First, I'll just post the lineups.

I'll be back in an hour or so with a few pre-game morsels.

In the meantime, you can read about last night's game here. It gave the Nats their first series victory since... um... May 12-15 against New York. It also ended with a decision to send Tyler Clippard back down to Columbus. This morning, Clippard is still around the Washington clubhouse, so the transaction hasn't yet become official -- but it will before the Minnesota series, which begins Tuesday. Enter: Paul Lo Duca.

Dukes - 9

This has to be one of the worst matchups of 1B I've ever seen.

I think it's pretty funny that for some reason you guys bash Chico for his Nats coverage.

He's new on the job so cut him some slack. Like any of you could do any better. Plus you all know it can't be fun covering a team that stinks as much as the Nats do this year.

Bummer that LoDu's healthy. I guess we bid farewell to Wil the Thril? If the FO feels ok dumping $1.5 Mill (Makowacky), what's another $3.5 Mill?

And people complain we don't go after enough free agents... maybe they could make up their minds...

I DARE the Post to make this the post of the day:


Flush with excitement after having Chico Harlan crawl in and kiss his prostate, Steven of Capitol Hill expoundeth thus:

"Finally, I don't hate Bowden. I don't really care about him personally."

Yeah, right. And Captain Ahab loved and respected Moby Dick as a mammal, too. Nothing personal in that vendetta, either.

Lastings Milledge
R 30/BI 35/HR 5/SB 11

Adam Jones
R 24/BI 26/HR 4/SB 5

Yikes, considering the O's better lineup I guess that Jones guy should be producing a bit more than Milledge, but he's not even as good. Thank goodness he only cost them Beddard.

Pop some corn and get the brooms out. A sweet sweep could be a daddys daydream come true. GO NATS...STAY WARM

Put. That mac-and-cheese. Down.

Mac-and-cheese is for MAJOR LEAGUERS ONLY!

Redding seems to have either hit a wall, or the wall is falling on him in his past few starts. This already looks like the sixth inning.

I'm up, already.

To NatBisquit -- The big difference between Jones and Milledge is that Jones is actually a center fielder with defensive skills. Milledge is, or should be, a left fielder. Anyone who has watched the two play could clearly see that. And it's short sighted to compare the two simply on the basis of offensive numbers.

Moreover, while he was the center piece of the deal, it's incorrect to imply that he was traded straight up for Bedard. He was part of a 5-for-1 deal. Milledge, on the other hand, did cost the Nats two starters.

What Chico needs to do when he writes the game story is to tell me what happened in the game. This morning I read all about these sub-plots and drama but could only figure out how the Nats scored two runs and that was on the Flores homer. No mention at all on how they scored the other three runs.
