Was hoping the news on DeGrom would have been worse than announced today. He'll be ready for Opening Day now.

Opt Out score so far:

Nats -3
Braves -1
Phils 0
Mets 0
Marlins 0

This season could be pretty tight in the NL East. Predictions:

Atla 34-26
Nats 32-28
Mets 31-29
Phil 28-32
Marl 24-36

Braves lose Donaldson and Markakis this season and those are big numbers lost for them, although adding Marcell Ozuna helped them some. Sorry, Kieboom + Thames does not equal Rendon + Zimm, not even close, so there's that void for the Nats, too. At some point their roster of guys age mid 30's and up are gonna fade, hopefully not this season. The Braves handled the Nats in head-to-head contests last year, especially late in the season when it mattered, which is another reason I'm picking Braves to take the division. Mets get Cespedes back -- that team concerns me if they stay somewhat healthy this season. Syndegaard out til late Aug / early Sept.

Throw everything out the window if Covid hits any of these teams this season, which is more likely When, not If.

The Nats won the World Series by being virtually injury free after their early set backs. Without Rendon and Zimmerman they really can't afford to lose anyone. Starting pitching and out outfield remain strengths. The DH will help hide our lack of depth. Hopefully the playoffs expand to 16 teams because with Strasburg and Scherzer we have a great chance to repeat.

MLB games will look like a NASCAR race this year, ads placed by teams over the empty seats, ads placed by the TV networks all around the field.

Dude who wrote the article used to post here back in the 2000's. Had some good ideas. But for a guy who hosted a site called "The Business of Baseball", he was inept at understanding baseball's financial relationships with advertisers and the broadcast networks. Who knows, maybe he figgered it out.

Good article.

I forgot about that. I used to follow him on Twitter and read his articles but stopped a while back because he had more opinions than information and one thing we have no shortage of in the internet age is opinions.

Soto tested positive, he's out.

Hope he recovers quickly and fully.

Tough times at Forbes if they had to use him as a source. Scary.

He's been writing for Forbes for a long time, but that isn't as impressive as it used to be. Forbes allows just about anyone to write for their site as long as they can drive the page clicks.

On the Soto situation, there is some hope that the test was a false positive. He had a bunch of negative tests before and after the positive test so there is a chance he'll be back soon.

Following post-game interviews I saw more Doolittle quotes then all of the other players combined. I doubled checked the box score and confirmed that Doo did not actually appear in the game.

Dooliitle has been dethroned as the closer, and his ERA is up in the clouds. How does the clown sleep at nite?

Btw Braves lost BOTH catchers to covid testing. They rushed up a catcher from the minors for last night's game, The kid had played in only a couple of games in the minors before. This is one of the things I thought about when Welington Castro opted out.

The Nats lost a catcher to a steroid suspension, Tres Barrera, hopefully Suzuki stays healthy and the Nats don't feel the loss of Barrera.

“Yeah, I mean, to be frank, this season is kind of a mess to begin with, so I got to think big picture here and it's my career,” Strasburg said. “I know that in the long run it's important to try to make as many starts as you can, and by putting yourself in a compromising position now, I don't really know if it's the best way moving forward.”


Instead of looking at 2020 as an opportunity to snatch a second World Series it appears that Strasburg is looking at it as a blow off year. Windows don't stay open forever and World Series flags don't have asterisks. 2012 all over again.

The Marlins have had an outbreak among the team, a bunch of positive tests. The people who thought that MLB should skip 2020 are now calling for the season to be shut down.

Non-Nats fans on MLBTR are doom and glooming The Nats' chances this year due in part to Soto being out. But if someone catches Covid, better it be now, rather than Oct-Nov when the games really start mattering. These people piling on seem to have no clue that no team is gonna be exempt from losing players to Covid. And its prob gonna ramp up in November, too.

It seems certain that the Nats won't be travelling to Miami this weekend. So with the Blue Jays playing their home games at Nats Park the first road trip for the Nationals won't be until 8/10 at the Mets.

It's time for some of the Nats beat writers to opt out for the season. If they are so against having games this year they should stay home and stop covering sports.

Why cancel the season if you have a 60 man roster? They anticipated this! Sounds like there could be scheduling issues with makeup games, because each team only has 6 days off this season. Alternate site maybe for the Marlins? But damn, 13 people in the Marlins organization tested positive.

Been surprised that more players have not opted out this season, especially vets with big net worth. That train could pick up steam now.

