Robles giveth, Robles taketh away. How hard is it to hit a cutoff man?

Or, sure, running it in and handing it to him is an option, too. Sandlot style.

The Robles on The Basepaths theme song:



You just need to have Blind Faith in him that it'll work out.

MLBTR speculated the Phillies could pick him up and put him inbetween Schwarber and Castellanos in their OF.

why? we aren't contending with the Phillies for a wild card spot and any help he gives them worsens their draft choice.  Our competition is the As, Royals, and Reds.

Right after he ran through second base on the should-have been error on the 2nd baseman, and then got easily tagged out, I said to myself that if I was Davey I would bench him immediately and option him to AAA right after the game.  This was of course after saying the same thing after he swipped his bat at the live ball on the ground over the weekend against the Brewers.  He's simply stupid.

Least of Rizzo's worries.  With a new owner probably next year he needs to show something is getting better.

There is nothing between now and when the new owners come onboard that will show that.

To be honest, Im okay with Rizzo leaving. It pretty obvious that the Nats need a massive overhaul.

I still would rather be watching Andrew Stevenson than Robles. Less errors and stupid baserunning.

I no longer think Robles has a high ceiling. At least not in DC.

Re-thought this. Maybe they can package Robles with a reliever or two (Carl Edwards Jr?) and get a guy like Rojas, Ethan Wilson, or Hans Crouse
