Speaking of playing centerfield, Victor Robles better get himself a whole bunch of new running shoes because he's gonna need 'em. Soto and Schwarber in the same outfield. Have to think the Nationals are 100% convinced there will be a NL DH in 2021. Or else they think their pitchers are going to strike out >35% of the batters that they will face.


The Nationals are going to be playing Schwarber at 1B and not in the OF so not sure why this would be an issue.

Uhh, if Schwarber is playing 1B, where is Josh Bell gonna play? No DH in the NL yet.

With this signing, we are now up to nine teams (Mets, Padres, Royals, Dodgers, Braves, Tigers, Blue Jays, Giants & Nationals) that have signed a free agent to a contract with at least a five million AAV.

Bell has played the OF before and probably rates out better than Schwarber does in the OF.

LOL, if you believe defensive metrics that's even worse. Bell played a total of 108 1/3 innings for the Pirates in right field in 2016 and had a -5 DRS (which is just awful for only 108 innings) and a -43.7 UZR/150. The eyeball test probably matched the numbers considering the Pirates never put him in the outfield again.

Both DRS & UZR have Schwarber's arm around +12 runs since 2017, so I'd imagine he will move to RF & Soto will stay in LF barring the return of the DH.

Where has this been said?

Pretty sure Kyle will be in LF, Bell is already at 1B.

Maybe so, but Bob Uecker with his tuba probably rates out better than either of them, so that's not saying much.
