2018 Instructions

Third place in last year’s Central Division got the Nats into the playoffs, but they were easy to spot as the team that did not belong there.  Starting pitching is going to be fine at home but interesting on the road. 

But it’s okay, because … our golf course is better than yours.

Platoon / Injury


Positions:

C:     Ramos is the better player, but does not start in the standard vs Rightys due to low AB. Hedges is the other guy.

1B:    Carpenter is the main guy, and starts against all Rightys.  Trumbo will play 1B against Leftys.  Carpenter is better on D so Trumbo won’t play much.

2B:    Phillips starts every game.  Walker or Diaz if Phillips is injured.

SS:   Diaz and Riddle platoon, sort of, Riddle is better D and Diaz better offense.

3B:    Turner starts most lineups, Walker against the tough righty.

OF:   Martinez plays all the time in RF and Braun plays all the time in LF and plays all the time.  Fowler starts every game in CF. Hamilton will come in for Fowler any time we are leading or tied in the late stages of a game, preferably as a double switch or after Fowler bats.  Gamel is a PH and possible injury substitute

Starter Comments:

These guys come out when in dots if it is still a game.  I am trying to get the starters through at least 6 when not in dots. If were blown out, let them go for a while to save the pen, if it is still a game, yank them.

Chacin

Only out before the sixth if he is in dots. Better vs Rightys, but so is the pen so he can pitch the 7th.  Can hit for him in the 6th or later if he is behind by 4 runs, or behind 2 or 3 with ducks on the pond.  Can pull him in bottom of 7th or later if he is in trouble and behind.

Hendricks

Balanced Card. Only out before the sixth if he is in dots. Prefer to hit for him in top of 7th or 8th. Can hit for him in the 6th if he is behind by 4 runs, or behind 2 or 3 with ducks on the pond.  Can pull him in bottom of 5th thru 7th if he is in trouble. Only pitches 8th or 9th if rolling.

Lynn

Same guidance as Hendricks.  But not balanced.  Super against rightys but not vs leftys.

Maeda

Same guy as Lynn.  Will start 12 times and then be in the pen.

Samardzija

More balanced than most, lefty homers will cost him a few games.  18 starts.  Pull him based on Hendricks guidance

Innings limitations:

Rea NEVER pitches in the 7th (even with a perfect game).  If he comes to bat after pitching 5 (or 6), hit for him.

BULLPEN  Roles will be complex, lots of situational skills will make it all a committee

Parker

67 IP

Closer. Can come in during the 8th and look for the six out save.

Yates

57

Alternate closer v Right.  Or Stopper vs Right earlier in the game in a critical spot. Leftys crush him so don’t use him as a closer against lefty power. 

Robles

57

Set up,   Solid in parks with low diamonds, less useful in parks with high diamonds.

Cole

52

Set-up – v Right.  Can also MOP.  Leftys will hurt him, he can mop against them but should not be beaten in a close game by them.

Clippard

60

Set up balanced.  Not great but fine.

McCarthy

93

Set up versus Leftys, and MOP.  93 innings, he is the guy to eat innings if we have to do it.

Maeda

lots

He is in the pen if not starting your series.
