The ball comes at you faster at 3B.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Definitely. An incredibly difficult position to play. I just disagree that you need to be a brain surgeon to play there.

Martinez this morning on 106.7: The 3B job is Kieboom's to lose ( yeah well, what else is he gonna say).
Says his glove is not a problem right now. Footwork and throwing are the issues.

If you look at Kieboom's error history in the minors at 2B and SS, it's hard to imagine the guy being ready to be the everyday 3B by Opening Day. Hope I'm wrong.

Martinez said Strasburg walked into his office in Sept '18 and said he wanted to shut it down for the rest of that season. Told Davey his velocity was down, but he wasnt injured or anything, and physically he felt fine.
Martinez told him NO WAY you aint shuttin jack down.

Rizzo will probably give Kieboom a couple months to get his shit together, about four times longer than the fans will like.

Nice story about Martinez and Strasburg. If that's the whole story it's interesting that Stras didn't run to Rizzo or Lerner to complain. That was the same time frame when the bullpen was in open revolt against Martinez.

Or not. Remember, Cabrera, Kendrick, and Castro can all play 3B, and if Kieboom goes to Fresno for about a month or so then can gain an extra year of control.

He needs to work on his defense at 3B. The ball comes at you faster than it does at shortstop.

Probably Cabrera and some Castro. Kendrick was terrible at second, he'd be worse at third. Castro has 366 career innings at third, OK as a fill in but not the guy you look for going into the season.

Good point about keeping Kieboom down until early May to gain a service year.

Brooks Robinson and Craig Nettles were talking about playing 3B and how they both hated it when Frank Howard hit. They said that more than any hitter they feared Big Frank.
And despite K'ing Hondo in the '71 All Star Game, Tom Seaver said he was just relieved that Frank didn't hit the ball his way and maybe take his head off.

Not understanding why The Nats dont just put Kieboom at 2B and let the vets fight it out at 3B. That way Kieboom doesnt have the pressure to replace Rendon, and he can also play a position that's less taxing.

I expect we'll see a lot of shuffling the pieces around by Martinez trying to find a combination that works. I'm not sure if Rendon will be worth all that money over the length of the contract but for 2020 it could get ugly without him.

"Ya know, I feel fine, and physically I'm A-Ok and I don't have any injuries. But since the velocity is down on my fastball, I wanna shut it down for the rest of the season".

In contrast, last year Turner played with a broken finger for most of the season, and Aaron Barrett went thru Hell to make it back. All of which casts the Strasburg of 2018 into an incredibly bad light. Hopefully last season has showed that Stras really has grown up.
