Who knows what happened -- did the Nats decide on the break, or Long -- we'll probably never know about the Insider discussions. At this point, it probably doesnt matter. Braves have been destroyed by injuries the past 2 seasons and they've still handily won the NLE 3x in a row. Nats need to figure things out.


Long is coming back for 2021, a somewhat surprising reversal. I guess he looked around the league and didn't get a better offer. Reports are that he was popular with Soto and other players so hopefully whatever issues led him to look elsewhere have been resolved.

Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy, Zimm & Soto sing his praises, among many others. That's a helluva list of references. Glad (and relieved) that he's back.

And I suspected that it was not a case of The Nats just kicking him to the curb a few weeks ago. Sounds like he used his relationship with Soto to get the best deal possible out of the Nats. He didnt get what he wanted, so he looked for other suitors. If so, no problem with that.

I wonder if Jake Lamb would be worth signing. Lefty -hitting corner IF. Plays 3B and 1B. Not a bad hitter. Could add depth.


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

A few teams have considered Long or manager. He was told that he could look for better opportunities, which I would assume include managing jobs, perhaps bench coach. Nothing materialized, and he was always welcome back.
