Doug Fister’s busy, busy offseason

Doug Fister isn’t one to talk contracts. It’s not something he likes to worry about, preferring to shut out the Twitter banter including his name and disengage from the worry. Trade rumors are eddying around Fister, whose contract expires at the end of next season and he has not spoken to the Nationals about an extension […]

Nats Journal: Doug Fister’s busy, busy offseason

Doug Fister isn’t one to talk contracts. It’s not something he likes to worry about, preferring to shut out the Twitter banter including his name and disengage from the worry.Trade rumors are eddying around Fister, whose contract expires at the end of next season, has not spoken to the Nationals about an extension this offseason. He’s one of several key Nationals in that category, though he seems more determined than most to avoid concerning himself with front office machinations.Read full article >>

POLL Verdict Is In: Improve Red Sox Rotation!

The voice of our readers is pretty clear. As the chart shows, almost three-quarters of those voting (73%) say they are not "OK" with the current composition of the Red Sox rotation. Just 27% are satisfied with the way the starters look at present. Clearly, Ben Cherington needs to make at least one more pitching move—either trading for Cole Hamles, Doug Fister or Jordan Zimmerman or signing free-agent James Shields. Soon.

Did the Tigers give up on Robbie Ray too early?

Robbie Ray was acquired to replace Doug Fister in the rotation. His career with the Tigers lasted only nine games. When Dave Dombrowski dumped Doug Fister for Robbie Ray, Ian Krol, and Steve Lombardozzi, the baseball world collectively scratched its head. Dombrowski has a long history of good trades -- including poaching Fister from Seattle -- and at first glance this just did not make sense. Doug Fister had established himself as a well-above-average starting pitcher. Robbie Ray had barely cracked the top 100 prospect list. Ian Krol had pitched about 30 mediocre innings above Double A....

Nats Journal: Could the Nationals make a play for a free agent starter such as Max Scherzer?

Let’s first establish this: The Nationals don’t need a starting pitcher. The rotation of Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister, Gio Gonzalez and Tanner Roark was the best in baseball last season by many measures — ERA, FIP, WAR, take your pick — and (barring a trade) will return for 2015 after forming the backbone of a division-title winning team. Even if the Nationals make no moves this winter, they will be in position to repeat as NL East champions in a division that has no clear or significantly improved challenger. Keeping the title-contending rotation together for...
