hey, he broke in as a third baseman. Maybe somebody should tell Kieboom to train with him?

Broke in?  Broke in?  Dude won 2 MVPs while playing 3B!  Maybe Kieboom just needs to drink a case of Yuengling nightly and he'll be a .340-hitting extra-base hit machine.  (Or if he decides to limit it to team flights, Wade Boggs is also an acceptable outcome; either way, Kieboom needs to drink more.  A lot more.)

Incredible that he moved back across the diamond in 2012 & 13 after 3 year as a 1B and DH.  You just don't pick up a more difficult defensive position like that at age 29. 

Yes, Kieboom needs to drink more and put on 40-60 pounds (miggy listed at 249).

Used to drink at CCSP when the Marlins were in town ~15 year ago.

FredNats lineup should be pretty solid.

but it is good to see some progress.  Robles hit a ball hard and took a walk.  I'm thinking that he may have a shot at becoming a major leaguer when he's 25 or so. Corbin, on the other hand, I don't know why a guy his age sticks around.  He must have a Jacoby Ellsbury-type contract where he gets paid only if he doesn't retire.

Pleasant change from last year.

There are a few older guys who are off to good starts, but the teams aren't overloaded with guys too old for their leagues.

From a quick glance at Rochester's stats:

- Cavalli in a trough

- Clippard drops ERA to 5.11

- Garcia, Tres B., Nick Banks (?) hitting well

- Donavan Casey bumping along at .230.

IS there a handy listing of players who must be added to the 40 man roster or exposed to Rule 5 at the end of the year?  I think both Irvin and Theophile are in that boat.

Wilmington dropped both games in yesterday's double-header, both shutouts. Fell a half-game into 4th place, at 14 - 14, about 2.5 games behind the Yankee affiliate Hudson Valley. That's in the second half of the season. Finished the first half in second place, 35 - 30.

Harrisburg manager Tripp Kiester has been fired.

https://thenatsreport.com/09/20/2022/quicknotes/quick-notes-nationals-parted-ways-with-their-double-a-manager-tripp-keister-per-sources/

He's been with the org a long time - the 11 years the article cites sounds right to me.

I'm sure Watson will replace him with someone from that noted player development machine and perennial contender in Arizona, though, so that's good news.
