    Not to pile on the guy, but his postgame interview was a look inside the mind of someone who can't come to grips with reality right now:

    He didn't even look good in Spring. I think that was just one or two posters here trying to see things that weren't there.

    Doubtful. Hader's their best reliever by far so he's going to come in the most high leverage situations. Sometimes that'll be in the 6th or 7th, sometimes it'll be in the 8th or 9th... either way it kinda prevents Barnes from ever getting a foothold on the role.

    Yep, pretty inexplicable. I don't mind including Torreyes but he can easily slot over to 2B instead of Tyler Wade. Wade may be the very worst hitter in MLB right now, no reason for him to be in the lineup while Andujar sits.

    Yeah, Acuna side wins by a good margin
  6. Is Stroman worth a #1 waiver?

    What's the league size/settings? Important to include that information. But I'd definitely rather have Stroman than Wacha or Gausman... in any format. Just a matter of how much the #1 waiver is worth in your format/league size.

    Golden Sombrero. Not sure he made contact all night.

    Maeda is atrocious. Tough to watch at this point.

    Part of the deal when you draft him. You're signing up for 120-130 IP of great ratios, anything more would be a surprise (and yes I own him, so I'm not trying to sound preachy or like I'm talking down here). Good news is it sounds pretty minor and he shouldn't miss more than a couple of starts this time around.

    Yeesh, Maeda looks awful

    The aspect of it that looked bad was how he just walked right into the dugout with no hesitation. Before the trainers could even get out to him. Almost like he knew something was seriously wrong.

    Given how vital a role bullpens play in postseason baseball nowadays, how on earth can the Nats expect to make a deep October run with their bullpen as currently constructed? They need to add 2-3 good relievers at a minimum before the deadline.

    Fair enough. I shouldn't have said everyone.

    Jacoby Ellsbury has to be on that list. Supposedly just tweaked his hamstring but as we know with Cargo his recuperation abilities aren't on par with most professional athletes. Would expect to see him sometime early next week. Edit: Just saw some chatter about it being a legitimate hamstring strain. Welp. At least he didn't cost much.

    I think everyone understands the way they're using Hader. But due to his ability to throw 2+ innings whenever he does come in, unless he runs an abnormally high pitch count or gets hit around a bit, he's likely going to stay out there (after going through the heart of the order) to finish the game as well. At least until Knebel comes back.
