Now they can shut him down a week earlier!
You drug it out of me
This time it counts.
Isn't this the guy who cried because Earl Weaver threw his computer printouts in the trash? The guy who sold computers for a while? The guy who said things like "favorable chance derivation"?
Their worst defender is probably Jayson Werth -- who's, at the very worst, average.
Span, Harper and LaRoche are legitimately top-5 defenders, the rest of the IF is much closer to average than top-5.
Davey Johnson may talk colloquially, but he ain't no dummy.
Behind the plate, Ramos could be top-5, but Suzuki isn't.
I can tell you that, speaking just in terms of watching him play on a daily basis, his range is seemingly undiminished from his defensive peak -- it's only his arm that is problematic.
Am I crazy in thinking they used to show Arm rating broken out?
I've read speculation that Zimmerman's throwing problems are basically just the yips. To those who watch him regularly, does that ring true?
Haven't read any comments, but has anyone pointed out yet that the Nats shutdown Strasburg last year, and how terrible that was.
Not only that, but they had no valid basis for making the decision. It was completely CRAAAZZZY! And it cost them a virtually certain world championship. Worst. Decision. Ever.
Why, I think it's a travesty that Mike Rizzo hasn't been fired yet for his inexcusable decision
His throwing isn't a problem when he has to gun it (generally). It's when he has a few extra beats to make a throw that his footwork gets out of sync. And then the throws tend to sail on him.
 Bingo. This is almost certainly the best defensive team in the majors. Their worst defender is probably Jayson Werth -- who's, at the very worst, average. At every other position they probably have a top 5 defender.
