Davey is the only reason Strasburg turned into what he was in 2019.

If we had gotten this guy in 2016, we'd have more than one word series by now

Uhhhhhh

What I heard from inside the organization was that there were two disruptive forces that left and allowed the Parras and Sotos and other guys shine and build their own clubhouse culture

One of them, he said, was a “clubhouse lawyer”

Sadly, I think he meant Harper, who I once really liked, and Werth, who is one of my favorite players ever

Nobody badmouths the skipper ever.  But I never heard and of the recent managers messed up

I do believe that Martinez (who hates being called Davey), messed up the batting order in the first months

It’s hard to believe Harper was a clubhouse lawyer. He is not that bright. More likely Werth.

Right.  It was the first question asked at his first press conference and he said "Dave".

"Clubhouse lawyer" is often used as a pejorative term, "clubhouse" being used to mean "self-appointed".

Are you implying that Werth is bright?

It was clear from reading articles over the years that Werth was considered a leader in the clubhouse.nfor better or worse.  He helped lead the mutiny on Matt Williams. In contrast Harper never appeared to take any interest in anyone other than himself and his own performance. Basically just the opposite of a clubhouse lawyer.  Not a team leader. To me a clubhouse lawyer is someone trying to be a team leader.
