Anybody remember how long the draft typically takes? Couple hours?

I remember it going pretty fast last year. Hour and a half or so. Don’t think it was even two hours long.

haha I kept luis severino by accident instead of kris bryant, and just noticed now. apparently I had severino pre-selected as a keeper a month ago instead of bryant.

too late to fix and I was on the fence about keeping severino or not, so I'll own up to my mistake and let bryant go.

What's the NA stash rule again? I can toss Luzardo on the NA list and then grab another player? But if Luzardo is called up, I gotta put him on my active roster and drop a guy to make room, correct?

haha, the best part was his birthday was yesterday.

he was embraced by the town, fans...etc. Rendon has been the best every day player on the team for over 4 years. I have moved past the point of hating on guys for leaving. he does seem like the perfect poster child for the entitled athlete. hopefully this might humble him a bit.

i'm not mad that he left, to be clear. they offered more money, right? hard to argue with that. but it's still funny

yeah no anger he left, it was a bummer because he does have an awful lot of talent. I expected him to be a lot better at this point.

Philly gave him 13 years/330 million
Washington offer 10 years/300 million

most of the money offered to Harper was deferred so it seemed like a "we're doing this to save face value but we don't really want you" kind of thing. which makes sense because Soto had already established himself and Robles was going to be ready the next year. they didn't need him

anyway just got a flight booked out to DC so... hype

who knows, shit's expensive, I just wanna be there since where I live nobody really cares. like I might just end up in the Bullpen or at Walter's or something. it's all gonna be very spur of the moment for me I think

DM on here the best way to let you know?

Bullpen is dope, you should go there...no doubt.

We are crunching numbers to see if we can come up if things go our way. worst case I will make a parade...hopefully.

that win really felt kind of like a loss, only in the sense that they are going to likely grind the starters down and get to the bullpen early. my nerves really get going when they come up prior to the 7th, just seen so many bad things happen.

this still feels like it's just building up for an epic letdown but it's been enjoyable so far at least. they beat cole and verlander so they should really try to wrap this up before facing them again. easy for me to say of course

that the problem with being a fan, it is hard to believe what you are seeing. my heart has been broken many times by different teams. this could be that Caps moment for me. that eventual breakthrough that floored me. I never expected baseball back in DC growing up. I never cared for the Orioles. the Braves AAA team was in my hometown. I enjoyed watching them, but never rooted for the Braves, was more a fan of players all over the league growing up.

so while this still feels new and a potential letdown awaits, I am stoked for the team. they really are just a easy group for anyone to root for. you never know the guys really, but it feels like they would be the types to grab a beer with and just have a good time.

i mean the number of stories that have been written about how much all of these guys seem to legitimately love each other - literally all of them - and that you've got people around the team often like fp who say things like "i have never seen a group like this" to that marlins clubhouse attendant who was like "this is one of the best groups i've ever seen" ... that you've got a national audience being exposed to the dance parties and the baby sharking and eaton and howie's driving and none of that is new, they've been doing all of that since june ... strasburg is smiling getting hugged in the dugout! strasburg!!

i mean i probably haven't watched sports as much as you guys but i've still watched a lot of sports and i've never seen a group like this. it's wild.

not to jinx anything because who knows, especially with that bullpen, like we weren't all getting nervous when javy couldn't pitch a clean ninth because i remember a game in april in which an 11-run lead turned into a save situation, but this feels like some team of destiny bullshit

but of course you know they're probably not going to win, because that would be silly.

you're not from dc (or a fan of the other dc teams) so you haven't had the pessimism ingrained in you like some of us haha. but who knows, with the caps finally winning i suppose anything is possible. except the football team, but fuck them anyway

and i don't want to sound disingenuous so i'll point out that i'd still prefer an O's win to a nats one, but since that aint happening in my lifetime i may as well enjoy this

it is true, it is true, you expect every good thing to turn bad, then the bad thing to turn drastically worse. like going up 3-0 and then losing 4-3 in a series. (lol yankees)

I was speaking for the rest of the national audience seeing what these guys are all about. there is no way you get this far without chemistry, talent and a bit of luck along the way. I just want 2 more wins, any damn way possible.

the bullpen is always a concern, I do trust Doolittle to close everything out. last night though I felt the urgency from the rest of the crew was a little lackluster after it was blown open.

O's...ewwwwwwww. also thanks for the skins burn, it only hurts when I think about how they have fallen. gonna go cry now.
