Yes, we’re still here. It’s just really, really slow.
Just don’t tell Josh Jackson and MiLB.com, who’ve gone Lake Wobegon in calling the Nationals farm system “solid.” Because all “strong” farm systems have signed-as-free-agents as their best 1B, 2B, DH, and RHP and traded away their top 3B and LHP.
Clearly, Mr. Jackson is the kid we all knew in high school who had a $1,000 stereo (a.k.a. Victor Robles) in a $500 car, but thought it was a sweet ride.
Maybe something else will break in the next couple of days, but I doubt it. Until then, please continue to keep the hot stove going in the comments…
