***There is no Interleague Today (Sept.01)
Dan Otero is piling up wins at an alarming rate. So much so that I wonder out loud again if anyone could ever catch Jack Chesbro’s 41 win season if they did so as a middle reliever.
That and why teams should be nervous to deal with Tampa Bay in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Sam Fuld, Clayton Kershaw, Drew Smyly, Buster Posey, Dernard Span, Phil Hughes, Zack Wheeler and Chris Carter all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
Well, probably. I don’t know for sure how good you think the Nationals offense is, but I’m speaking more to the general population here. Just bear with me.
Moving on, looking at the Nationals rate stats it paints a seemingly bleak picture. The team average, not including pitchers, is a .260/.329/.403 slash line, a .324 wOBA and a meager 4.28 runs per game. Coming from the steroid fueled offensive funfest that was the early 2000’s that looks absolutely terrible. But spoiler alert, it isn’t the early 2000’s anymore and the game has changed a lot on the offensive side.

Sam Fuld got 3 hits including a double and a 2 run 9th inning go ahead homer that completed Oakland’s 5-4 comeback in Houston.
Drew Smyly threw 7 strong innings, allowing just 2 hits and a run on a solo homer, earning Tampa Bay’s 3-1 victory in Baltimore.
Buster Posey threw out a runner, collected a go ahead RBI single and then launched a 2 out, bottom of the 9th walk off homer, as the Giants topped Colorado 4-2.
Clayton Kershaw was his usual brilliant self, pitching 8 dominant innings, allowing 1 unearned run, striking out 10 Diamondbacks and walking just 2 and winning his 16th decision for the Dodgers, 3-1.