I'm reading comments blaming Manfred and MLB for the outbreak, but it was the players who refused to live in a bubble like the NBA and NHL. Chances are the initial batch players caught the bug outside of MLB facilities.

The Yankees-Phillies game was postponed because the Marlins were just in Philadelphia and the Yankees would be using the same clubhouse the Marlins were just using.


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

Ok yesterday 11 Marlins players tested positive. Today 4 people "in the organization" test positive, no word on how many were players.

ESPN is making a big deal that 0 Phillies have tested positive after the Marlins series...unless i'm mistaken, i think it can take up to 2 weeks for covid symptoms to be detected. In the middle of the story is this: "A member of the Philadelphia visiting clubhouse personnel did test positive."

not feeling good right now if im a philly fan.

Braves roster this season loses Markakis, Donaldson, both catchers to covid...now this, wow:

The Braves have decided to designate righty Mike Foltynewicz for assignment, manager Brian Snitker told reporters including MLB.com’s Mark Bowman (via Twitter). He’ll be replaced by reliever Chad Sobotka on the active roster.

This certainly rates as an early-season stunner. The 28-year-old Foltynewicz has had his ups and downs in Atlanta, to be sure. He was an All-Star just two seasons ago before experiencing enough difficulty last year that the Braves demoted him to the minors in late June. However, Foltynewicz rebounded when the Braves recalled him in early August, and they’re now committed to paying him a pro-rated portion of his $6,425,000 salary this season — unless another team makes a claim — and will be giving up another season of arbitration control.

I don't buy that it can take two weeks before symptoms appear, if your fine after five days you don't have it.

I just looked up incubation periods for colds and flu. A cold is 1-3 days. Flu is 2-4 days. The 14 days for Covid is media hype.

Soto has had two negative tests via the MLB lab, he should be good to go but for some reason has not yet been cleared.

Meanwhile the Nats voted to not travel to Miami this weekend. Used to be that was called a forfeit but apparently not in this case.

Nats manager Dave Martinez tells reporters that Soto has now received the required back-to-back negative test results from Major League Baseball’s approved labs (Twitter link via Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post). The team is simply awaiting league/city clearance for Soto’s return at this point.

That report came out before the game yesterday, I don't see a lot of complaining from the team so my guess is that DC is the hold up, not MLB.

What a mess, the Nats say they were waiting for DC, the city says that they weren't the hold up, meanwhile Soto sits. At least he'll be cleared by next Tuesday.

Sucks being a Mets fan. You bank your playoff hopes on Cespedes who aint been healthy in years, and is in the final year of his contract. Suddenly he's a no-show at a game. The team searches for him and then panics after finding his hotel room is empty. And then a call to his agent only to hear "Oh, uhh, he opted out, sorry no one told you". What a dick.

2 aces down.

Braves take it in the ass losing their second (and current) ace, Mike Soroka. Stud last year, and this season he had an ERA in the 1's going into last nite's game. Excerpt from Espn:

Now, just 11 games into a 60-game sprint, the Braves have a huge hole to fill in a rotation that already has been a trouble spot.

One-time ace Mike Foltynewicz was sent outright to minor league camp after getting hammered in his first start of the season. Talented but unproven pitchers such as Kyle Wright and Touki Toussaint have yet to show the sort of consistency Atlanta needs.
Especially now, with the Braves losing the guy who held down the top spot.

Soroka was making his third start of the season. He came in having allowed just two earned runs over 11⅓ innings but struggled against the Mets, giving up three hits and four walks.

Smh.

< (Strasburg) made his season debut last Sunday, though the Orioles roughed him up for five earned runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. It turns out that Strasburg may not have been at full strength during that outing, as manager Dave Martinez revealed Wednesday (via Byron Kerr of MASNsports.com) that the 32-year-old is still dealing with tingling in his hand. “I was a little bit concerned,” admitted Martinez, who added that “we will definitely have to keep an eye on it.” Strasburg’s scheduled to face Baltimore again on Friday, at least for now. >

With no NL East team breaking away, race to MLB playoffs could go the distance

ESPN.com

When Juan Soto homered in the top of the ninth inning on Monday night to give the Washington Nationals a 6-3 lead over the Atlanta Braves, he admired his blast and enjoyed a slow trot around the bases -- the seventh time in his 12 Major League Baseball games he has made such a trot, so he's been on the frequent-flyer tour. Braves reliever Will Smith did not like Soto's reaction, however, and shouted a few choice words at the young phenom.

