Substitute teacher puts on movie, movie blows up, classroom catches on fire, Mariners lose 4-3

I’m not saying it would have changed everything but it would have changed some things One of my least favorite things to do with baseball is to play the “what if” game. What if the Mariners had drafted Anthony Rendon instead of Danny Hultzen. What if they hadn’t lost the Night Court game in 2014. What if they had traded for Player X, or not traded Player X, signed Free Agent X or not signed Free Agent X. What if, what if, what if. Mostly I hate the “what if” game because it introduces a host of possibilities, not all of which will end up favorably. The Mariners could have...

His at bats were really good, he’s moving a lot better than what I anticipated...” - Davey Martinez on Anthony Rendon Before Rendon told Washington Post writer Chelsea Janes the...

Anthony Rendon hasn’t played in the majors since April 13th, but he’s coming off the DL after two rehab games with the Potomac Nationals.

The Nationals’ bullpen needs help, and they can get it cheap

It’s only April, but some middle-relief arms could provide the Washington Nationals with a much-needed boost. This is not how things were supposed to happen. It’s bad enough that the Washington Nationals are 10-13 — losers of four of their last five and eight of their last 12. A.J. Cole had such a rough start he had to be designated for assignment and was subsequently traded, both Adam Eaton and Anthony Rendon are on the disabled list and the bullpen owns the worst ERA in the National League at a startling 5.66. Factor in impressive starts from three of four division rivals and you...

They tried to avoid having to do it, but with Anthony Rendon still unavailable a week-plus after he fouled a pitch off the big toe on his left foot, he was placed on the 10-Day DL this afternoon.
