Bats have been chilled, which is too bad because the pitching the past couple of nights has not been bad.

A run! Alu knocks in next year's 1st baseman Dom Smith after his double.

I was worried that CJ would come up with 2 runners on. Can't have so many opportunities.

I don't know if there was a camera on Alu. Did he stop and go or just keep going around 2nd?

So, Gus Triandos, Rick Dempsey, Chris Hoiles . . . is Rutschman already the O's best catcher since the Os moved from St Louis?

Wieters. Elrod hendricks and Andy Etchebarren don't make the list.

Triandos, Wieters, Hoiles, and Dempsey.

Corbin for loss # 15. I predicted a 20 loss season. He can’t do anything right. As long as he is in the rotation we will not contend for a playoff spot.

Rutschman is 5th in fWAR(10.1), behind Hoiles (24.8) Dempsey (22.8) Wieters (18.4) and Triandos (17). He's played 263 games as C.  dempsey played 1245, the others no less than 882 (Wieters). Give him 2 years to pass Triandos and Wieters.

so we'll basically know going into next season if the Nats intend to compete based on whether or not Corbin is still in the rotation.

well, there's no way he's not starting the season in the rotation. Can't call Paulie Walnuts to take care of our problem anymore.

So the Nats made it 2-1 and then Corbin gave up a couple more runs?

yes. They brought in a lefty, so they PH Kieboom, then moved Every Day Every Play Every Year over to 2nd.
