Smithian is beginning to persuade me that the Nats ought to bring up Andrew Stevenson. I'd take him over Cruz, though, since Cruz seems to be finished. Yes, yes, the Nats spent money on Cruz, but that does not require them to put him in the lineup day now. Maybe they hoped to flip him, but is there a chance that a team will trade for a 42 year old DH hitting a consistent .235 this year? After the trade deadline, let Cruz retire. At least Stevenson can pinch-run sometimes, or play OF in place of Thomas or Robles.

(Stevenson is hitting .293 in Rochester)
Someone will 100% take Cruz off our hands. Limited return, but an easy move.

And Stevenson isn’t going to win games with his bat or glove. He also won’t lose a game with errors or baserunning mistakes.

Also, nice before a guy with good contact skills in Ruiz.

Keibert Ruiz is going to end up a 2 WAR player this year. Going to be so good for so long.

.9 WAR at Baseball Ref and 1.0 WAR at Fangraphs. A sound pickup. (Better than Trea? Well, KB will be with the Nats for a few more seasons. He will only get better. But Trea is great.)

also, because he's a catcher, he's compiling that taking a quarter of the games off.

Need a dp after the pop

Melancon has worse stats than our bullpen A, but he gets by.

One inning, Finnegan. Just one-two-three outs.

This mound visit was too long. Finnegan is going to be overthinking things. Let's hope it doesn't backfire.

No 19 game losing streaks! (See the 1959 team for that misery)
