Marrero is buried deeper than Jimmy Hoffa. Absent LaRoche the Nats would play Tyler Moore at 1B most days, unless they gave up on Zim’s arm and moved him across the diamond. And that’s assuming they didn’t just decide Rendon was ready to play every day and move Zim for that reason. A LaRoche trade or injury might get him called up, but it’s going to take at least two subtractions to get Marrero regular playing time.
YEah…it sucks and it seems that way. Especially the way LaRoche is playing this year. Not to mention he has “back” issues. If I’m the Nats he would end up on a phantom DL stint right about now as bad as he is playing. He’s a disaster this year.
