WHY THE NATS HAVE TO MAKE A TRADE BY TOMORROW!

Says ESPN:

The Braves can be caught — assuming Max Scherzer’s upper back strain that forced him to the injured list doesn’t become a long-term thing — but it’s hard to envision this team going deep in the playoffs with its present bullpen, even with a healthy Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Stephen Strasburg headlining a rotation that has dominated of late.

The added pressure on GM Mike Rizzo and manager Dave Martinez (above) is that they missed the playoffs last season.

The Nationals, of course, have made the playoffs four times since 2012 and have lost all four times in the division series.

Rizzo signed an extension that runs through 2020, and Martinez’s contract also runs through 2020 (with a 2021 club option), but a second consecutive non-playoff season would likely put the jobs of both in jeopardy.
