"I think that stuff's out of my control," Nationals shortstop Trea Turner said. "I try never to really focus on that stuff. I don't try to play manager or GM in my head because I'm not smart enough. I don't have all the information, I don't know what they're thinking. My job is to play baseball. I hope we have a great team here for a long, long time and I hope we play good baseball for this last month."
"I wouldn't have known it if you wouldn't have told me," Nationals shortstop Trea Turner, who was 0-for-4, said of facing lefties. "I feel like we face them they are there for a reason. Tough at-bats. (Vargas) has great stuff, good off-speed pitches to keep you out in front. He pitched well today. It doesn't matter how hard you throw."
