Hand of the King/Queen: Max Scherzer

“Do nothing? That’s your wise advice?” – King Robert Baratheon (S1 E5)

Max Scherzer has it all.

The intimidation factor? Check.  He is as fierce as a competitor as anybody in the realm.  When he represents the King or Queen at various events, everybody will know Scherzer means business.

He is also knowledgable.  He is a 12-year veteran, Scherzer knows the realm inside and out.  He knows people, places, and their strengths and weaknesses.

He also is the best at what he does.  He is on a hall-of-fame trajectory on the field, which makes him a valuable ally in small council meetings and, in general, in an advising position.

Scherzer is universally liked and would make a perfect second in command to any ruler.

Well, those are our picks for the Nationals small council! Which picks did we get right?  Which ones did we, embarrassingly, get wrong? Share your picks with us on Twitter, @DistrictOnDeck!
