Zimm may be better with a year to rest his body.   Or if the thought was he just had one year left, then why not go out on a high note, instead of this weird, anti-climatic season.

Hard to think of a better high note than last year.

Playing ball in front of fans after getting a title and feeling healthy again figures to be right up there

Guessing Voth goes to the rotation and Fedde to the pen. 

Bullpen will be longer at the start of the year. I also think the 30 man helps Bonifacio as a PR

Always a Nat, and favorite, in my book.

Did the Nats replace Zim and Ross on the 60 man roster?

When I saw this on MLBTR, I had completely forgot that he had signed with the Nats. By the way, his parents opted out on the extra "L"; it's Welington.

Fun note: Trea Turner is the longest tenured non-pitcher on the team.

Too bad.  I was looking forward to hearing Abba when he was brought in.

OK.  I'll guess they don't want him to miss 2 years at this stage.  Is the DR academy open for those down there not on the 60 man?

I know what you're saying, but it'd actually be even more than that.  He's already (other than 3 games last year) missed two full years.  The last game he played in Hagerstown was two years ago today (7/19/18).  So if they didn't add him to the 60 this year, it'd be 32-33 months next April.

i talked to a friend who has a kid in the minors today, he said the plan is for an instructional league to begin in the fall in Florida for the minor leaguers not in the 60 man camps.

all this "in Florida" and "in Arizona" stuff isn't going to be easy.  They would have a better chance of getting games in in Cuba.
