Interesting how they slide Schwarber back to 6th against the lefty.  Not a great power hitting line up today, but I think maybe good for stringing things together.

I think its time to admit Soto is a bad base runner

only way he makes that is if he never slows or hesitates. He has Acuna envy

He also was taking a big lead and then heading back to first base with every pitch as he was fooled by Bumgarner.

Someone said he'd been up in the bullpen several times in the past few days, though I don't remember seeing him.

I had the same question. Turns out he was in two games for the Nats last September, including one start. Not only that, I started both GDTs and specifically mentioned him, but apparently completely forgot about him thereafter.

He had a few spring starts too iirc

That commercial welcome back with Stras should have him with an IV and a sling

dave knew that's what they'd be expecting.  Thought he could catch them off guard with Espino.

That's a heck of a play end-to-end by Robles.  That's how you do it.

So, I would be pleased if Espino gives us 4 innings. No way you let him face the top of the order again
