Kid’s been displaying the tools scouts raved about this week.

I just laughed at the Moustakis out stretching a single against him last night.  It was like "where did that throw come from?"

Missed today’s game but just watched the highlights. Robles’ HR. Wow.

Nats would be wise to flip Eaton and Robles in the lineup.

Why? Robles gets on base less than both Eaton and Turner (OBP .330).

Robles hasn't been Acuna, but he's had a pretty solid rookie season showing off why he was a top rated 5 tool prospect.  .255   .328   .756 with 26 SBs and 17 HRs isn't too shabby.  Plus the defense!

And, he's getting better as the season goes on:

Last 30: .289   .359   .439
Last 15: .315   .373   .481
Last 7: .435   .500   .565

Would really like to see him finish off with a little dinger tear so he's 20/20.

Turner and Eaton are providing nothing at the top of the lineup. I’d like to see what Robles could do. Maybe it kickstarts the offense.

Or maybe it took him two months to recover from the last time we shuffled him so maybe we should just leave him the freak alone.

I’ll bite. What would be your definition of “something?”

multiple-run leadoff homers will satisfy him ;)
