The Nationals obviously need an upgraded bullpen. So here's the way to fix it.
Right now the bullpen is:
- Matt Albers
- Koda Glover
- Shawn Kelley
- Oliver Perez
- Enny Romero
- Blake Trienen
- Jacob Turner
The Nats get Sammy Solis back, get a renewed and healthy Joe Blanton. And then they trade Austin Voth and Spencer Kieboom for Kelvin Herrera.
Then the bullpen is:
- Matt Albers
- Koda Glover
- Shawn Kelley
- Oliver Perez
- Enny Romero
- Blake Trienen
- Kelvin Herrera
- Sammy Solis
They will send Joe Blanton to the Minors to make sure he can get his veteran groove back. And they will carry 8 relievers because they don't have a long reliever.

Sounds like a plan.



05 Jan 2017 16:10:32
Yankees still trying to sign Kurt Suzuki. With McCann and Texeira gone, Suzuki would catch, Sanchez would play first, and Romine would start on the bench.


1.) 05 Jan 2017 17:35:46
Greg Bird will play 1B.

2.) 05 Jan 2017 17:44:49
Although Greg Bird is also capable of other positions (including DH), and if they do get Suzuki, Sanchez is a better option.

3.) 05 Jan 2017 18:04:22
where in the world are getting your info from? there is ZERO rumors about them attempting to sign Suzuki. Bird will be at first, or a platoon with Austin, Sanchez will catch. Don't pull things out your own convoluted mind.

4.) 05 Jan 2017 18:08:32
They won't sign him they will have Sanchez and Romine behind the plate and a combination of Bird and Austin and Holliday at 1st and DH.

Nationals Offseason Trade Predictions:

Trade: Errick Fedde
Get: Alex Colome
Sign: Brad Zielger
Sign: Jerry Blevins.


1.) 15 Dec 2016 22:51:11
Doubt they sign those guys. Blevins was a bust with the Nats and Ziegler didn't show too much with Boston.

2.) 15 Dec 2016 23:52:19
It would take more than Fedde to reel in Colome from the Rays.

3.) 16 Dec 2016 04:09:06
Colome is easily the best closer on the market adding in contract, it's going to take about what the phillies got for Giles to get him.

4.) 16 Dec 2016 19:56:36
The Phillies got way too much for Giles.



09 Dec 2016 16:34:21
Nationals willing to trade Danny Espinosa, moving Wilmer Difo to a bench spot. On the verge of trading him and a prospect for a closer.


1.) 09 Dec 2016 23:03:55
Danny E. is not going to bring a primo closer.



09 Dec 2016 16:26:46
Nats on the verge of trading for Mike Trout. Mike Rizzo still thinks he has the farm system to pull it off.


1.) 09 Dec 2016 17:44:14
No, they aren't. And no, they don't.

2.) 09 Dec 2016 21:17:11
The only chance they had at landing trout was Giolito, even then they'd have to package him with turner, and a lot of other pieces.

Here's my playoff predictions for this season:
Nationals (Best Record)
NL Wildcard
Astros (Best Record)
AL Wildcard
Red Sox
Rockies beat the Brewers, go on to lose to the Nationals. Nationals face the Diamondbacks. D-Backs win.
Red Sox beat the Twins and lose to the Astros. The Astros play the Yankees. Astros win.
Astros vs. Diamondbacks for the World Series. Astros win.




05 Jan 2017 15:58:06
With Spring Training soon, the Nationals are still looking for a good bench. Luis Valbuena is a very good option. Although he's not well known, he has good clutch power and is able to lead the bench to as good of a year as last year.


1.) 05 Jan 2017 19:44:17
I don't think they go after a guy who is best suited for a 1st/ DH role and they have a 1st and 3rd baseman already and there is no DH in the NL. They should go after a catcher and a closer 1st.

2.) 06 Jan 2017 21:58:45
1. Why include DH on an NL team?

2. You know who's a good 1B/ DH candidate that still hasn't signed? LOGAN MORRISON!

3.) 11 Jan 2017 01:30:14
You are beating a dead horse right now you know



29 Dec 2016 15:43:59
Nationals sign Jason Hammel for 2 years, 2,500,000 dollars. Similar to last year's salary - but the Nationals aren't looking to sign big.

