For my post today over at MASNSports.com, I take a look at yesterday’s hero, Laynce Nix. I’ve been meaning to analyze his success this season, but just hadn’t gotten around to it. After hitting a home run off Roy Oswalt and making the game-saving catch in the Nats 2-1 win, I figured now would be the perfect time.
Nix is a good story for the Nats so far. He’s far outplaying his projections and Continue reading
GM Mike Rizzo gave an interview to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal that was published yesterday, and the gist of the piece was that Rizzo was happy with how his Washington Nationals were playing except hitting with runners in scoring position. In fact, he said exactly that: "We’re playing terrific baseball except for the fact that we’re struggling with runners in scoring position.”Rizzo echoed the Continue reading
With Thursday night’s crushing 6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals record is one game below .500 at 18-19. They’ve accomplished this despite being dead last in the league in hitting. So how are they doing it? Primarily with decent starting pitching, (mostly) excellent relief pitching from a few key relievers, and improving defense. The team is 14-9 when not committing an Continue reading
The Washington Nationals currently sit in third place in the National League East, four and a half games behind the Philadelphia Phillies with a .500 record of 10-10 after 20 games, roughly one-eighth of the season. Their Pythagorean W-L (based on run differential) is 9-11, so on that hand the Nats’ record isn’t really an aberration.
Or is it?
The Nats have heavily loaded their wins with runs. Continue reading
Jayson Werth, the Washington Nationals $126 million dollar man, has struggled so far this season, to a slash line of .200/.302/.382 before the start of play Wednesday. He had an RBI in the first game of the double-header against the St. Louis Cardinals, just his third of the season and first that did not come on a solo home run.
In Philadelphia, it was widely acknowledged that Werth transformed Continue reading
Now that we’ve all dug out of this weeks’ snowstorm and steel ourselves for next week’s apocalyptic storm, let’s take a look at yesterday’s big news, the DFA of OF Justin Maxwell to make room for Todd Coffey on the 40-man roster.
Maxwell, 27, is a toolsy outfielder: tall and lean, strong and fast. He plays very good defense in centerfield, and has solid power — when he makes contact. That’s Continue reading
Where I bore you with some statistics with arbitrary end points…
In his last 133 plate apperances (dating back to Aug. 7 — 33 games), Adam Dunn is hitting .205/.323/.375 with 4 HRs and 14 RBIs. He’s struck out 42 times against 19 walks. That’s a pace over 162 games for 225 Ks. Eleven of his 23 hits over that time frame have been for extra bases so he has that going for him.
In the ten Continue reading
