as a nationals fan, can't really explain how excited I am. this is great for baseball as a whole, too.

let's hope he can be as dominant as he was before the injury.

I am a Phillies fan and hope that he comes back better than before if that is possible. I love dominate pitchers. He's been throwing well from what I hear and I hope he follows the path of guys like Carpenter, Josh Johnson, Hudson, Wagner, etc. who only get better.

I am also looking forward to them bringing up that punk Bryce Harper next year. ;)

The guy is nasty, but theres no way I would rush him back this year. Yeah it's nice to get some big league work in, but when you have stuff like he does he doesn't really need it. No need to risk it.

The NL East is set to have some crazy good young pitchers next year.

And some crazy good old pitchers still as well.

Nah. He's already throwing in the minors so what does it matter if they bring him up to the majors? It'll be a nice confidence boost considering he'll be the opening day starter. They followed the same path with Jordan Zimmermann and he turned out just fine(no one knows about Zimmermann except Nats fans but he's been one of the better pitchers all year). Zimmermann had TJ surgery and was pitching in the majors less than a year later if I remember correctly.

We'll see if he can cool a very hot Dodger team.

It should be one hit allowed, too... Ian Desmond let an easy ground ball roll right under his glove and for some reason I don't understand he wasn't given an error for it.

He was hitting 96-97 MPH with the occasional 99MPH fastball.

All on 56 pitches too.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
