Draft Day Arbitrage: Getting A Fister From A Stranger

So yes, this is an overrated post but since I'm not Grey and Grey ain't me, you don't see the word 'Schmohawk' in the title. If I had, it would've been seen as a weak and watered down version of a Schmohawk piece. Mayhap you would've gone so far as to say it was a 'Faux hawk' which is really the worst thing ever.

Washington Nationals Spring Training Preview: Rotation

Has Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo accumulated the best starting rotation in the history of baseball? The four 20-game winners from Baltimore days past have the numbers, but the 2015 Washington rotation has the most talent.

Nationals Build Potential Super-Team, Add Max Scherzer

Here’s maybe the simplest way to put this: a season ago, by his peripherals, Tanner Roark was about a three-win pitcher. By his actual runs allowed, he was about a five-win pitcher. He actually finished with a higher RA9-WAR than Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister and a lot of other guys too. At present, the […]
