  1. Congratulations to Zach. The Nats should start now to look at him for third base. His bat and his glove profile well there and Rendon can stay at second since Espinosa is not showing signs of recovering his hitting.

  2. I love when apparent throw-away trades have a chance to work out. One gets a lottery ticket for a mid-season trade of Jason Marquis, and it seems that this ticket might at least pay a small prize.
