Nats fans are nice but I'm sure they were really annoyed at how I celebrated that Breggy Slam.

The results don't bother me.

But the way he looks when striking out is awful. He's 2 ft away from anything he swings at.

So bad

I would like to see Yordan get a swing. Maybe he hits one and gets something going.

He has such an ugly swing.

The fact he's made that work to this level is actually incredible
But wait, he has such a pure swing! it looks just like Ted Williams!
That's only true because Ted Williams has been dead for 17 years.

Tucker effing sucks. I don't know how that spastic hideous swing that looks like a child trying to hit a hummingbird with a sledgehammer put up those numbers at AAA. I feel like we have been catfished.

Exactly WHY was Tucker untouchable in trade talks? I don't see it, but I'm not a scout, so...

Let's go, Rondon. Get out of this with a 0. Give no hope.

We're up 7 in the WS and you are are dreaming out about 1 strike out in a Players 2nd AB in the inning.

Because he's our starter in RF next year and isn't making 13 million

Yea it's not like his really good first AB started a 4 run rally or anything
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

These people made their decision last year and now are praying they're right. It's weird.

Rondon is most surprising sub 4 era pitcher on staff... always seems to get hit hard

We kept offering him and all the clubs were like hell no, we want that Tyler White guy. So we kept saying Tucker was untouchable to drive up the price on him.

Tucker sucks. Let's not pretend he doesn't.

K enough about him.

Suck is a very strong word. I'm not pretending.

I'm also not calling for him to replace Springer or anything

The one bit of good news is that half the pitchers in our division are AAA quality.

Might need to platoon him with someone that can hit major league pitching though.

Craig Biggio first season: 50 games, 131 at bats, .211 BA, .603 OPS

George Springer first season: 114 strikeouts in 295 at-bats, .231 AVG

Good thing you're not a scout.

Goodness, Rondon has been hit hard by each batter this inning. Thankfully two of those three hit it right at an outfielder.

But I'm glad that he's challenging the nats in the zone and throwing strikes. I just hope we only see him with 5+ run leads
