Chalk another loss for the Nationals on their bullpen.

Yup. Don't trust anyone in there at the moment. Unless Rizzo makes a move it's gonna be a wasted season, no way we can compete when games get close in Sept/August.

Yeah...they have to do something because opposing teams will be doing everything they can to get to the bullpen (ie running pitch counts up) and build confidence in the later innings. There is nothing worse than watching your bullpen blow up in the playoffs...watching opposing teams comeback. I can just hear the DC media sports talk now.

But Bullpen can be an easy fix if your willing to give up some prospects....Miller and chapman both got traded late and were pivotal pieces for their clubs.

It's official: Dusty Baker's bullpen is a nightmare for Nationals - Washington Nationals- ESPN

"If a dumpster fire and a train wreck had a baby, itd be the Washington Nationals' bullpen."

Yup, didn't want to project anything but he was looking at minimum like a steady everyday player.

Either Koda Glover needs to become Kenley Jensen over night, or we will be in serious trouble, that bullpen might as well have you or I in it, and I played 1B/C when I played to give an idea of my arm.

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.

Five theories on why Buster Posey avoided the Bryce Harper-Hunter Strickland brawl - CBSSports.com

Bryce did the right thing...so petty by Strickland. Bryce should have gotten 2 games at the most

It is what it is. Hopefully the appeal will lower it, but I ain't holding my breath. What do you expect Harper to do, the bombs happened 3 years ago and the f'n Giants won the Series that year. Terrible reason to throw at someone.

Also I gained some respect for Posey on that one, good on him for staying out of it. He probably wanted no part of it to start with.

Re: MLB 2017 Thread

Bryce Harper of Washington Nationals has suspension reduced to three games

3 games is a fair deal for me. The way media was talking after it happened I expected 6-7.

Yikes. Nats bullpen.

And after the game glover said he hurt his back before the game and didn't say anything to the team. Now it's worse. Doh! Not too bright there

I'm just sitting here like,"when has that ever worked out for any player ever?" Idiotic move by Glover there, cost us the game and probably cost him some future games. Back injuries suck.

Smile Re: MLB 2017 Thread

Hey, folks. A new webpage that makes following all-things-Nats simpler can be seen at:

NationalsDomains.com



Fee free and ad free... courtesy of a fellow Nats fan (... that would be me).

I make no money from this in any way, period. Just got tired of keeping all these tabs and bookmarks, and found a way to use a third-party aggregator to put it all in one place. Realized after I built it that I could actually share it, and so I purchased a URL to make it easier to remember.

Includes feeds from Federal Baseball and other similar sites, the major newspapers, MASN, baseball-reference, and the latest Nationals uploads to YouTube, as well as the most current tweets.

Hope you find it convenient and useful. If you do, spread the word please.

Thanks for the tip, spook1320! You certainly seem like a trustworthy fellow based on our substantial history so I'll take that into consideration.
