The Nationals finally traded for bullpen help

David Robertson coming to the rescue of the Nationals bullpen has felt inevitable for months now. You knew that Mike Rizzo wouldn’t (read: couldn’t) leave the Nats pen as is, as it was an invitation to an(other) NLDS exit no matter how good the lineup or rotation were. They didn’t end up getting Robertson despite rumor after rumor suggesting that was the end point of all this. But that’s also fine because the Nats decided to get two relievers in one deal instead.

Should we cut Heyward some slack because the Cubs did manage to win a World Series with him around? Maybe a little, but again, they won in spite of him, and on Thursday they traded their top prospect (an outfielder) for Jose Quintana because the team as a whole just isn’t doing enough to keep up in the NL Central. To contradict the contradiction before concluding this paragraph, it’s still one more World Series than the Twins or Mariners or Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys Angels have won with the players who got them on this list, sooooo… yeah. There’s room for debate.

Jason Heyward’s deal should have been good. It actually seemed relatively reasonable at the time, with Heyward supposedly not even taking the highest offer because he believed in playing with and for the Cubs in their quest for a World Series. He was right on that last part, but Chicago won in spite of Heyward, not because of him: the Cubs actually did their best to keep him from contributing in the World Series at all by not playing him, as Heyward Wholesale Jerseys Cheap batted .230/.306/.325 in the regular season, “good” for an OPS+ of 70.

There was a lot of talk this spring about Heyward having a new swing that should heal what ailed him, and it did, sort of: now he has just an 84 OPS+ instead of being even worse, but that’s still a below-replacement bat that even his defense can’t save, especially not at $28 million.

It takes a solid matchup get fans excited for football on the day before Christmas

McDowell is going to give whichever team drafts him a lot of position and scheme versatility which means it’s going to be harder for a bad team to ruin him. If that bad team that drafts him and lines Website For Cheap Jerseys him up in the A gap a lot, I will likely pull all my dreads out.

I’m not knocking Michigan State for where they played McDowell, because I don’t know what their motivation was for putting him in the A gap. College teams are going to be focused on winning games more than showcasing guys for the NFL. If both happen to happen simultaneously, cool, but coaches who don’t win games but have a bunch of first- and second-round picks aren’t going to last as a coach very long these days.

It’s frustrating because I would have loved to have seen McDowell out as a five tech or even a three technique more.

It takes a solid matchup get fans excited for football on the day before Christmas, and this one fits the bill. Both teams have star power and should be competitive late in the season.

This game will be a candidate for least-watched evening game of the 2017 season, even with two strong fan bases. There are better ways to spend Christmas night than watching this one.

We also might start seeing a real run on the second-tier quarterbacks. Only three QBs got drafted on Day 2: DeShone Kizer in the second round, and Davis Webb and C.J. Beathard in the third round. Now that we’re in the final stretch, intriguing but flawed prospects like Joshua Dobbs, Nate Peterman, and Brad Kaaya could get drafted in spots where teams are more comfortable taking them.

Day 3 of the draft begins at noon ET on Saturday, with coverage at ESPN and NFL Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Network. Viewers can stream it online at WatchESPN and Watch NFL Network.
