    Sam Freeman making his debut for LAA

    Voit has been on base 34 straight games. Is that True?

    Luke Voit – 3-4 vs SF. On base 38 straight games; hitting 14-15. Makes one wonder if he could have excelled under Shildt but not with orders to keep Carp at 1B.

    Matt Adams – walkoff homer for Wash in 11th. Another 1B who passed through the system and seems to do better with others.

    Greg Holland has now pitched 30-1/3 innings since leaving the Cards, and has allowed 2 earned runs. He’s struck out 39 and walked a far more acceptable 14. This year in Arizona, he’s yet to be scored on.

    Hopefully this year’s Cardinal bullpen can have all the fortune that the last couple teams have lost from crazy bad performances out of otherwise solid pitchers.

    Amazing what Voit has done as a Bomber. He is the AL player of the week. To think, all we had to do is play him, and the Goldy trade would not have been necessary.

    You wonder how we did not see him as anything but a 4A guy?

    Right now, the Marco for ONeill trade looks like a bust for St Louis.

    Voit extended his on base streak.

    BTW Grienke is a head case but that guy can pitch.

    MLB shows him 0 for 3 on April 2 with no walks, but he had a HBP that day.

    They don’t hold onto them for long in DC.

    When your star pitcher is 1-5 in the first month+ of the season it is rightfully the pitching coach that must go but actually the offense is the offender.

    It is a time-tested script in both college and professional sports. When the heat is turned up, assistants are the first to be sacrificed. If the pain doesn’t stop, the head man is next.

    Unless Strasburg fired him for the game starting last night while it was still drizzling, Lilliquist was probably made the example for the team’s poor start. They aren’t going to say that, but lacking any real facts, it seems the most likely reason.

    Yes, I agree. He was the scapegoat.

    Dave Martinez probably won’t make it much longer either if they continue their pitiful play.

    Why some of the writers act surprised like they don’t understand what is going on surprises me. The Nats are in fourth place with a losing record while the Phillies have claimed the high ground. I am not condoning or condemning, but I get it. Common sense.

    Not sure what to think about Lilliquist’s firing. Are the development/current status of pitchers like Rosenthal and Siegrist his fault? I don’t think so. I think overuse by the manager played a large role, and you can throw Maness in the mix also. On the development side, Siegrist was a one pitch pitcher when he had velocity, and Rosenthal was a 2 pitch pitcher. I thought Rosenthal had a good curve, but being a closer I understand his lack of use of it. Siegrist, on the other hand, I think might be still a viable reliever today still, if he had a secondary pitch.

    The main problem with the Nationals is the injury bug. They are playing without Zimmerman and Turner. That is like us losing both Goldschmidt and DeJong.

    Get those two back and they will look a lot better.

    Good article, Brian. It should very interesting to see where young Jaison will be drafted next month. In my mock draft, I have him being tabbed by Oakland in Round 3.
