I like the new playoff format with more teams and no days off during each series. MLB should announce the format for upcoming seasons before free agency starts. Playoff rosters will need deeper pitching staffs if they don't have two days of rest to get an extra game for their top two starters.

Jim Hickey is our new pitching coach. He's currently with the Dodgers and he used to be with the Rays when Martinez was there. So Davey not only got a friend of his but one who could very well be a big upgrade.

Q: Ozuna

I hope the Nats don't go after Ozuna -- seeing him play the outfield makes Adam Dunn look serviceable and they've already (presumably) got Zimmerman/Kendrick who will be getting at bats at DH.

A: Thomas Boswell
I'm hoping the hot-season crowd aroun Ozuna, the passion for HRs, opens up a path for the Nats to get the classy Brantley --.311/.371/.481 for a .852 OPS. He;ll be 34, so a two-year deal seems probable. I'd gamble on the DH being in the N.L. in both those years, which makes it easier on older players, all of whom have somewhat bald tires.

Of course, Realmuto --and the Nats have to figure out if his late-season DL stink counts for much-- would be the happiest present for the holidays --a time, give or take a couple of weeks, when the Lerners have been known to give D.C. "nice things."

Brantley's a LH hitter. Has pretty decent production against lefties, so he'd be good protection for Soto in the lineup. Clutch in the playoffs too, 3 straight years of strong postseason #'s.

And then there's Justin Turner, Castellanos, Anthony Rizzo, etc.

@JessicaCamerato Hickey said he's most intrigued by the talent of the Nationals pitching staff: "It’s really, really top-heavy when you look at that rotation."


He got that right, that is Rizzo's standard roster construction, a handful of all-stars, a handful of quality starters, and a bunch of replacement level guys. The team excels when healthy and gets exposed as thin when injuries strike. Good enough to win a World Series.

Realmuto is only 30. They can use him like the Giants have used Posey, giving him a little time at 1B, to keep him fresh (and give Gomes playing time.)


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

They should have had Ramos playing first his last season here when he was crushing the ball, maybe he wouldn't have gotten hurt and would have signed here again.

Nats sign Josh Harrison to 1 yr deal. Not a huge surprise. Dude played well, and apparently Davey loves him.

The deal starts with a $1MM base salary. Incentives beginning at 200 plate appearances could add as much as $250K to the total, per Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post

Yes. In Spring Training 2023 he will turn 32. For now, he's 29.
