Nats AAA to Fresno….what?

fresno

Article here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nationals-journal/wp/2018/09/18/the-nationals-class-aaa-affiliate-will-be-moving-to-less-than-convenient-fresno/?utm_term=.3b2b16303cc4

Syracuse to DC, not ideal but not too bad. Fresno to DC??? WTF?

The Nationals knew they would have to leave Syracuse when the New York Mets bought the Chiefs before this season, virtually guaranteeing they would sign a player development contract there when the Chiefs’ player development contract with the Nationals expired. Several other Class AAA affiliates were playing under expiring player development contracts, so the Nationals figured to have a chance at somewhere fairly close. Nashville, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Fresno, and Round Rock (Tex.) were available.

“[Fresno] was our second choice. Obviously, we made it clear Nashville was our primary choice and they chose someone else,” Rizzo said. “We ended up going to a place that wanted us and we’re happy with.”

Yep, this makes total sense.

 

What in the world did Bryce do to Laz Diaz? UPDATED

Update:

Yikes…

Game 140-In case you missed it…Nats lose 7-6

Roberto Clemente day at the park.

Oh look, there’s our old friend Matt Adams…

I don’t know why the first tweet phrased this as “revenge”…The guy didn’t even play here a complete season, was going to get a new contract somewhere else likely anyways even if the Nats hadn’t blown it up.

Another bad night for Roark: 5 innings, 10 hits, 6 ER, 0 BB’s, 4 K’s. I feel like the Nats fans sometimes try and make this guy something he is not…

Nats now 7.5 Games back in the NL EAST and 9 Games Back in the WC.

Oh hey, Football is back tonight!

Next Game:

Tonight at 7:05 ET vs. the Cubs

Hendricks (11-10, 3.77 ERA) vs. Strasburg (7-7, 4.09 ERA)

Game 139-In case you missed it…Nats lose 11-8

Fedde gets the start after the call-up and starts things off with a K

Then in the 2nd…things get tricky…

Ozuna hits a bomb, and another one in the 6th

Paul DeJong and Patrick Wisdom also homer

Fedde’s final line: 5 innings, 4 Hits, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 K’s

Austen Williams also gives up 3 ER.

One would think 8 runs scored by the Nats would be enough, but unfortunately not the case.

Next Game:

Today at 7:05PM ET vs. Cardinals

Mikolas (13-4, 2.96 ERA) vs. Roark (8-14, 4.03 ERA)

Robles+Soto=Nats Future

Can’t wait to see these guys together.

See Scouting Report on Robles from 2017 Here

Another guy who tracks the ball well in the box, plenty of speed, decent bat.

Meanwhile big league clubs are ALREADY staying away from Soto

Nats September Callups

It will be good to see Joe Ross again, as he will likely be in the starting rotation next season. Robles as well, had that early season injury and was out for a bit, a lot of excitement around his abilities.
