Nice lineup. I hope Belliard gets it together tonight; he did nothing for us with his bat yesterday.

Cabrera is going to need some run support, so I hope the guys aren't exhausted after yesterday and last night's travel.

Go Nats!

My question is that if Zimmerman hits fifth, who hits third? Dukes? Johnson? How do you shuffle the lineup card? Keep him 3rd.

Here we go again.....playing the trade bait just like last year in hopes we can turn Ronnie into a washed up prospect....I hate this approach...it did not work last year and it will not work this year.

One think that is interesting about this is that it means Kearns is the trade bait and Willingham is the one who will stay and play once they clean up the roster. If Willingham was not part of the plan...remember he is under club control for 2 more years after this year where Kearns and Johnson are gone at the end of the season......then Willingham would be playing a lot more in hopes of boosting his value. Ronnie is not going to bring anything of value this late in his career...just play Anderson every day please.

Johnson isn't trade bait. Every day he plays the way he is now, he's one more day closer to signing a multi-year contract. If they trade him, who do they have at first the next couple of years? Dunn? You gotta be kidding.

Swapping Dukes and Zimmerman is the most common scenario where Zimmerman hits fifth.

I would love it if we can re-sign Johnson. Of course, I still pine for Hill, injuries and all. That's why I am glad I am not the GM - too much heart, not enough brains.

Team needs pitching and is not going to pay Johnson next year. They could put Dunn at first or they could play someone not on the roster or in the system at this time. Johnson and Kearns but will be gone due to salary issues....you might as well get what you can for them now.

Could this be Cabrera last start if he continues his walking binge ?

Can we play spoiler to the Dodgers' attempt to go 13-0 and set a record for the best home record to begin a season? I'd really like to see Hernandez, one of our hottest hitters right now, get the start instead of Belliard, but oh well. Go Nats!

The Caps are playing tonight (in overtime now, in fact), which is good for us. Over the last couple of times (2? 3?) when both the Caps and Nats have played on the same day, both teams have won. Go Caps! Go Nats!

Could Beimel (sp?) serve as a closer? After watching Debbies interview with him he certainly appears to have the attitude and that FU thingy that is tough at that level. He would certainaly make more money in that role.

What say you Nats Journal? (I hate that line yet couldn't resist.)

Well, the Caps lost. Shoot.

Posted by: BGinVA | May 6, 2009 10:09 PM | Report abuse

Well the Caps just lost,so thats not a good sign for the Nats
