Valentin is horrible.

He swung at a horrible pitch and then took strike 3. Probably just cost Freel another chance at the cycle.

Not necessarily disagreeing but weren't the Nats only 2.5 games out of first going into this series and missing Wilkerson and Vidro? Let alone 2 lefty pitchers?

Ah I see Wilkerson is playing - nevermind about that then.

All I know is that if Bowden is dumb, DanO is dumber.

Even with Guzman, Bowden spent his offseason money more wisely, IMO.

Getting Guillen in a trade for basically nothing trumps any move DanO has done to date.

That's the thing, the Nats have a bunch of pitching, a lot of it's good. Pitching's not really the problem. Bowden had light lifting to build a winner, frankly. All he had to do was get offense, supposedly his strong suit.

And come on, if all you're missing is one starter and your offense is this bad, then your offense is this bad. Unless that starter's Bonds, I have no sympathy for that plight. Heck, throw Vidro in and this team is still well in the lower 1/4 of all offenses in the Majors.

I liked the Aurilia signing as well.

However, I didn't realize it would cause Miley to completely, totally, and positively lose his mind and think Rich is the second coming of Honus Wagner.

Ok, pitching gurus. Marty is observing Coffey's fastball hitting 93 consistently again, and I also noticed Milton was working in the low 90s again like we expected on Monday night. Harang was working in the 90-93 range in his last starter. In fact, I've seen most picking up a few MPH lately. Theories?

Well, I didn't defend DanO, did I? I'm just sayin' the Revisionist History Society of the Upper Plains has made it their mission to say "ubi sunt" where go the glory days of our fearless and impeccable leader James Aloysius Bowden, Conqueror of the Whale-Road.

A little perspective never hurt anybody.

And come on, if all you're missing is one starter and your offense is this bad, then your offense is this bad. .

Give him a little more time, and I think he'll build the offense up. He did pretty good with the Castilla signing which was almost universally canned (Vinny has a 832 OPS). The Guillen trade was good. I lost track of his various OF trades.
Guzman is a stinker so far offensively, but at least he gives them good D (unlike Aurilla, although I know there's the cost factor).

Bowden came in with a bare farm system and a team that FA really didn't want to come to. They were a lot like the Reds in some respects. Bowden tried to go after some better 3b, but they turned him down. He tried to get Perez as a FA, but was turned down as well. (Maybe DanO also went after the same guys too.. it's hard to tell, since he's so tight lipped).

But Bowden's team so far has improved in the standings from the previous years. DanO's has gotten worse with a bigger budget. That's truly a dubious feat DAnO pulled off. I know you aren't a big fan of DanO, but at this point, I'd much rather have old leather pants back.

I have been wondering that myself. Even Claussen was in the low 90's yesterday. I don't know if they re-calibrated the guns there, or if there has been some sort of adjustment Miley has made, or if Graves was just cursed and dropping him returned the MPH, but it just makes you feel more confident.

Harang was working in the 90-93 range in his last starter. In fact, I've seen most picking up a few MPH lately. Theories?Milton was throwing harder. However, I thought he also threw a lot more breaking stuff, which was the key. I still don't see a big turnaround ahead for Milton. Most teams are not as overly aggressive as the Gnats.

Coffey said he came to ST with a weaker arm because of pitching in the AFL.

Harang has had his velocity in the low 90's most of the season.

Biggest key may be warmer weather.

I still think it has to do with a mental obsession with "pitch to contact". The pitchers have not only thrown harder over the last few games, but they also seem much more relaxed on the mound. I think they are finally starting to get the "pitch to contact" sound out of their heads. What happens happens, but it doesn't have to be a forced strategy.

Yeah, I know, you're definitely not a fan of DanO :).. I'm just saying Bowden doesn't look so bad compared to the Clown we have. I really think that if the Nats keep him around, they'll get incrementally better every year, provided the budget is decent.

Just saying that Bowden inherited a big mess, and has improved it. I don't think anyone could fix the Nats in one winter.

Bowden most certainly did not inherit a mess. He inherited a very good pitching staff. Any time you do that, you're not inheriting a mess.

DanO inherited a mess; and it's still a mess.
