At a cetain point, you need to shut Gray down. This is getting ridiculous.

I have an Apple ID, but I think I'll skip this one.  I can't imagine jumping through any additional hoops to watch this shower of crap.

For the stats geeks: now that the pesky Soto and Bell are gone, does anyone think the entire Nationals roster can compile a negative WAR for the rest of the season?

Honestly the Apple broadcast is pretty good. I like the stats they post on screen after each pitch.

Time to shut down Gray? He’s still newer to pitching than most guys his age. Something is off.

If Yadiel is DHing, good chance he ends up positive. Robles has played decently as of late. Luis Garcia, with fewer errors, is probably okay. Ruiz will be positive.

Plus Lane Thomas is .6 War. There are several relievers who stand between .4 and .8 WAR. That's all the Nats above 0.0. Riley Adams is 0.0. All the others are negative, at least according to Baseball Ref.

He already has. This is not an MLB quality team.

I like the whole look of their graphics. The commentators not as much.

Dan Baker was the PA announcer when I would go to games as a kid at the Vet. So he ain’t no spring chicken.

I mean to a different coaching staff. After a nice June, this dude has imploded.

Doesn't look good for Rochester against Columbus, Cleveland's AAA team. Losing 6 - 1. Have lost 14 in a row, which is pressing toward the bizarre 1959 Senators' 19-game losing streak. The Old Nats had a powerful lineup, with Killebrew, Lemon, Allison, and Sievers, plus Pascual and Ramos pitching. Rochester has an honestly bad team.

Only interesting bit is that Abrams is leading off.

Do we think our minor league coaches are better?

Caught a bit of yesterday afternoon’s game. They don’t look very good for sure.
