This is true. The California league is notorious as being a hitters league.
And Michael Morse.
Why is that? Are the parks smaller? Pitching mound lower? Balls and bats more livelier? Is California really in Colorado? Serious though. What makes it a hitters league?
Can't wait to pull a NOD and bitch about the media pointing out holes in our lineup.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
How far away is Cole?
He was in A-/A+ last year, and probably has to repeat high A this year. I'd say 2-3 years most likely.
Remember yesterday when everyone was like "LOL no way they get Cole back?"
Of all news, THIS IS THE BEST NEWS.
It's a great deal for Washington. Oakland must have really soured on Cole for some reason.
We are not worthy of Mike Rizzo, honestly.
Here is a nice article that explains it some.
Looks like zero Nationals on Team USA for the WBC.
AND both Kimbrel and Medlen on it.... and Joe Torre isnt exactly known for babying his pitchers...

"Cole is my favorite draft pick (outside of Harper, obviously). The scouting reports on him have been very high for some time now and it seems like he has great upside. As I said back during the draft, a 1-2-3 trio of power arms in Strasburg, Zimmermann and Cole would be exciting to watch."
god i'm so smart.

i expect Cole to start the year in A+/Potomac, with a very good chance to move up to AA/Harrisburg soon after. Then boom he's in the AFL game, blowing people away and then he finds himself in the Nats rotation.
Lol @ Cole being our #4/#5 guy ... Lol @ baseball. Seriously, one big fat ass LOL.
Trust in Rizzo
Still gonna miss the big guy though. Sports Bog had a half-decent recap of Morse.
another great thing about A.J. Cole is that he was given his last name after the greatest arena of all-time in Cole Field House.
The only real negative (aside from getting slightly worse now, obv) is that dickweed Seattle fans get to enjoy the Beast.
true. but now we have a reason to watch Mariners games.
you guys have a lot of similarities with NOD
It always bothered me that he tried to strong arm that nickname when it's not his. And now I just realized that he can't get away with that in Seattle and that makes me happy.
oh shit you're right.
OMG WTF WHY DO YOU HATE TEH HARMLESS SEATTLE FANZ ALL CAPS SARCASM
Nats are having a presser this afternoon to discuss Soriano and the Morse trade.
