What Say You?

Barry Svrluga is running ("Ran" I s'pose) a Guess The Rotation contest. For the record, I'll go with Patterson, Hill, Williams, Redding, Traber.

Two more interesting questions occurred to me, and I'm interested to see who you'd say.

1) What 5 Nationals pitchers will have the most starts? Follow-up: can you name the 5 with the most starts in '05 or '06? I'll post the answer in the comments.

2) Who's going to be the All-Star rep? Yes, we've already inked in the singular tense of that question. Follow-up: Can you name the All-Star reps from '05 and '06?


  • 2006:

    All-Star: Soriano


    All-Stars: Cordero, Livan


    I got the starters in the right order for '05, but missed Drese. He had a few more starts than my guess, Ohka.

  • All-Star picks, in descending order of probability:

    1. Zimmerman
    2. FLop
    3. Patterson
    4. Kearns

  • I'd say Zimmerman, but there are so many good 3B in the league -- even in our division -- that it might be hard to find a spot for him.

    I'd go with either Cordero (they always find a spot for relievers from bad teams) or Lopez.

  • Needham brings up a good point. I'd say Zim to start, but Cordero as a backup.

  • (allright, writing down my guesses without looking what others posted)

    AS Reps: Livan, Cordero
    Most Starts: Livan, Loaiza, Patterson, Okha, Day??

    AS Rep: Soriano
    Most Starts: Livan, Ortiz, Armas Jr., Astacio, O'Connor, (I cannot believe how hard this is to remember -- O'Connor's gotta be wrong, but I sure as hell wasn't going to write down Zach Day)

    It's hard to pick Zimm 'cause NL third base is so loaded, but I will (otherwise would have gone with Kearns).
    Most Starts: Patterson, Traber, Redding, Simontacchi, Williams

  • So who chooses if a team doesn't get enough fan votes for one of its players? Does that usually go to a pitcher then, since they're not picked by fans? Because honestly, if it comes down to a token Nat, which it probably will, how could it not be Zimm?
