Lineups from Nationals Park

Just one note, along with tonight's lineups. In the last two games, the two Washington starters, Collin Balester and Tim Redding, have earned wins. Tonight John Lannan tries to make it three wins in a row for Nats starters. Not since July 31-August 2, 2007, have Washington starters won games three times in a row. The last trio to do it? Matt Chico, Lannan, and Mike Bacsik.

Tonight's lineups

Los Angeles

Kemp - 8
Ethier - 9
Ramirez - 7
Kent - 4
Loney - 3
Blake - 5
Ardoin - 2
Berroa - 6
Kershaw - 1

Washington

Hernandez - 4
Guzman - 6
Zimmerman - 5
Milledge - 8
Belliard - 3
Dukes - 9
Harris - 7
Nieves - 2
Lannan - 1

Yikes, that lineup would have a hard time scaring the lion from the Wizard of Oz.

Bob, it's lucky we just have to scare the Los Angeles Dodgers.

What's worse 54-107 or 48-85? I'll take the 48-85 and bet that the Nats can do as good as or better than 7-23 the rest of the way and beat that horrible, awful, embarrassment of a 54 win team.

I like giving Bonifacio a night off. So far he is considerably worse batting right-handed, so I like giving him a night off against the lefty.

Yeah the Dodgers are almost as afraid of scoring runs as we are. The over/under on this game must be about 1.5.

thing is, most people *expect* the nats to suck at scoring.

but the dodgers? that lineup shouldn't suck that badly.

Lannan should eat them alive tonight. If we were in the NL West, WE'D be fighting for a playoff spot now, too, hahahaha.

RHP Shawn Hill is suffering from swelling in his right elbow. With this setback in mind, Hill will not pitch for the Nationals this season.

On Friday, Hill will be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, FL.

Do you think he'd get meed?

Count'em 4 middle infielders in tonight's lineup.

OK, this is dumb, but did Dr. Andrews move to Florida?

If so, I'd better correct my address book for the fan letters to Nats' players

and the angels are desperate for SS help, since izturez (sp?) is out and aybar pulled a hammy the other day. supposedly they're looking for help.

Sad news about Shawn, though not exactly unexpected. No reason to Patterson him until spring training though.

BoSox and Yanks knotted at 2-2, bottom of the ninth, Yanks batting, bases loaded, one out, Papelbon on to face Giambi.

@C50 - He is in Florida (http://www.theandrewsinstitute.com/Location/)

Hope springs eternal - Yankees prevailed, 3-2.

On Bergmann's hitting prowess.

Shawn Hill makes John Patterson look durable.
If Shawn Hill were a horse, he'd be put down.
A match has a longer life than Shawn Hill.
Nick Johnson looks like Cal Ripken compared to Shawn Hill.

Nine career wins. And he was penciled in to be our Opening Day starter?

Please, please, somebody put this dead-armed, lame-ass pitcher out to pasture. He is absolutely done. Fini. Kaput. Oven-ready.

A more appropriate name for Hill would be injured pitcher, not lame or dead arm. He is neither. Hill is by far the best pitcher we have if not for the bloody forearm strain. That strain has now resulted in the elbow problem. It would have been useful if we could have found a doctor that could have explained and corrected the forearm problem. I find it funny that Patterson , Hill and Chico all had forearm problems and no one was able to suggest corrective action. Chico's strain caused a subsequent elbow problem. Maybe that was due to his change in delivery. What gives Nats?

----------------

And at the beginning of the season if you had to bet which team (between the O's and Nats) would be 48-85 and 63-70, you'd have easily bet the Nats would have the better record of the two.

So, that's what it says about 'bets'

Oh yeah.

Wonder why? Oh can it be because everyone who normally blogs while at work (wasting their companies time) are on their way home right now?

Boo-Yah!!!
