espinosa's numbers are actually really impressive for a rookie.  he's brought his average up to .237 from about .200 a month ago.  if he ends up the year hitting .270 with 25 homers and 90 rbis, that's exceptional for a rookie in a pitching-dominated year.  also, his defense has been great and he's a hustler.  the nats needed someone exactly like espy to come along to build the franchise around.  with ramos still developing, stras coming back in september (hopefully), and bryce harper coming upo next year (probably), the nats have a solid nucleus of youth to build around.  they're finally turning a corner.

I wish I could find a job that pays me gazillions of dollars for doing what I'm supposed to do only 27% of the time.

if he ends up the year hitting .270

 ???

So, if you have a player that has 35 hits in 120 at bats over the course of the first couple months of the season, you take those 35 hits and divide them by 120 at bats. Calculators are perfect for this because they already put the average in decimal form. In this example, this player would have a .292 batting average. Batting averages are always calculated out to three digits, so be sure to round off that third number!

Didn't quite make your projections did he? .236/21hr/66rbi last year.

Think he'll get 30 rbi this year?

If you're going to dig up a thread, this is the thread to dig up:

Baltimore Orioles from April 2007 where Smackie, Pollard and Med took issue with Hoya's defense of Boswell saying that the O's were going to be good in 2009-2010.

3 game sweep of the sox. 

2nd best record in the mlb.

only problem? what a fucking brutal schedule they have.  al east for interleague play, and the nl east is stacked.  both divisions only have one team each below .500, and that's the red sox and the phillies.

SO happy the team got their first win in Fenway, won the series, and fucking swept them at home. So beautiful. Got to watch the game on Saturday, Ian Desmond is hands down my favorite player on the team. His hitting is absolutely on fire right now and LaRoche, Zim, and Bryce put some fucking weight into that line up. Real happy to see where they go this week with the Yanks comin into town this weekend.

Not to toot my own horn, but I knew that when they signed him last year, LaRoche was going to be huge for the team. That is, if he can stay healthy and not start the season traditionally cold at the plate. Dude has just been sick, sick, sick. Add Desmond, Bryce Harpy and Morse back, we got Murderers Row back in DC.

BEEEE-LEEEVE IT!

Those four are hitting  a combined .263 with 24 home runs in 620 at-bats. Murderers fow indeed!

Yeah.  Good thing they're not actually IN the AL East.  Phew.
