I was glad to see the Nats make a tough decision as the NL East competition heats up. Sending the veteran Doug Fister to the bull-pen showed in favor of keeping Joe Ross in the starting rotation is a clear sign the front office is serious about the run for the playoffs. Starting Danny Espinosa at SS the other day was a similar indication. And the move to start Robinson at first base yesterday worked well as did sending Ryan Zimmerman in the pinch-hit late in the game!
Baseball is a very fickle game, but yesterday “the gods” were smiling on the Nats:)
