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.


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

Bowden has an article in the Athletic this morning pushing for universal DH. He says that both the owners and players want it but that the owners feel that the players want it more so they are using the rule change as a negotiating point. This keeps all of the NL teams in limbo as the GMs don't know whether to sign starters who can go deep into games or big hitters who can't field. I hate the DH but if it is going to happen Manfred should force a vote now so that the Nats and the rest of the NL is on the same footing as the AL teams.

In relation to this, Marcell Ozuna must be smoking weed. Dude fired his agent a few days ago because he hasnt gotten any decent offers yet. #1, most owners have probably put big dollar FA pursuits on hold until they get a clearer sign about what (if any) attendance will be like next year. And #2, if he was smart, he'd wait for confirmation that the DH will be in place for '21 -- in that way, his list of suitors can only go up, because I can imagine clubs have seen his atrocious defense and are wary of putting him in the outfield. As great a season as he had, I've seen alot of Braves fans complain about his defense. Also wondering too if alot of clubs are skeptical about his 2020 #'s, because they were a significant deviation away from the norm.
