Corbin has actually been OK in his last few starts, but he has not done well against Atlanta.

you beat me to the start. 

Past couple of starts for Corbin - 15 IP, 60 batters faced, 13 hits, 3 walks, 16 Ks, 2 ER 1 HR. 

Fastball averaging 93-94 (both his 4 seam and his sinker), using almost exclusively his 2 fastballs and his slider. 10+ mph separation between fastballs and slider

Sorry.

I'm the one who had Corbin as the comeback player of the year, so I suppose it's my duty to go down with this sinking ship.

Double play here would do a lot to for Corbin's pitch count

look at my signature line :)

Your threads are nicer than mine and I take too long to get it going.  Just wanted to relieve you today.  I should claim before I start.

92-93 for the most part with the fastball.  a little faster on the Swanson K. Those looked pretty good.

I have the signature option turned off. I forgot you were the other one with hopes for Corbin.

I understand Will Smith had him totally blocked, but Ruiz is quite a nice pick up

I'm guessing that scouts are starting to pick up that, with 1st and 2nd on and a righty at bat, Ruiz and the Nats will run that pickoff play quite a bit.

Luis Garcia at SS is a miserable experience for everyone. Need to get him of there sooner than later.

see if there's a market for Cesar.  We still have Alcides and Ehire ( :couch: ) but maybe in the deals we can find a middle infielder.

Yadi doing his part.

However, the Nationals have scored 5 or more runs in only 5 of the last 25 games, so unfortunately a comeback win seems improbable.
