Bring up Darren Baker. DFA Nunez. Baker is not as fast in a stright-line as Nunez, but baseball is not track and field. Baker is a good baserunner.
I would say Nunez has a very good chance at being DFAed after making an azz out of himself, the 3rd base coach, and the entire organization after that dumb base running mistake. If he doesn’t know what “SEE THE BALL DOWN” means at this stage of his career, he should be DFAed. Bye-bye! 👋🏻👋🏻

Davey said in the postgame that Nunez was running on contact and wrote it off as just being unlucky.

Really???????? if that’s true, Davey should be fired.

In that situation the 3rd base coach reiterates to the runner, “SEE THE BALL DOWN”! Which means, go if you see the batted ball hit the ground. Anything hit in the air or on a line (line-drive) you are moving back to the base.

If Davey really did say that in the postgame press conference he should be fired and it would explain why this team is horrendous with fundamentals and their knowledge of the game.

Maybe plan holders can give ticket reps a similar explanation for why they’re not re-upping. “I meant to keep throwing time and money at this team, but Oopsie, that’s just the way it goes sometimes.”

Davey is just covering for his player.

If he was covering for his player he should have said, “it was a bad mistake that we will talk about and fix immediately “. If Davey said, “the kid was instructed to go on contact”, he should be fired.

I dont think you understand what "covering" means.

If thats how your friends cover for you, then your friends are blue falcons.

Slate the voice of common sense. A manager will almost never criticize a player -- in public -- for a brainless play.

DFA Nunez and bring up a player who can be useful from the bench. Likewise, get rid of Jordan Weems. The Nats are running as they try to carry Rainey and Weems...dead weight.

Yep. If a manager is criticizing a player, then that player is a star or that player has already been removed from the roster.

Still would rather see Lipscomb play in Triple A. Preferably at shortstop.

That’s not covering for the player, that’s admitting we’re all a bunch of dumb azzes on this side of the field so don’t single him out.
With the way our guys get picked off the bases, throw to the wrong bag, and pitchers that give up huge meaningful runs on 0-2 counts with 2 twos, I truly believe our coaching staff may have told the kid to go on contract. Our club is young and needs a manager in place that is strong on fundamentals. Maybe it’s time for Davey to go.
