We will see.

We've got a very new lineup compared to last year. We don't have lot of power, but I don't think runs will be our problem. I think the bats will take a few games to liven up, though.

It's our rotation that scares me. But on the other hand, I'm encouraged by the defense. Livan really had a sub par outing, but we still only gave up 2 runs.

I'm still predicting a .500 season +/- 5 games.

Yeah I think our offense will be much better, especially if Morse lives up to the hype. The rotation is just pathetic at best. I expected this going in without Strasburg though.

Still not sold on Morse as an every day player. Would be happy to be proven wrong, though.

And strange as it may sound, I think we will miss Nyjer Morgan, attitude and all. I don't see many stolen bases in our immediate future. Ugh, and Desmond, I love the kid as a SS, but a leadoff hitter, he is not.

Weird seeing Werth hitting in the 2 slot. That does not seem like the proper spot in the lineup for him. Kind of takes away from his potential for power and driving in runs.

especially hitting after fuging Ian Desmond lol

idk, with Morgan gone I don't really see a legitimate leadoff hitter.

Nats got screwed on the strike zone at the end of that game. Not that I am complaining of course.

I understand giving some close pitches to a guy like Halladay, but they literally doubled the strike zone on that final at bat to Pudge. I'm not even hating on the ump for the Stairs at bat; he sat there and and struck out looking to 3 very close pitches.

The Pudge at bat though was fuging disgusting. First he gave him the pitch on the inside corner. Whatever, if you're going to call it at least be consistent. and then on the final pitch, WAYYYY outside, and it's strike 3. Just a bullshit way to end the game.

    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
    • Didn't zeke take a lot of runs out of shotgun at Ohio state?? I didn't pay much attention to him when he was there but you really wouldnt have noticed last year that he wasn't use to running off of normal run hand off plays.
    • Might wanna check the numbers and see how Fournette did against Bama too.
