Mike Rizzo Answers Your Questions
Earlier during the day for #IYNT, we gave you the chance to ask Nationals GM Mike Rizzo questions about the team via Twitter. Here were his responses to some of your best queries.
What’s the long term plan for 1B and CF?
We have a lot of in-house possibilities at both positions. At first base, Adam LaRoche, Michael Morse, Tyler Moore and Chris Marrero. In center field, Bryce Harper, Eury Perez, Brian Goodwin and Michael Taylor.
Which player the team could NOT make it w/o this yr! Thanks!! GO NATS!!
Besides front of the rotation starters, Ian Desmond is possibly the most indispensable starter on the field.
Is he surprised to have his team leading the National League on July 3, 2012?
I wouldn’t use the word surprised. Pleased, especially with all the injuries that we’ve had.