Soto's blast appeared to be the exclamation point on an important win for the struggling Nationals, but the Braves got the last word thanks to Dansby Swanson's two-run walk-off home run that capped a four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth off Nationals closer Daniel Hudson for a 7-6 win. It was a dramatic two-game swing in the National League East, a division mired in mediocrity of late.

For Swanson, it was his first career walk-off home run -- at least in the majors. "I think I did it once when I was 8," he said, laughing, after the game. "The mental piece has become such a big part for me, especially this year. Those are just scenarios you envision yourself in. The brain's a powerful muscle, so just trying to put it to good use."

Swanson, by the way, is developing a nice clutch reputation. Entering the game, he was a career .326 hitter in "late and close" situations, compared to his overall average of .247.

The other NL East contest wasn't so inspired. At one point during the New York Mets-Miami Marlins game, Mets announcer Gary Cohen said, in mild disgust, "We have three teams playing a bad game tonight." He was referring to the two teams on the field as well as the umpires, who had three calls reversed in the early innings of the game. The Mets would go on to rout the Marlins 11-4 behind two home runs apiece from Robinson Cano and Pete Alonso.

It occurs to me that Cohen's comment combines nicely with the Mets' victory as a perfect summation of the NL East race so far. The Mets entered the game reeling a bit after the Philadelphia Phillies swept them over the weekend, but in this division, one game like this one feels like all the momentum a team needs to turn things around, especially if it is a sign Alonso is going to heat up.

Here's one way to look at what is going on there. Each team's record over the past 10 games:

Braves: 5-5
Marlins: 4-6
Phillies: 5-5
Mets: 5-5
Nationals: 4-6

Meh. The Braves remain the favorite -- according to FanGraphs, their odds of winning the division increased from 50.9% to 56.7% after Monday's victory -- but they are not a team without issues. Atlanta's rotation is in tatters, Ronald Acuna Jr. is on the injured list with a sore left wrist and might not return until next week and Ozzie Albies has been out since Aug. 5 with a right wrist injury. That's why this loss stung like a Mike Tyson-in-1986 punch for the Nationals. You can't lose these games, especially when the opposing starter struggles.

Indeed, Atlanta starter Touki Toussaint allowed four runs in three innings thanks to six walks and two home runs allowed. Really, the damage should have been worse, but the Nationals would go 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position. Since Aug. 3, the game in which Mike Soroka went down for the season, Braves starters have a 5.98 ERA while averaging fewer than four innings per start; Max Fried is the only reliable option they have going right now. The saving grace for Atlanta is that during that same time period, Nationals starters have a 5.93 ERA and Mets starters a 6.11 ERA.

The Braves aren't the only team with rotation issues. Just look at Monday's two games. Anibal Sanchez struggled through his five innings for the Nationals, allowing three runs and seven hits while walking three and striking out just one batter -- and that was his best outing of the season. Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto got knocked out in the second inning and has made it through just 8⅔ innings in his three starts. The Mets, lacking any other options, used a bullpen game.

That's on top of the all the injuries -- Soroka and Cole Hamels for the Braves; Noah Syndergaard and Marcus Stroman for the Mets (with Stroman subsequently opting out of the season); and the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg, who can't get over the nerve issue in his right hand and has returned to the injured list. The Phillies' rotation has actually been decent so far with a 3.59 ERA, but due to the games missed because of the Marlins' COVID-19 outbreak, Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler have started eight of their 17 games. Their bullpen, however? Last in the majors with an unspeakable 8.77 ERA.

This race could be a short-season reminder of the infamous 1973 NL East race. The Mets won the division that year with an 82-79 record -- tied with 2005 Padres for the fewest wins for a division champ in a 162-game season -- which was good enough to finish 1.5 games ahead of the Cardinals, 2.5 ahead of the Pirates, 3.5 ahead of the Expos and five ahead of Cubs. The Mets were actually in last place on Aug. 30 that season, and four games under .500 with 11 to play before a seven-game winning streak pulled it out.

The teams have changed, but we could see a similar five-team race to .500, at least if the Marlins continue to play respectable baseball. The Nationals and Mets are four games behind the Braves, but one big week is all it takes. That's what makes the Mets perhaps more interesting than the Nationals -- they can score runs. Brandon Nimmo, Michael Conforto, J.D. Davis and Cano all have .400-plus on-base percentages. Alonso went 3-for-3 with two walks on Monday and is up to .241/.359/.448. Dominic Smith is hitting .310 and slugging .741.

