Team is 11th out of 30 in OPS.   And 28th of 30 in ERA, so not dead last.

No asterisks
redemption. Cleansing. And they lost the * when they won with Dusty.

They deserve the exact same respect for an unpenalized team as the Black Sox would’ve if they won the 1922 World Series, which looks like a big goose egg.

Basically talking amongst yourselves and keeping your head down with nobody can actually go to games right after you’ve been found out and then going on with things, or without punishment commensurate with what was done especially with historical precedent to a degree? 

I don’t see how that equates to redemption or something that parents want to showcase their kids and saying hey, do it this way, it’ll work out because people will get beyond a few news cycles and forget, but they’ll remember pieces of metal later on, so it’s totally worth it.

The Nats need to sign any free agent who will have them.  No reason to handicap themselves.

No, shreds are dignity are still shreds of dignity, and the Nats need shreds like that

we already broke the precedent of signing an Astro in 2020 when we signed Will Harris, so it's not like it'd be breaking ground. But if you don't consider it sunshiney to hope to sign one of the best hitting outfielders in baseball, then post about who would bring you sunshine to sign.

Of course, we can dream of Soto if we are going top end free agent.

credits Doo with helping Gore create more of the appearance of rise on his fastball. IF his command steps up a bit, then Gore could really breakout this year.  Sunshine!

saw earlier that Gallo and Winker are at career OPS highs. And of course Williams is heading for the all-star game and Cy Young award.

Rizzo you magnificent bastard.
