MLB: Texas Rangers at Washington Nationals Patrick McDermott-USA TODAY Sports

This. Bullpen. Will. Be. The. Death. Of. Us. All.

That’s all:

Adam Eaton says he is "ahead of schedule"
Eaton used crutches to walk on Sunday, but apparently didn't really need them, which puts him ahead of schedule for his recovery time.

Anthony Rendon: Baseball's most underrated star
The Nationals never quite knew where to put Anthony Rendon in his first years with the club, and because of that, he never quite had an everyday position until 2016. Because of that, the world hasn't always known about him.

Joe Blanton pitched a scoreless inning of relief in his first game back.

Boswell: Scherzer could be generational talent with help of bullpen
Max Scherzer could match up with the all-time greats. To do that, he'll need some help from the back end of the bullpen.

Watch Wilmer Difo struggle to throw a football

Scherzer 3rd-fastest to reach 2000 strikeouts
Only Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson pitched fewer innings before hitting the milestone.
