2012 Washington Nationals Thread
Ok, I figured I'd start this instead of responding to various Nats-themed threads.
Nats are 5-2, rotation is looking solid, offense is pretty weak, and the bullpen has been shaky.
David Morse has been shutdown for 6 weeks.
Drew Storen is going to miss a lot of time too and looks to be back by the ASB, but who knows.
So there are 2 key injuries that this team has to overcome.

Gio looked good. Stras appears to be back full steam ahead. When Michael Morse gets back the rumor is now that Harper could come up with him. Werth appears to have rebounded from a miserable year last year but still seems to be missing the power he generated from hitting in Citizens Bank.
This team can be a legitimate contender. The NL East is way less competitive this year and they've got 3 really top end starters in Gio/Stras/Zimm. They are a team to really keep an eye on. So far they are 5-2 without those guys, but looks like they'll miss both for about 8 weeks, so it will be interesting to see.

Their rotation is pretty balanced with Jackson and Detwiler on the backend. I don't see them going on long losing streaks because of that. Their bullpen will be fine without Storen with Clippard, Rodriguez, and Lidge.
Their success depends on the offense especially their middle infield production, IMO.

I wonder about Lidge as the closer.
Storen is going to be out for 3 months.
Bringing in Harper and Morse at the same time would be a good idea and really give that offense a boost.

Not really baseball-related, but Springsteen is playing Nats park on September 14. Have there ever been any concerts at OPACY? I know it was talked about a while back.

Nats with another walk off win in extra innings. Exciting team.

I listened to a Gio Gonzalez interview on my way home from work. Man, he's impressive. I know they gave up a lot for him, but I think it's well worth it.
