Good point on Harper, and I agree that no one would be hitting Nats pitching in this series, but I think the Braves may have been able to win one of the three games so far.
I know Harper's only been in Philly one year and they have other good players, so maybe that big deal will work out. The Padres have some great young talent and a good farm system, so maybe the Machado money will pay dividends at some point, but the Dodgers should continue to dominate that division another year or two.
Is it just my imagination or are we actually running more to the right this year?
Nelson is absolutely deadly when he pulls, but Glow and Smith both appear to be holding their blocks better this year on straight runs even without Nelson trapping.
I haven't seen this twist on here yet:
QB (Lamar Jackson - duel threat to eliminate need for top RB)
LT (protect the QB)
C (strength and line calls up the middle)
WR (keeps defenses honest)
DE (pass rush and set the edge)
MLB (defensive QB)
DT (run stuffer)
Basically, strong up the middle on offense and defense.
if we beat houston i will start believing this team can make a run as constructed. i actually think its easier to find a good qb than it is to build a great team around them
texans are our main rival right now. not NE or the rest of the division imo. they are getting very good play from watson, he is on fire lately
