Nats have literally two people that can beat you. Our two aces have failed to do a damn thing about it so far. Two hitters

Well we've seen that's obviously not true. Wasn't true for their last series either.


Oh so Soto didnt beat us last night? And Rendon so far tonight? That's where the danger is

He was going to swing at that last pitch no matter where it was.

You said "literally " they only have two hitters that can beat you. Flat out not true.

Soto is really good.

And he knows it. This is going to sound kind of silly, but he reminds me of Anderson Silva back when he was untouchable and let everyone know it.


The thing is, in baseball, more often than not you can be hot for a short term.. And then to never be seen again. We won't find out for years to come, but it's more likely than not that he's going to fade into irrelevance. Not saying that will happen, but just from history

Maddux was the worst at that. And they'd let him get away with it.

Fox glad they had the delay and dump button.


What'd I miss


Eaton cussing up a storm on his popup.


I love you, btw. Can we be friends again, at least until the next time we piss each other off?


You're obviously not on ignore yet.

We have yet to send a bow tie to Soto yet
Don't hit him but just let him know to think twice about leaning over that outside corner

Going on record that now wouldn't be a terrible time to try to take a base, unlike in the first.

1) was altuve not hustling?

2) that error was big for pitch count reasons.

Everything about this is wrong.

He has 1150 MLB PAs and these are the 10 guys his career most resembles through this age:

Tony Conigliaro
Mickey Mantle
Frank Robinson
Bryce Harper
Mike Trout
Ken Griffey Jr.
Mel Ott
Vada Pinson
Al Kaline
Cesar Cedeno

You might have heard of some of them. Only reason Conigliaro isn't as known is because he took a fastball to the face and it ruined his career. Injury or drugs are about the only things that would stop Soto from being a superstar.

Catcher pulling his glove 4-6 inches isn't helping Strasburg.

There's an art to framing. That's not it.

He had 30+ HRs and 100+ RBIs during the regular season. It isn't like he just got hot in the post season.
