Rescheduled Game, Lineups

The Nationals today announced that their postponed May 3 game against St. Louis has been rescheduled for July 23 -- 7:05 p.m. at Nationals Park. Folks with individual-game tickets to the postponed contest may use those tickets for the same seats on the July 23 game. Or, they may exchange their tickets for any other 2009 Nats regular season home game, excluding the three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, June 23-25.

Originally, the Nationals were supposed to be off on July 23. As it stands now, that make-up game will be wedged in between home series against the Mets and Padres. This rescheduled game also means the Nats, coming off the all-star break, will have games for 25 consecutive days.

Now, today's lineup. (I haven't yet seen the Giants'.)

Guzman - 6
Johnson - 3
Zimmerman - 5
Dunn - 9
Dukes - 8
Willingham - 7
Belliard - 4
Nieves - 2
Cabrera - 1

Oh baby -- Cabrera's going tonight? This one's in the bag.

I guess the only drama will be Zimmerman's streak...

Get better soon, Flores.

Nobody wants Ronnie @ age 34.....just stop it already……play Anderson...he gives us the best chance to win....and someday Acta will learn with another organization I hope that that is the goal of a MLB Manager....yes it is games...amazing, and hard to believe if you are a Nats fan.

Personally, I think that Ronnie is better than Anderson at second. Sure, Anderson has a bigger range, but Ronnie has better defence instincts than Anderson within that range. And Belly definitely hits better...

Ronnie has lost a step and a half from last year when he lost a step.......This bad has slowed down quite a bit this year too......He is near the end of the road. If he was 28 then fine but Andeson is hitting much better and will play a much better 2nd base this year and every year forward.

Interesting 2009 Randy Johnson Statistics:

The first thing that people mention about his record this year is that he's 0-3 on the road, and 2-0 at home... But there's something a little more interesting in those stats...

His losses are to Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Colorado. His wins are against Colorado and Arizona.

LA, Milwaukee and Colorado are numbers 1, 4 and 9 in runs scored, respectively, this year.

Colorado is 9 (as I mentioned above) and Arizona is 15th!

The Nats are 6th.

It may just be that he's come up against teams that can hit (LA in LA and Colorado in Colorado, for example... his two blow-outs). Maybe it isn't home and away, but hitting and not hitting?

... any reason to be hopeful with Cabrera on the mound...

let me correct that last... not that his w/l record was home and away, but his ERA home and away...

The point is... he took losses to good hitting teams, and won against the slackers.

(this is why I am not a stat guy)

It's kind of funny, but why would Red Sox fans know or care?

Posted by: NatsNut | May 11, 2009 4:58 PM |


I take this back. It's not funny at all. I didn't realize this had become such a big campaign, involving other major league players. It's awful and should be stopped.

He's already been sent down and now he's injured. It's bush league and unprofessional to humiliate him in this way.

Chico - Is Jesus still day-to-day? Is he expected to go on the DL?

28 game streak on the line tonight.

Well, yeah, Zim has one too, but I'm talking about Guz's 28 game no-walk streak, which dates back to September 12 last year.

He and Benjie Molina go mano-a-mano tonight as the only two major leaguers left with at least 75 plate appearances this year and no walks.

Go Guz!

BTW, there is a chance that Randy will be going for #300 on June 3 at Nats Park. That would be pretty neat if we got the opportunity to see him try for it. I got to see Nolan Ryan get his 300th in Milwaukee many moons ago.

Yes!!! Way to go ZIM!!!
