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...

Nats Journal: Nationals, Cubs reportedly talking Jordan Zimmermann

With a handful of key players eligible for free agency after the 2015 season, it’s hard — perhaps impossible — to imagine the Nationals keeping all of them beyond that. The Nationals have engaged three of those key players — Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister and Ian Desmond — in long-term extension talks in the past and haven’t been successful in inking any.

Tigers report card: Drew Smyly was a great fifth starter in 2014

Tigers report card: Drew Smyly was a great fifth starter in 2014

He had more fWAR than Doug Fister! One of the reasons why the Tigers were able to trade Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals is because of Drew Smyly. After a solid rookie campaign in which Smyly allowed a 3.99 ERA and 3.83 FIP in 99 1/3 innings, he spent all of 2013 in the bullpen. The starting rotation of Fister, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Anibal Sanchez, and Rick Porcello put up a record-setting 25.2 WAR. With all five players under club control for the 2014 season, it seemed like the group would get another chance to dominate the rest of the American League. Smyly would be...

Nats Journal: Washington Nationals’ options at second base

The Nationals’ offseason will remain open-ended, a system of levers and moving parts, until they arrive at decisions for how to handle Ian Desmond, Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister, the three stars with whom they engaged in contract extension talks last winter and are eligible for free agency after next season. It is a muddled picture, but the Nationals have one clear mission: They need to find a second baseman. Read full article >>

Tigers report card: Robbie Ray wasn't ready for stardom in 2014

This doesn't mean that he won't be an effective pitcher in the future, though. Aside from manager Brad Ausmus, Robbie Ray might have the most thankless job in Detroit. The centerpiece of the trade that sent Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals, Ray is going to be held to a very high standard throughout his Tigers career. Fans will have trouble recognizing his value, even if he puts up more WAR than Fister did in Detroit. So it comes as no surprise that people were unhappy when he failed to exceed expectations in...
