Best of times, worst of times. Clutch bomb from Adam Lind, but the Nats feebly failed to capitalize on one scoring opportunity after another. Werth in particular looked terrible. Pitching should be solid enough, but it will be a long season without a consistent offense.

Marlins 4 @ Nats 6.


Marcel Ozuna 2 run single in the first put the Fish up early, but Ryan Zimmerman would get 1 back in the bottom half with his first home run of the year. Nats would take the lead for good in the 4th: Harper double scored Eaton to tie it, Daniel Murphy single scored Harper to take the lead, and Matt Weiters would drive in 2 later in the inning for his first RBI as a Nat. Harper single to score Eaton in the 5th put them up 6-2 and finished their scoring for the night. JT Realmuto had the final 2 RBI's of the night: a home run in the 8th and an RBI single in the 9th. Tanner Roark (1-0) allowed 2 runs on 3 hits with 2 walks (and 2 hit batters) with 6 strikeouts. Joe Blanton (1st hold) & Oliver Perez (1st hold) combined to finish the 8th after Enny Romero put the first 3 batters on and they combined to allow 0 runs on 1 hit with 0 walks and 1 strikeout. Treinen (2nd save) allowed 1 run on 2 hits with 0 walks and 2 strikeouts to close out the 2nd win of the year.


Finale games on Thursday. Gio Gonzalez (11-11, 4.57 last year) takes the ball for the Nats while Tom Koehler (9-13, 4.33) starts for the Marlins. Game time at 4:05.

Marlins 4 @ Nats 3 (10 innings).


Adam Eaton homered in the first and Jayson Werth homered in the 7th to put the Nats up 2-0 after 7 where the Marlins tied it in the 8th on a J.T. Realmuto 2 run homer. Zimmerman homer in the bottom of the 8th put the Nats back in front 3-2. Ex-Nat Tyler Moore had the game-tying double off of Treinen in the 9th to force extra innings, and Justin Bour had the game-winning double in the 10th. Gio Gonzalez scattered 7 hits through 6 shutout innings with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts. Koda Glover (1st hold) pitched a scoreless 7th inning with 0 walk, 0 strikeouts and 1 hit allowed. Shawn Kelley (1st blown save) allowed 2 runs on 1 hit (1 homer) with 1 walk and 1 strikeout. Sammy Solis (2nd hold) allowed 1 run on 1 hit with 1 walk and 0 strikeouts in 2/3 of an inning. Blake Treinen (1st blown save) had 1 hit and 1 strikeout in 1/3 of an inning to close out the 9th. Joe Blanton (0-1) allowed 1 run on 3 hits with 0 walks and 0 strikeouts in 7 innings. Tom Koehler allowed 1 run on 4 hits (1 homer) in 5 innings with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts. David Phelps (1-1) allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in a scoreless 9th inning while AJ Ramos (1st save) had 1 walk, 1 strikeout and 1 hit to close out the Marlins first win of the season.


Nats head up 95 to Philadelphia to start a 3 game series with the Phillies beginning on Friday. Vince Velasquez (8-6, 4.12 last year) starts for the Phillies while Max Scherzer (20-7, 2.96) starts for the Nats with a game time slated for 3:05 since it is the Phillies home opener. Marlins also head up 95 and will go to Queens to play a 3 game series in Flushing against the Metropolitans.

Harper 2 run homer (1st), Murphy 2 run homer (3rd) and Werth 3 run homer (5th) put the Nats up 7-0. Odubel Herrerra singled home the Phillies first run in the 6th, Freddy Galvis doubled home the 2nd run in the 7th, Aaron Altherr had a 2 run homer in the 7th while Galvis added 2 more RBI's with a 2 run homer in the 9th. Vince Velasquez (0-1) finished with 4 runs on 5 hits (2 homers) with 3 walks but 10 strikeouts in 4 innings of work. Max Scherzer (1-0) allowed 2 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts.

They are about to lose the series to the Phillies, SMFH!


Since they took a 7-0 lead after 5 innings on Friday, they've been outscored 26-3 the final 22 innings of that series. Embarrassing!

About 5 minutes after I had posted this Zimmerman ended up hitting a 3 run homer to tie it, but they lost it in the next half inning on a Cesar Hernandez single. It's 6 games but this bullpen looks absolutely horrendous! And I can't believe Rizzo sat on his hands and did nothing to fix it! And Jeremy Guthrie in his first major league start since 2015 failed to make it out of the first inning Saturday, so the bullpen is already gassed and we aren't even 5% of the way through the season . 3 game series vs. the Cardinals, who they seem to NEVER beat commences on Monday. Tanner Roark (1-0, 3.00) starts for the Nats and he'll be opposed by Adam Wainwright (0-1, 3.60), Tuesday the Cardinals hand the ball to Lance Lynn (0-0, 3.38) while the Nats counter with Gio Gonzalez (0-0, 0.00) and Wednesday Mike Leake (0-1, 1.13) gets the ball and he'll be opposed by Max Scherzer (1-0, 2.70). Monday & Tuesday night games begin at 7:05 while Wednesday will be a Wednesday matinee affair beginning at 4:05.

I would counter that Rizzo did exactly the right thing with the bullpen over the winter. The Nats made credible plays for Melancon, Jansen, Chapman, and Colome, but backed off in each case when the prices simply got too high as against the club's other needs -- such the need to acquire a catcher, and the need to plan for the likely departure of Jayson Werth at some point in 2017.

Closers, after all, are much like pop-up restaurants -- they come and go, sometimes without much if any warning at all. I'm not sure that Shawn Kelley could handle the long-term workload, but there is nothing as of April 10 to say that Treinen, Glover, or even Enny Romero will not emerge as a competent closer carrying a low price tag. Getting more (or as much) for less is often how titles are won.

Do they have the fireworks yet to celebrate Werth's departure?

After being hollowed out by years of MLB mismanagement, Werth put a moribund Nationals franchise on the credibility map by signing a 7-year, $126 million contract in December 2010. He was a bust in 2011 (his age-32 season) and suffered a broken wrist early the next year. He has been a pillar for the club ever since. If he leaves, whether now or later, he will be missed.
