From what I've seen watchin the replay of the Cards game tonight. The 23rd, 24th, and 25th guys have just sat down assured of making the 25 man roster due to all of the injuries. Absolutly no hustle by anyone who took the field !
The only one who seemed to get a bad rap was Gio due to a HP umpire that acted as if he were trying to get Gio to make a remark about his strike zone, which was atrocious, so he could throw Gonzalez out of the game. Gio just kept looking toward the Nats dugout once an awhile, but kept his cool.
GO NATS !!!
Hello all, alive and well here in Fredericksburg with the 4 horses, hubby and standard poodle.
I am very concerned about this team and the start it will have. I am dismayed that Morse is still out of commission. He needs to keep hitting to keep sharp by his own admission; When he was in SP last year he was terrific; then came the first 6 weeks of major league play and he was lost.La Roche - he seems like an entire loss. Is he a Johnson replacement for first base? Is it first base that gobbles up our players? Whats the freakin deal?Other than Zimmermann our pitchers, the ones touted to be such a fantastic starting 4, 5, or 6, stink! Watching these 12-3. 10-1 or whatever shelacking they take and we are supposed to believe that they can just turn it around when the lights come on?
Not buying it! Not one bit!
These mounting injuries are very worrysome. I'm beginning to think that just as we were stating to think that the stars were aligning for us, we are going to be smacked in the face with a brutal year. Our training staff has a track record of ineffectiveness, but LaRoche takes the top honor for "most brittle acquisition." What a waste he has been.
Hya eddie, Ya typed;"Bravo to Gio for not taking the bait."
Yah, it was real bad for him that day. He was throwing to inside and outside corners, keeping the ball down, but to no avail. The only pitch it seemed Gio had a chance of being called a strike was a ball up and over. Now we all know what happens when ya present that to a ML batter at the plate. Hence, he never found out if the ump woulda called it a strike. ;~(
