Why aren't you posting the visiting team's line-up? This is important to some of us.

Do you suppose that it's maybe because he hasn't gotten it yet from the Dodgers? Get a grip, buddy. By chance are you a Washington Post subscriber? Probably not is my guess. So take the timely information you're getting for free and enjoy it.

I like the Riggs is sitting Willie after his 3-0-bases-loaded-double-play-brain-fart. I know he's struggling, but let's not get stupid. Maybe a quick rest will get him back on track.

Go Nats.

Sorry, flotsam. I didn't realize that was such an offensive question. I've been a Washington Post subscriber since the early 1970's. I like to have the line-ups before I leave for the game and they have always been available here. I can get them elsewhere. Have a great day!

Go, Nats!

Man they need Zim and Pudge back soon. With erratic pitching they can't afford to be without those guys for long, and this is a different team without them (last night's win nothwithstanding).

It's one thing to be waiting for the cavalry to arrive for the rotation, but we don't want to be waiting for key position players too.

Let's hope the cavalry is on time, without bumps/bruises, and even more effective than hoped!

Not Last in the NL East!

Go Nats!

So, I was cleaning out my purse this morning, and I found my "backup" RFK exploding fireworks pin in an inside pocket. I'm taking that as a good omen. :-) Let's go Nats!

My laugh for the day 1a1, finding an RFK pin in your purse. I try to clean out my briefcase at least once every 3 years too. And I just found a "very important" resource from 2005 on the area of my office shelf reserved for current stuff in use. But I'll be outta here in time to see most of the game on TV.

Riggs is just sitting Willie against the lefty I imagine, but good timing given last night's goofs.

Willie's not playing because Kershaw throw's about 95 and is difficult enough to hit for righties let alone Willie who has not gotten on track yet,Pudge was going to be off anyway after last night's game, but this hammy problem with Zimm goes back to what i said in an earlier post the trainers on this team should be held acoountable, proper stretching before the game negates the possibility of a hammy being pulled, the palms down exercise also is a preventitive way of a hammstring being pulled.