The Nationals, meanwhile, might have the game's best hitter in Soto, but their fourth and fifth hitters Monday were veterans Asdrubal Cabrera (who at least has been hitting well) and Kurt Suzuki. Outfielders Adam Eaton and Victor Robles are off to slow starts, and rookie Carter Kieboom, replacing Anthony Rendon at third base, doesn't have an extra-base hit yet. Soto has been spectacular, but he can't do it himself.

Who will take the NL East? The projections still favor the Braves, injuries and rotation warts notwithstanding. The Nats are going to be in trouble if they don't get Strasburg back. The Mets had their own scare when Jacob deGrom had his last start pushed back a few days. The Phillies have a locked-in Bryce Harper and their bullpen can't be this bad the rest of the way. The Marlins, well, you never know. Get ready for the first five-way division tie in MLB history.

Adam Eaton is out with a broken finger, another guy who has probably played his last game in a Nats uniform. His first couple seasons were a bust due to injuries and Rizzo gave up too much to get him, but he'll always be remembered for his home run celebrations with Kendrick during the World Series run. Sucks to have him go out on the injured list in a season with no fans for him to get a final curtain call.

The team has an option to pick him up for $10.5M or cut him for a $1.5M buyout. The speculation I've seen is that he'll be let go. The Nats don't have much outfield depth so I'd keep him.

If they dump Eaton I dont see a reliable leadoff hitter on the club, unless they have Turner do it. But he's more valuable as a #3 hitter.

Ozuna will be 30 before next season. He'll be coming off a $18 mill 1 yr deal. he'd look damn good in RF next season. Just dont know if he's gonna fit into the Lerners' budget for '21, and we need 1 or 2 SP's to boot. with the season he's having, Ozuna will have several suitors.

From Byron Kerr, Covid has been a non factor for a month.

COVID-19 testing results #MLB: 2 of 12,381 samples, 0.02%, were new positives. No new positives from players and staff. Both positive tests were from a single Club’s Alternate Training Site. Among players, there have been no new positives for 19 cons. days and 27 of last 28 days.

Cant stand the Braves, but they have my respect. 3 straight NLE titles, and they won it this year with a MASH unit for starting pitching. The starters on their Opening Day roster have either been DFA'd, or lost for the season due to injury (with the exception of Fried, and he just got hurt this week).

Their current .607 win % equates to 98 wins over a regular 162 game schedule. Guess it helps when most of their opponents have been substandard NLE teams. But still, props to them. They didnt mope, or make FP-like BS excuses about how crazy 2020 is.

Braves team ERA: 7th in NL. Nats team ERA: second to LAST in NL. How does Menhart explain how just about every healthy pitcher regressed (or regressed badly) from the 2019 season ?

Atlanta the reigning division champ, the Mets with a new deep pocket owner, the Marlins and Phillies on the rise, the NLE is going to be a tough division. Good thing the Nats won the World Series right as our window was closing. Time to reload.

That starts with Soto, Robles, Truner, Garcia, and Kieboom, along with Scherzer, Strasburg, and Corbin, who still have several years on their contracts. Build around them.

3rd straight collapse. Likin' that. ESPN excerpt today:

Matt Klentak has stepped down as general manager of the Philadelphia Phillies after a third straight September collapse left the team out of the postseason for the ninth consecutive season.

Klentak will be reassigned to another position in the organization, and Ned Rice will serve as interim general manager until the Phillies hire someone to run baseball operations.

Phlllies are a mess right now, they fired "stepped down" their GM who signed Bryce Harper and now the owner is saying that they don't have the budget to sign Realmuto. Hate to see the collapse of such a mediocre franchise, almost as bad as watching the Os implode.

Harper is such a classless douche. He took to the local media and basically said the Phillies have to re-sign Realmuto, putting pressure on the owners. Meanwhile, to your earlier point about the Mets owner: I didnt know the guy was the single richest owner in MLB now. It'll be interesting to see if The Mets go hard after JTR and/or other high profile guys like Ozuna, Springer, Bauer etc.

I found it amusing how many upset comments I've been reading about Menhart being let go, as though any fan could judge his effectiveness without having any inside knowledge. Could be that Menhart was the scapegoat for a team that had terrible pitching this year even with the high dollar contracts for Scherzer, Corbin, Sanchez, Doolittle, and Hudson. Could be that his personality clashed with the wrong guy or that the team thought that he was passing too much info to the media. Could be that Rizzo knows of another coach coming available who he considers to be an upgrade.

