Not quite sure why we're going with 'Gselling the Drama' again in a game where there'll be no Gsellman in the drama - or even on the 25-man roster for that matter.


NIMMO - RF
LAGARES - CF
CABRERA - 2B
FLORES - 3B
SMITH - 1B
d'ARNAUD - C
ROSARIO - SS
REYNOLDS - LF
MILONE - P

I'd prefer to see Wilmer at 2nd and Cabrera at 3rd





KENDRICK - 2B
DIFO - SS
RENDON - 3B
ZIMMERMAN - 1B
WIETERS - C
TAYLOR - CF
DE AZA - LF
BAUTISTA - RF
FEDDE - P


Erick Fedde (rhymes with Freddie) -- RHP, 6' 4" / 180 -- was the Nats 1st round pick (18th overall) in 2014 out of UNLV despite them knowing in advance that he needed TJ surgery.
But the Nats haven't been shy about drafting pre-injured players in recent years so his pro start was delayed until 2015 with only 64 IP and then another 121 in 2016
This season, in addition to a bunch of relief outings, he's made 7 AA starts, 6 AAA starts, and 2 ML starts [one in June, one back on August 6th -- 9.1 IP, 11 RA on 18 hits + 6 BBs]
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Reverse-psychology by using the thread title from the previous day's defeat so far working. Brilliant!

Autofill is a killer. Just now I tried to edit it with my thumbs from the passenger seat and I instead deleted the post.

Anyhow, I wonder when was the last time in MLB history that one Wilmer has grounded out to another.

Robles just pitched 3 innings the other day. Is Terry trying to stretch him out to be a starter?

Nimmo has a tendency to be patient to a fault.
Not suggesting he should actively seek to change his approach especially since his ML ABs have been few and far between, but I wouldn't mind seeing him get gradually more aggressive over
these final six weeks as he's pretty much going to be in the lineup every day.

And today he faced two batters.
Just circumstances.

Yeah you could pretty much could have predicted the bottom of the inning based on how the top ended, letting a gassed Fedde off the hook while Terry takes the express to Matchup City and dArnaud tries to throw out a guy stealing center field.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Cuz after all, he's my Seawald



When Manfred turns his attention to game pace this winter (with or without the player side input) these mid-inning pitching changes should be the first target.
I know that the relievers chapter of the union still insists that the bullpen mounds aren't the same as the field mound and therefore they need their additional eight warmups but, y'know what, then
make those bullpen mounds up to par so it's not a two minute break each time there's a pitching switch. And the other argument is about lost commercial time but, unlike the between innings
breaks, these stoppages aren't pre-known and contracted for. Besides, it'll still take the better part of a minute to make the swap and I'm sure the telecasts can get creative with ads during the change.

That bottom 6th just had an additional four minutes of dead time over and above the already built-in dead time because Terry used three pitchers.

We're going to lose this one and blow out every arm in the bullpen with a 2nd game to play still.

I always thought that you had to at least make believe you were trying to get out the way of a pitch before it hit you.

Curious what our plan for the ninth is.

I think Nimmo is currently on the productive-every-other-game plan.

Gary kept insisting that you sometimes see that called but I'm thinking; "When?!?"
Most of the time you couldn't get a call even when the Utleys and Biggios of the world were actively sticking various limbs directly into the path of the pitch.
