Olney On Nationals, Hardy, Mets

ESPN.com's Buster Olney compares two of the game's best pitchers, Felix Hernandez and Zack Greinke, before providing us with some rumors:

  • Olney hears the Nationals will consider former MLB manager Buck Showalter when they select the team's permanent field manager.
  • J.J. Hardy will likely see lots of time at shortstop before the season ends. Olney guesses that the Brewers are trying to raise his trade value going into the offseason.
  • One GM tells Olney that the Mets have a few elite players, some unmoveable ones and not much minor league depth. This means the team may have to spend heavily to compete. 
  • Here's Tim's take on the Mets and here's Jon Heyman's.
