Robles struck out, then a single sandwiched by a couple walks ends the inning when the Cards use the new 20 rule. No benefit to going deep in the count, swing away.

Fedde starts out with a single and a couple walks and then adds a wild pitch to allow a run. Might be time to sell off players for draft picks and start building for the future.


Victor Robles - CF
Andrew Stevenson - RF
Trea Turner - SS
Josh Bell - 1B
Kyle Schwarber - LF
Starlin Castro - 2B
Hernán Pérez - 3B
Blake Swihart - C
Jake Noll - DH

Erick Fedde - RHP

I saw a headline where Fedde was commenting about being in the same spot every spring, hoping to win the fifth starter spot. Probably out of context but the headline made it look like he was complaining. At 28 years old that is probably his ceiling if he doesn't make a leap forward this year. Good luck to him, he doesn't even get to his first arb year until next year. Kind of crappy the way the current service time rules are set up, a marginal guy like Fedde could play four more years and never get a really big payday while there are so many vastly overpaid vets.

Three home runs in a row works, nice to see Zimmerman get one of them after his history of slow starts. So much for the dead balls, might be they are using up the last of the 2020 balls.

Zuckerman reported that the Nats have now blown a ninth inning lead in every game so far this spring.

Yep, Kieboom playing up to his potential is one of the key pieces that could make us a contender this year. Him, along with Harris, Corbin, Stras, Lester, Bell, Robles, Ross, Schwarber are all high ceiling guys who have something to prove either coming back from injury or bouncing back from a disappointing season. Six of those eight have good years and we'll roll into the playoffs.

A couple bombs from the new guys, Bell and Schwarber. Another shit start for Fedde, three hits, a walk, and three runs in one inning.

Four weeks and a couple hours until first pitch at Nats Park. They say usually the pitchers are ahead of the hitters early but the Nats are knocking balls out of the park. Martinez is slow rolling his pitching staff, at some point we are going to need to see our top line guys take the mound.

Mostly uneventful week, which is what you want in March. Jeffress was released due to some mysterious off field issue, meanwhile our hitters are bashing the ball. Three weeks until opening day. I'm still holding out hope of getting a ticket.

maybe the best news this spring is from robles: real good obp so far hitting leadoff and he's taken some walks.

Who's hot:
Zimmerman - only four games but top on the team with a 1.555 OPS
Castro
Avila - would be a nice surprise if he keeps hitting
Bell - will be pushing Zim for playing time
Harrison
Gomes

Who's not:
Turner
Kieboom - uh oh, not good
Soto - lowest OPS in spring, hold off on that half billion contract

We might need a dedicated Soto thread. Fangraphs says that he is worth a $500 million contact, Talk Nats says $400.

The problem is that if there was 1 guy on the roster who really needed to have a good ST it was Kieboom. .143 so far.

And when he's not hitting, his high strikeout rate becomes even more problematic:

33% in 2019 regular season
40% in 2020 regular season
31% so far this Spring Training. Against pitchers of random quality

Stras seems to have bounced back from his sore leg, he pitched a sim game. Robles strained his back making a long throw and got pulled from the game yesterday but he's young and strong and should be fine. I hate spring training, nothing but five weeks of bad news.

And now Davey is suggesting 3B is up for grabs. Wonder if we're gonna see Castro at 3B and Harrison at 2B to start the season.

Spring training is over. After that rough first half inning the offense did well. No bad injuries. The only negative from Palm Beach was Kieboom's performance and hopefully he'll turn things around before the AS break.

Zimmerman + Bell together could be MASSIVE upgrades at 1B this season -- hope they both keep crushing the ball. Not the greatest ST's for Hand and Hudson. Hopefully those guys will work things out. They are badly needed this season. Rainey looks like he might be back to normal, 2 k's in 1 inning yesterday.

If Zimmerman plays close to the level of his prime and Bell keeps hitting do we move one for a third baseman? I assume that neither of them can play any position other than first and DH.

Davey seems pretty committed to keeping older guys like Zimm to 300 ab's or less, so I think they need to keep Bell (great strategy in 2019 because it kept old men Howie and Zimm fresh for the playoff/WS run). And since Zimm is Mr National I doubt Rizz would deal him, unless some club made him an offer he couldnt refuse.

There's alot of fans who want to move on from Kieboom, but I think the Nats need to be patient with 1st round talent guys who have a major upside, especially if they think they can "fix" him.

When does Turner's deal expire? If they cant re-sign him then maybe you use Kieboom & Garcia to fill 2b and SS ? Hopefully by then both players will be more seasoned, etc.

Definitely lots of rest paid off big for Hendrick but I'm more of a mind to play Zimmerman as much as possible when he's hitting. With the year off he might be fully healthy for the first time in a long time, but if he isn't we might as well get as many at bats from him as we can while he's able. No chance of Zimmerman being traded.

Kieboom I could see getting traded. Seven years of team control for a once promising prospect for a rental third baseman from a team not contending this year.

Turner has one more season after this one before he's a free agent. I'd be fine with trading him, it would not be popular with the fan base but Rizzo doesn't give a crap about that. It would be very unusual for the Nats, they let Zimmermann, Harper, and Desmond all walk after their final season rather than trading them. Not having a solid third baseman right now makes is really tough to move our shortstop even if we wanted to.

I'm fine with them not trading Turner, only because they have all those starting pitchers who can take you real deep into the playoffs.

Lindor just got a $350 million contact. If Turner dreams of getting that much we can find someone else to play short after the next couple seasons.

The Mets owner came in spending big, hopefully that backfires and they get stuck with some bad contracts. On the other hand Mets fans have to be happy to not have to go through what the Lerners did to Nats fans those first few years.

If Trea proves that he can put up the same numbers as he did last season...that's a tough call about whether or not to wave him goodbye. The problem with guys like him is that they want long term contracts that take them into their mid-late 30's, when they become dead weight.

Boswell said a year or so ago that he thinks Turner's not long for DC anyway because he's like Rendon, he's not that fond of DC. But who knows. If Boswell says something quite often the opposite happens anyway.