I expect that the Mets follow the path of the Dodgers and start spending big immediately. Baseball is the easiest sport to buy a championship. Although way back in 2006 I had the same expectation for the Lerners and they bottomed out payroll for years before starting a gradual increase, a strategy that also appears to be working for the Marlins ownership group.

MLB.com in March ranked Mets' minor league system 20th. And their major league roster is the 5th oldest in MLB. Interesting to see if he addresses one or both of those areas first.

Other minor league teams ranked:

#4 -- Marlins
#8 -- Braves
#19 -- Phils
#29 -- Nats

The Lerner "Plan" was based on the idea that you had to build from the minors first, I always rejected that idea. You can jump start an MLB program real fast with the right free agents. Meanwhile you can still do scouting for a relatively cheap price to maximize stocking the minors via the draft.

If you weren't aware, this 2020 #Nats starting rotation ranked the WORST in the history of the Nats in terms of ERA. That 2006 rotation can now know that they were unseeded. A 5.38 ERA for 2020's starting rotation cost Menhart his job at the very least.

If MLB keeps the expanded playoff format, there'll be less incentive for him to rebuild. And they only finished 3.0 GB the final seed. They have a decent team to build around with deGrom, Alonso, etc...

The Nationals need to bring in a big righthanded hitter to hit behind Soto. The two top choices in the free agent market are Realmuto or Marcell Ozuna.

With Suzuki a free agent, the catching consists of Yan Gomes and Raudy Read (or Tres Barrera.) The outfield has Soto, Robles, Andrew Stevenson, Yadiel Hernandez. Michael A. Taylor is a free agent.

IMO, the current set of outfielders is stronger than the current group of catchers, so I would go after Realmuto first and maintain contact with Ozuna just in case Realmuto goes elsewhere.

The fact that it will slap Bryce Harper in the face is gravy.

Phils traded alot to get Realmuto a couple years ago. They need to validate that move. So let them overpay on JTR and be saddled with another crazy ass contract. Nats need Ozuna. Besides, who in-house would they use to replace Eaton next season, Stephenson? Harrison? No thanks.

Yankees lost $400 million in 2020. Mets lost $200 million, and Phils lost $160 million. How much did The Lerners lose? Sure, those figures are from MLB, and the numbers are probably cooked. Still, with the pandemic and the economic uncertainty, I dont see Rizzo winning a sales pitch to the Lerners to sign a catcher to a deal into his late 30's (if that is what the market demands) when catchers dont historically age well. If The Lerners can take advantage of a soft market and scoop up Ozuna or JTR to good deals, great. But if not we then might end up with a Tier 2 guy like Brantley. No problem with that. And then let Gomes finish out his final year.

Did those teams lose that much in franchise value, money in the bank, or potential earnings? Probably just earnings, which they obviously aren't happy about but not the same impact as if they had to reach into their pockets. I'm with you on not trusting the MLB figures since they are still negotiating with the players. With salaries cut by more than half and more playoff money the teams were a lot less exposed to taking those sort of losses.

I wonder what the relationship is between Realmuto and Harper. In DC Bryce's teammates were mostly happy to see him gone, Harper keeps saying that he wants the Phillies to re-sign Realmuto but does JT care about playing with Bryce?

I dont think either of us will be surprised to see big dollar guys like Ozuna, Bauer, and Realmuto select 1 year deals if the market demand this Fall. Which might favor the Nats.

The info came from an article on NJ.com. It cited a loss of earnings in those individual team cases. If you estimate the Nats avg'd 30k fans x 81 that's 2.4 million fans. Multiplied by how much the average fan spends at a game with ticket + everything else....

The angst in Philly continues. Phils pitching coach retires after 1 season. Was credited for greatly improving team's ERA. Phillies in 2021 will be on their 5th pitching coach in 5 seasons.

Stevenson looked pretty good in what was admittedly an abbreviated run this season. Yadiel Hernandez looked decent also.

With Suzuki a free agent, the outfield corps without any changes (Ozuna, Springer, or re-signing Eaton) looks stronger at this point than the catching without any changes. They have Soto, Robles, Stevenson, and Hernandez in the outfield. They are likely to sign at least one of Harrison, Cabrera, and Holt, and likely Howie, if he wants to play another year. The catching right now consists of Gomes, Raudy Read, and Tres Barrera. I think the catching is more in need of an upgrade.


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