No, a baseball season is a marathon. If he's not ready by Opening Day, send him down. They have guys who can hold hte fort pretty well until Kieboom is ready. But given the chance, he'll be fine. He may not fully replace Rendon, but he'll be a very strong contributor to the team.

There's Taylor and there's Stevenson. Not a bad fourth and fifth outfielder.

Stevenson is replacement level, fine at the bottom of the roster but not someone we want starting 50 games. Taylor is an easy guy to root for and great on defense but he's past the age where you'd expect him to improve and his offense isn't good enough.

You are incorrect.

This isn't about whether or not Kieboom "should do fine". This is about March 26th.

This team is in trouble if Stevenson needs to be pressed into service as a starter. Soto-Robles-Eaton staying healthy is huge.

He is not bad as a 5th OF'er who comes in late in a game to maintain a lead, give guys a rest, etc. I'm OK with him fetching sunflower seeds for the vets, too.

On Nats Talk yesterday, Mike Wallace said he would rather have Stevenson than Brandon Nimmo.

Based on what? I'd take the guy who can hit a little.

Wallace and Wood spent years defending Danny Espinosa, too. And anyone who disagree with them were just "fans" who didnt understand baseball.
Mike Wallace is a smart baseball guy, but he and Phil always defend Nats players to the hilt. They have to. They're MASN cash checkers. Same with Carp and Santangelo. Still remember the night Santangelo referred to Espinosa as one of the best players in baseball.

I liked Espinosa, he had a pretty good upside, 20 HRs per year and great defense. If he had been playing short with Desmond at second we might have beat the Cardinals in 2012. Too bad he was too much of a head case to change his approach at the plate, always wanted to swing for power. Even Dusty Baker couldn't fix that guy.

Nats still assert Kieboom will be the 3B Opening Day. Maybe when he fields grounders we'll have time to put a spare virus mask over our eyes.
