Tonight's Lineups

I'll try to post again before the game starts, but in the meantime, I gotta scramble to put together some reaction to the Manny saga. For now, here are tonight's lineups. This might be the most succinct way to illustrate the impact of his departure: the new left fielder is batting ninth.

Washington

Guzman - 6
Johnson - 3
Zimmerman - 5
Dunn - 9
Dukes - 8
Willingham - 7
Flores - 2
Hernandez - 4
Zimmermann - 1

Los Angeles

Furcal - 6
Hudson - 4
Ethier - 9
Loney - 3
Martin - 2
Kemp - 8
Blake - 5
Wolf - 1
Pierre - 7

Ug.

Torre must have come down with a case of geniusitus (LaRussa syndrom).

I hope he winds up with Kemp/Blake getting stranded at second all night long.

Good to see Anderson H back in the lineup.

I'm surprised that Kemp and Loney aren't switched to make up the absence of Manny's production. Oh well, I haven't won four World Series...

Torre won 4 World Series titles while managing the Yankees, who, because they're in the AL use the DH, and LaRussa did not bat the pitcher 8th during the 2006 season when he won with the Cardinals.

Great. Now, when the Nats break LA's home winning streak, they'll attribute it to Manny's absence.

(There's some optimism hidden in there if you know where to look for it.)
