  1. This is not the first time I’ve mentioned this, but it’s still true 2-3 weeks later. Freitas is a man among boys at Vermont, and Nieto hasn’t hit his weight all season, and still the F.O. has them stuck in the same place.
    Oduber is another great story; he had a lot of leverage when the Nats drafted him and they obviously payed way over slot to sign him. He’s just overmatching everyone in the GCL.

    • I’d agree that Nieto and Freitas ought to swap, but then again – I thought that about Moore and Bloxom, so…

  2. Re: VT (overall) – With Moore having a SLG below .300, he’d better have speed to burn. Miller seems like a versatile player that might be worth keeping in the system for a while as well. Kelso & Freitas are posting really nice offensive numbers, but I’d like to see that team stay reasonably intact this year, and maybe give the fans in VT a shot at League Championship.
