Lurch Was Golfing Behind Ryan Zimmerman When Dusty News Broke

When the Dusty Baker news broke last Friday, Lurch of The Sports Junkies just happened to be playing golf behind Ryan Zimmerman. Lurch relayed the story on 106.7 The Fan Monday morning. It’s funny, because I was playing golf on Friday out at River Bend in Great Falls, and two holes ahead of me, Ryan Zimmerman was playing. And this [story] broke at about — I don’t know — 11, 11:30. I was on like the third, fourth hole, whatever it was. I didn’t get to talk to him while we were...

Victor Robles makes perfect sense as the Washington Nationals’ next fourth outfielder

While the five-tool prospect may have a high ceiling, playing behind the Nats starting outfielders could go a long way in Victor Robles development. The Washington Nationals made the surprising move to call up top prospect Victor Robles in September, giving him a taste of the majors after an impressive season at Class-A Potomac and AA-Harrisburg. Despite only playing in 13 games, Robles raw talent was enough to convince the Nats to add him to their postseason roster for the NLDS.

Jake Arrieta has shaved and looks barely recognizable

Jake Arrieta has gone back to a clean-shaved look, and he is barely recognizable.Arrieta’s wife Brittany shared a photo on Twitter Sunday of her with her husband. The pitcher looks completely different. Compare that to this photo Brittany shared a week ago after the Chicago Cubs had beaten the Washington Nationals in the NLDS to advance to the NLCS. Arrieta will be a free agent this offseason and could be one of the most interesting cases. He won the Cy Young award with an absurd 2015...

So, Now What?

After Dusty Baker‘s firing, Barry Svrluga wrote a column for the Washington Post analyzing the Nationals’ decision to not retain him —and what it means for the next manager. In his article, Mr. Svrluga states the Baker departure is both surprising and understandable. Baker was somewhat of a polarizing manager. He is lauded for his handling players and the clubhouse—a dimension this team sorely needed after Matt Williams ham-handed approach. However, his in-game decisions,...
