Game 158: Corbin Solid in Low Scoring Coors Field Loss
Show Notes

The Nats lost 3-1 in Colorado as Patrick Corbin struck out nine in what could be his final start of the season.  Mark & Al evaluate Corbin as September has by far been his best month of his terrible season. How important will ending this year on a positive note be for the high priced lefty?  What are the chances he pitches Sunday vs. the Red Sox?

(15:27) Juan Soto went 0 for 4 and didn't reach base for the first time in two weeks.  He is now hitting .318; which trails Trea Turner (.325).  Should he maybe get the day off on Wednesday?

(20:40) Ryan Zimmerman had an excellent game on his 37th birthday.  He had a double, an infield single, and made a web gem catch in foul territory.  What insights do we have on if this weekend will be his final time at Nationals Park?

(29:44) A listener email asking about the Nationals organization infrastructure regarding player development.  Our conversation quickly then moves into the direction of Baseball Analytics.
