Zack Wheeler = Stephen Strasburg
Matt Harvey = Jordan Zimmermann
Yeah, so let me be the fourth Nats fan here to say...erm, not all that impressed with Zach Wheeler. Not yet at least. Not saying he doesn't have a lot of potential, but still a few bugs in the system.
This is the second time in as many days that a ball that bounced above The Line back into play has been treated as an automatic double. I just pulled down the 2013 Official MLB rules to see what they say. I say if it bounces back in play, then it is in play and the runner advances at his own risk.
Aardsma comes in relief of Wheeler, and Carpenter and Santangelo note his last name alphabetically, wondering if the next guy would be Abad, followed by Abercrombie. I assume they were only referring to active pitchers, because there's a guy named Aaron (actually two of them) who led the alphabetical list for a long, long time.
For instance, they state that the railings around the dugout and camera wells are in play, but those are always in foul territory so what difference does that make?
A man has got to know his limitations.
I always forget that Andrelton Simmons was actually a draftee, not an international free agent.
Not that it's a particular virtue, but the radio guys stay on baseball.
why? he's doing exactly what he did in the minors. only the defensive quality is the real surprise
I can see how a guy like this would generate output like a metronome.
...until Friday, I didn't know he was still in baseball.
And he's having a career year. On pace for career highs in OBP, runs, home runs, walks and OPS+.
Yeah, Milone and Westbrook are not sharp today, plus the warmer than normal weather today is making the ball carry well.
Other players still in the game :
We have been told that Puig can't be an All-Star because he won't be able to maintain his early pace. He's at .434/.467/.707. Seems like if he maintains this approximate pace right up to the selection, he should be in.
Donaldson really has to be an All Star.
looking at the AL third baseman and I'm seeing a problem....
Wait, "possibly the greatest era for 3b since the mid-70's" is a problem?
It's a problem if you want Donaldson to be in the all star game. Influx of talent is never a problem for fans.
That was a better argument before they expanded the All-Star rosters. I doubt that the other contenders for the last roster position will have such stellar credentials that Puig's historic start should be ignored. Could look different when it gets down to brass tacks, I suppose, but I doubt it'd be much of a snub to whoever is left off in favor of Puig.
guess the umps want to get this game done before nightfall
