  1. C. all of that above!

  2. Ian Desmond is also a fan favorite and a “clubhouse leader”. Two more completely superfluous reasons to give a player an important role in the everyday line up.

    Steve Lombardozi’s been kicking tail in spring training so far though, so hopefully Davey Johnson is just given Desmond enough rope to hang himself and make an unpopular switch more palatable.

  3. Who exactly is Ian Desmond a fan favorite with, though? We all know he sucks.

  4. I’m not sure what fans he’s talking about.

    Take a poll of Nats fans, and Desmond is universally hated.

  5. A short fielder would lower Galvis’ BABIP by 0.667

  6. How is it possible that you didn’t include video or even make a mention of Anthony Gose stealing every base possible, including home, in a single inning, for a game winning run?

  7. Ian Desmond gets a lot more flack from the fans than Danny Espinosa does. But other than a hot start in September 2010 (that quickly cooled) and after a couple of decent months in early 2011, Espinosa has been at least as much of a liability as Desmond. Further, if you look at the “laggard” board, one of the few players that trails Desmond is … Espinosa. Espinosa’s whiff average this spring is .385!

    Lombardozzi and (by September) Rendon may be pushing someone out of the infield this year, but the pushee may not be Desmond.
