The Washington Nationals have announced their roster for the NLDS against the Giants. It breaks down thusly:
Twelve pitchers, including Rafael Soriano who had a 7.56 ERA in September and has looked awful in low-leverage situations. But no Ross Detwiler. Also: no Scott Hairston, though he was pretty crappy in the second half so it makes some sense.
Not that these are huge issues. If it comes down to a situation where having Ross Detwiler is important, a lot of things have gone wrong for Matt Williams before then. And it’s not like Kevin Frandsen can’t do most of what Hairston would likely be called on to do in a playoff game.
