Trying for a Mini-Sweep (vs. NATIONALS, 8/28)

Recommended Posts

OK, I just Got here, and I see that the Nats put up a five spot in the first inning, but nothing since.

 So, should I be encouraged by the “nothing since “ or discouraged By the five spot? I don’t think the defense is helping him, although there’s only one error on the board so far. How was he looking over all?

If he ends up going 14 innings with just the five runs I'll consider it a decent start.

The runner almost kicked him in the head.  Which he may have noticed...or not. 

Catching up here. How was that possible? Davis laid out for a bad throw into the runner's path?

Guys, he's not very good.

He was only an above average first baseman for two, maybe three seasons.

He's a liability in the field, at the plate, and on the bases.

He's probably still better defensively at first than anyone else we have, right?

Mancini might be better, but I would take Davis over anyone else...on defense, certainly not overall.

I mean you could put Richie Martin there and I bet he'd do fine.

I'm not sure he's better than Mancini at this point, I'm thinking he's not.

Booted the ball, recovered and dove directly at the bag headfirst which he did not reach and the runner had to hop over his head.

Re: Martin, height matters at first base and we'd have somehow managed to find a worse hitter to play there!

Sisco had a Davis looking swing right there.  His swing seems it looks longer and more sweeping since he has arrived up here.   Wonder if being around Davis? Nah.

Jeesh, glad I didn't see that.
