Anthony Rendon is starting to get the timing and flow of hitting back! Today and yesterday he had great at-bats, he was grinding them out, seeing a lot of pitches! He did the same today, patiently looking for a good pitch to hit and not swinging at bad ones.
Jason Werth and Willy Ramos are getting more good at bats now too. The homer Ramos hit today was mammoth!
I’m puzzled however over why the team called up Trea Turner and they haven’t put him in the starting lineup at least once! That is not good managing; the kid has been starting in the minors for most of the year and now he is in the Nats dugout, but only getting an at-bat here or there. If that is all there are going to let him do, they should send him back to Syracuse where he can play every day and stay sharp. Matt Williams ought to know better.
I hope Rendon stays at 3B. He is way better there than Escobar. Put him at 2B.
