What's the over/under on Corbin lowering his ERA under 6 to end the season?

6.31 era. Tommy Romero is consoling him in the dugout.

This was a meaningful series.  If Corbin, Robles, and the Nats could've knocked the Phillies out of the post season it would've been a successful season.  In Corbin's defense, it's hard to pitch a good game when your mind is on golf and warm weather.  Robles has no excuse for his base running decisions.

He probably sees himself as a Robin Hood type folk hero, like Ronnie Biggs

Vargas is cheaper

Vargas is making $100K and Cesar made $4 million. But Cesar is to be a free agent, so probably will not make even $4 million. Vargas will belong to the Nats, so he'll make the MLB minimum. But then Vargas has not hit before this season, and Hernandez has always been a respectable hitter.

A toss up.

How many enclosed stadiums are there? Are there enough that they MLB could reasonably schedule the final two series of the season in such stadiums, so that they could avoid problems with fall weather and the need to end the season on time?

The rain delay replay game reminds me just how hideous those vest uniforms the Bucs and various others wore back in the naughts (Reds too; can't remember who else).  These are almost as bad as the citrus vomit Astros jerseys

Without thinking hard, they are

- Miami
- Tampa
- Milwaukee
- Houston
- Arizona
- Dallas ("Texas Rangers", or, as Shirley Povich put it in 1971, "Some jerkwater town between Dallas and Fort Worth")

Any others?

Didn’t someone point out that Vargas is super-2?

They could do a covid bubble and have everyone play in Miami and Phoenix.  I certainly wouldn't watch but the field conditions would be adequate I guess.
