Chris Marrero Sticking Around, Tyler Moore Demoted to AAA

It looks like Nene has bleached his skin and cut his hair.

After a series of moves this weekend, the Nationals have called up and decided to stick with Chris Marrero, while also deciding to send Tyler Moore down to AAA.

It’s an abrupt cancellation for the once merry Tyler Moore Show, which had become very un-merry with a terrible performance this season. It had reached its peak with a well written RBI hit in the NLDS last season, but this season had just been full of disappointment. I don’t know what changed, whether it was a new writing staff or what. But he’s jumped the Shark, who is also experiencing a lousily written season.

Chris Marrero is the closest thing anyone has to Eli Marrero and that’s good enough for a roster spot. Nepotism is a powerful force in the game of baseball. So powerful that somehow that local kid Jack is on my son’s little league team just because his dad is the manager,¬†DESPITE only 2 hits all season. What a useless 6 year old.

Back Off My Diamond: Diamondbacks Exterminated From Nationals Park as Nats Win Series

I don’t understand why Ross Detwiler pitches with a mouth full of vinegar.

Final Score: Nationals 2, Diamondbacks 1

Dame of the Game:

Ross Detwiler: 6.1 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 2 K. The kind of line that makes John Lannan call his mother and weep into the phone for hours.

Shame of the Game:

Danny Espinosa: 0-3, 2 K. Danny Espinosea smells the putridity of his own performance but doesn’t seem to mind it. Probably not coincidentally, he also smells the toilet bowl after he poops.

Bryce Harper plays Major League Baseball like it’s Little League, which is not too surprising given that he was in Little League pretty recently. He continued to demonstrate this on Thursday evening, most noticeably on a play in the bottom of the 6th innning. Harper had just doubled in the go-ahead run, and stood on second base with one out. Jayson Werth hit a sharp ground ball to third, and after Ryan Roberts released his throw to first Harper did that thing you do in Little League when you’re pretty sure the other team isn’t going to make two good throws in a row and ran to third. He made it, following the old axiom “never make the first or last out at third but do run to third if you’re going to be safe.”¬† Continue reading
