I like having Huff's bat outta there. I also like getting Dunn back in LF. Seems like he hits better while playing LF.

Go Nats.

(Hey, it worked last time.)

Against a RHP, Dunn 4th-LF, is a good choice, but Kearns at 5th-RF could be a problem. Unfortunately, the Nationals have the players better suited to hit 5th in this lineup on the DL (Dukes or Flores).
I'd rather have seen Maxwell at the 3rd slot & RZim in the #5 slot, with Kearns at #6, Bard at #7 & Harris at #8; but that's just my opinion.

Kearns better start showing something at the plate soon or we won't be able to get that bag of balls that people want to trade him for.

Remember when executing a trade a couple of things have to happen
1. Both sides need/want to have a player the other has.
2. Both sides need to feel they are getting at least equal value.
3. One side can't be dealing from a position of weakness. When this happens that weak side has to give up more for less. Bad trade.
4. Both sides have to trust each other.
Finally, the historic problem the Nats have had is they value their players higher than other teams value them. Hopefully, Rizzo will be more realistic.

Kearns won't be moved until close to the trade deadline, at best. Most likely, he'll be on the roster until after the end-of-season, then catch the $1M buyout on a non-tender.

Way to go, Maxy! Love to have seen Thrilledge get that one. He'd be at the right field foul pole circling the route.

Pitching and defense...welcome to your new, reborn 2009 Nats.

Det stays! Keep the kid in the rotation.

It might not help in the W-L column, but TV coverage would be improved if Nats could trade Debbi Taylor to the Os for Amber Theoharis, who actually adds something. Maybe we could throw in a player to be named later if the Os insist.

Man - I was just going to say that Debbi Taylor is just plain awful. It's embarassing! I can't believe that we have stuck with her for all of these years...there has to be someone better out there.
