Lineups, etc.

So Shawn Hill finished a simulated game this afternoon -- 35 pitches over 2.0 innings with Tony Batista in the box. When the clubhouse opens, I'll check on how he's doing. I think -- think -- that if he came out of it OK, he'll go somewhere for a rehab start in the next several days. We'll see.

Lineups:

Washington:
Lopez -- 6
Belliard -- 4
Zimmerman -- 5
Young -- 3
Kearns -- 9 (moved up one spot w/ lefty Hamels going for Phillies)
Church -- 7
Schneider -- 2
Logan -- 8
Chico -- 1

Philadelphia:
Rollins -- 6
Victorino -- 9
Utley -- 4
Howard -- 3
Rowand -- 8
Burrell -- 7
Helms -- 5
Ruiz -- 2
Hamels -- 1

Just for fun, here are John Lannan's starts for Class AAA Columbus:

6/22 vs. Ottawa: 5-2/3 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
6/27 vs. Indianapolis: 6 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
7/2 vs. Richmond: 6 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
7/7 at Charlotte: 5-1/3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
7/15 vs. Richmond: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
7/20 at Norfolk: 7 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

It's obvious he hasn't been over-powering there, what with the low strikeout numbers. But he's pitching deeper into games, and he's been quite effective. One interesting thing to find out: Is this a spot start, or will he be here a while?

Off to the clubhouse shortly. Thanks to thoses who joined in the chat.

my main concern is that he's not a strikeout pitcher. Seems the Nats have a good number of pitchers that don't have that "out" pitch (Bacsik, Redding, Bowie, Simontacchi) and once hitters watch enough tape of pitchers, they usually key in on them and start to hammer them. Of course, not having watched Lannan pitch yet, maybe he's more deceptive than the others and can survive up in the bigs. Either way, it should be exciting to finally see one of the true prospects get a shot!

A question for anyone who can answer. Are National's games broadcast on the radio in the outer banks of North Carolina? If so, what frequency?

Ground ball, ground ball, pop-up... I'll take that...

Can he bunt?
