a perfectly good reason to blow up the team. Neither of them are going to be viable after next season. Rendon wants top dollar. You dont have a first baseman worth a damn, nor any young, cost controlled arms.

You blow it up now, you might be able  to compete in three years

The dumbass move was not trading Harper to the Astros or Dodgers.

It should have been pretty obvious he wasn’t coming back. Bad asset management will kill a franchise.

The GM you wanted to fire had a deal in place. Blame the owners that nixed it
