Saw that the league is considering 7 inning games for Doubleheaders, either for 1 or both games. Hear ya on the fake noise, I bet listening to games in the car would be the best experience. This season is a trip.

Seven innings sounds crazy but this is the year for crazy ideas, have some fun and then keep what works.

There was some chatter about the Nats playing the Blue Jays this weekend. That was a great idea, wish it was happening. No extra travel, we'd have games to watch, and the Phillies and Marlins can play double headers to make up for the postponed games.

Soto is back and rosters drop from 30 to 28. The Talk Nats blog has a good article speculating on which players might get dropped.

I saw an interview with Martinez over the weekend that got me thinking. Martinez spoke of balancing playing time to keep the bench guys fresh. In a short season with a DH I don't agree with that approach. I'd use more of a playoff rotation, shorten up the bench and play to win every game.

Braves ace Soroka out for the season with torn achilles. Braves take a HUGE blow.

Nats have 55 days to play 53 games in a schedule heavy with backtobacks, west coast trips. Next week it's 10 away games in 10 days, with 7 coming against Mets & Braves. Gotta stay fresh. Even tho it's a 60 game reg season, Davey needs to resist the urge he had in 2018 to wear guys out. He did a great job last season keeping vets like Kendricks fresh for the playoffs.

I'd agree with a 25 man roster, but 28-30 players is too many to worry about getting them playing time. Particularly with a DH and three batter rule for relievers. We don't need as many players per game and we can't waste starts on guys at the bottom.

It's 28 for the rest of the year, according to Ken Rosenthal.
