Good start for the Nats. Stephen Strasburg pitched into the seventh inning and only gave up one run. Most of Cincinnati’s runs came in garbage time against the janitorial staff.
It’s so good to see Adam Eaton back and leading off for Washington after that tough injury last season that really changed the complexion of Washington’s season. Eaton went 5-for-5 yesterday in the 13-run effort.
Matt Adams also smacked his first homer in a Washington uniform on Saturday. He figures to provide some power in the middle of a lineup that has lacked some raw man-power in recent seasons.
Now Gio Gonzalez picks it up again, making his first start of 2018. He’s been a steady, consistent figure in the world of starting pitching for a long time now. Yet, he continues to be generally under-appreciated.
Cincinnati didn’t really make any improvements to a pitching staff that has been terrible for the last few seasons and just doesn’t look like it’s going to develop into much at all at this point.
The rotation is made up of a bunch of prospects who haven’t totally busted but who have pretty much seen the writing on the wall based on the start to their major league careers. It’s probably time for the Reds to move on from some of these guys.
Of course, the Reds still have Joey Votto and he will be responsible for 5-10 of what should be about 75 wins for this team this season.
There won’t be any playoffs for Cincinnati this season; the pitching still isn’t much closer to being acceptable than it was a couple of season ago; and the rebuild still has a long way to go.
