    That wasn't a compliment to Hanigan...

    Projections miss more often than hit.

    Latos was a locker room problem, he needed to go.

    I don't think they are done yet. I've saw a lot of reports that they are chasing a 1B to slot in the cleanup spot.

    They're a lot closer than the Reds.

    Do they want a LH hitting 1B that plays 50 games a year and takes 3rd strikes? I think I can find one.

    As is, I think they are right there for a WC spot. Nationals are still the favorite for the division IMO.

    No, he wasn't. BP is the clubhouse problem.

    I love clubhouse problems. Since we all spend so much time in the clubhouse.

    I imagine the starting rotation to start the season will be Cueto, Bailey, Leake, Cingrani, DeSclafani

    I'm pretty sure the back end of the rotation is in the Gambino family.