2017 Roation:
1. Max Scherzer
2. Tanner Roark
3. Stephen Strasburg
4. Jason Hammel
5. Joe Ross

Gio Gonzalez in AAA Syracuse to build up confidence and work on mechanics. He'll be called for injury replacement when needed.


1.) 29 Dec 2016 18:25:49
You have no idea what you are doing, do you. The only way Gio Gonzalez starts the year in Triple A is if he is hurt to start the year. If they DFA him its a possibility, but more than likely he would get picked up by another team. Secondly that salary you have for Hammel isn't similar to last year, its less than half, he made 9 million.

2.) 29 Dec 2016 21:17:44
Gonzalez cannot be sent down to the minors without his permission. There's no way in hell he agrees to anything of the sorts.



29 Dec 2016 15:38:08
Rangers sign Mike Napoli to add to the lineup and get Jose Quintana to add to the rotation. Last move of the season.

1. Carlos Gomez CF
2. Nomar Mazara RF
3. Adrian Beltre 3B
4. Mike Napoli 1B
5. Rougned Odor 2B
6. Shin-Soo Choo LF
7. Jonathan Lucroy C
8. Elvis Andrus SS
9. Joey Gallo DH

1. Cole Hamels
2. Jose Quintana
3. Yu Darvish
4. Andrew Cashner
5. Martin Perez

Jurickson Profar
Jared Hoying
Robinson Chirinos
Delino DeShields
Hanser Alberto

Matt Bush
Jake Diekman
Tony Barnette
Keone Kela
Nick Martinez
Jeremy Jefress
Sam Dyson.


1.) 29 Dec 2016 18:26:46
So again it doesn't look like you know what you are doing. How do they get Quintana and what prospects do they trade?

2.) 04 Jan 2017 13:31:49
If Quintana is coming that means Profar and Gallo are certainly going. I wouldn't be supposed to see the White Sox ask for one of them along with Mazara for him, I am not saying that's what he is worth I am just saying that's what they seem to want in return for him.



14 Dec 2016 16:10:47
Here's my prediction for the Nationals 2017 25-Man Roster.
Starting Lineup:
1. Trea Turner SS
2. Adam Eaton CF
3. Bryce Harper RF
4. Daniel Murphy 2B
5. Anthony Rendon 3B
6. Derek Norris C
7. Jayson Werth LF
8. Ryan Zimmerman 1B
Jose Lobaton C
Emmanuel Burris IF, LF, RF
Wilmer Difo 2B, SS, 3B
Michael Taylor OF
Chris Heisey OF
Starting Rotation:
1. Max Scherzer
2. Stephen Strasburg
3. Tanner Roark
4. Joe Ross
5. Gio Gonzalez
Trevor Gott SR
Oliver Perez SR
Austin Voth LR
Sammy Solis MR
Blake Trienen MR
Shawn Kelley SU
Jimmy Cordero CP

Bullpen Key:
SR- Short Reliever (1 Inning)
LR- Long Reliever (1-5 Innings
MR- Middle Reliever (1-2 Innings)
CP- Closer.


1.) 15 Dec 2016 05:34:39
Not bad but the bench needs work and they will need a closer.

2.) 15 Dec 2016 13:57:16
They either sign Holland or trade Taylor, Cole and Severino for Robertson. And sign Cogland to replace Taylor on the bench.

There is no way the Nats would give away those players, especially Stevenson. Eaton injured, so Stevenson will be promoted in September. Werth and Harper are almost gone too.

What a rip off for the White Sox. Juan Soto maybe, but they don't need Garcia. It's been hard for White Sox to work out a trade with just Robertson.

I think it's a great trade but both teams will be wimps to do it. Two players who are both a big part of their teams make it hard to part with them.

As much as the Yankees would go for him and be willing to give up someone good, trades don't include that many players. It's more of a 2 for 1 kind of thing.

Not only do I think this could be a good trade -- but it's really funny because when you mentioned Xavier Cedeno something clicked. He used to be a National!

I believe he could go there but not with that kind of contract.

They're probably reconsidering signing him. With amount of money they need to pay all of their new players, paying for another one might just be too much.
