The DeRosa walk was huge. The Morse HR would have meant nothing if DeRosa hadn't walk ahead of him.
yeah props to derosa for that professional at bat
Anyone else not really digging the evil Mark DeRosa? (him with a goatee)
[terpito] He's pretty awful, but that Flores is good [/terpito]
p.s. how much does it suck that we have an off day today.
nationals.com has 20% off savings off of thousands of items (including tons of jerseys) today. get some nats swag and show your natitude.
talking nats on the fan right now.
they say analysts are saying the nats can win with this current roster, but they need a catcher.
Just think at the beginning of the year we had a surplus of catchers. We even traded Derek Norris because we were solid at catcher. As long as we don't give away the farm to get a catcher.
we wouldn't have had this problem if ramos didn't get hurt. he's our guy and it's clear we miss him soooooooooooo bad. flores is backup, but is having a terrible year. the only thing he can do is block passed balls/wild pitches and he came up with the slogan "Washington!"
solano/leon have had some big hits, but they both have allowed some passed balls and haven't made a difference with throwing out base stealers.
we need to go outside the system to get one.
ross detwiler coming up on the fan in a few minutes
I'd be surprised if this happened. Don't think they want to mess with the synergy. Jesus saves...
I respect Flores for his handling of the staff, blocking balls, and the exceptional amount of pounding/bad luck he has taken this year- but the position simply has to be upgraded.
We cant go into the playoffs with a Catcher with a .580 OPS who also cant throw anyone out. Sorry.
exactly. such a black hole in our line-up and it's not like he's the best defensive catcher in all of baseball.
Don't disagree with either of you. He's horrible. But they are family. And you never go against the family...
they can still be family. but he can go back to being the backup that plays once a week.
Kelly Shoppach has a pet hedgehog named Oliver Rainbow Sprinkles. Rizzo, get it done!
Okay, I'll make the call to Rizzo...

And doesn't Magic 8-ball have lotsa pull with Rizzo, too?
