Oiling the glove

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader wanted to note that this past Sunday was that glorious first sign of spring. The day pitchers and catchers report for spring training. That means that baseball season will soon be upon us.

Now, in your Maximum Leader’s mind it is still hockey season. But since the hockey season hasn’t been going well for your Maximum Leader’s beloved Washington Capitals; he is already beginning to idly speculate about his equally beloved Washington Nationals and how they will do this season.

Your Maximum Leader is feeling good about the Nats this season. So good that he thinks that they will win between 85-90 games. They will likely finish 2nd or 3rd in the NL East. (NB: your Maximum Leader’s NL East prediction: Philly, Washington, Florida, Atlanta, NY Mets.) He predicts that the Nats will win 85-90 games. They may contend for a playoff spot (wild card of course).

It should be a good summer for baseball in DC.

Carry on.

Yes, indeedy, although my prediction was a bit more ambitious - 85 to 95 wins. I just get such a good mojo (projecting much?) that I think they may pull off some extra W’s. I agree with your standings prediction and also think we’ve got a shot at the wild card.

That kid Strasburg is something special, providing he doesn’t throw so hard he throws his damned shoulder/arm/elbow out every year and just flame out like Mark Prior…

You are correct Ben. I hope the doesn’t ruin his arm. I know that the Nats are limiting his innings to have him build strength, so we’ve got that going for us. We will not repeat the Cubs mistake of just “letting him throw.”
