In case anyone was wondering, I am still alive:) I’m extremely busy with trying to sell my house, however. Hoping to move across town to Gaithersburg, Md, closer to my grandkids.
I have been keeping an eye on the Nationals. I am not nearly as “all in” that they are a lock to get to the World Series as the media appears to be! The reasons for my scepticism revolve around the following:
- their poor post-season results in recent years;
- I am not convinced their offense is as good as most appear to expect;
- their new bull-pen has yet to prove itself as post-season-ready.
- the makeup of the bench is not at all clear this early in Spring-Training.
Having said that, I do think they will win 90-94 games and the division title. The starting pitching will be awesome, Ryan Zimmerman will be fine at first-base, Rendon will be the star that we all expect, Cabrera at 2B will be average, Harper will be no better than many other average corner-outfield sluggers, Desi will continue to be one of the very best shortstops in the game.
