Adam Dunn scratched

Feeling under the weather for the second straight day, Adam Dunn will not be in the Nationals starting lineup but will be available to pinch hit. Josh Willingham will take Dunn's cleanup spot, and the infield will shift around to make up for his absence at first base. The new lineup:

Nationals
1. Willie Harris, RF
2. Cristian Guzman, 2B
3. Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
4. Josh Willingham, LF
5. Ivan Rodriguez, C
6. Adam Kennedy, 1B
7. Ian Desmond, SS
8. Roger Bernadina, CF
9. Craig Stammen, SP

First to say this lineup ain't scaring nobody and if i'm Riggleman i'd let Nyjer bat against Loshe(+5 era) and sit him tommorow against Carpenter also Morse seemed to play well at bat and in the field replacing Dunn yesterday,if they don't beat Loshe tonight then they're staring at.500 when they face the Mets wedensday.

at which point they get the "struggling" Mets and the just-plain-bad Orioles. After the next West Coast trip, with SF and San Diego, both playing well, they're through that once-dreaded first two months, and most likely somewhere near .500. Which anyone here would have taken in a heartbeat on March 30.
Oh, and did we mention they have a couple of new pitchers, one starting tonight and the other in a couple of weeks?

Tonight's lineup feels somwhat 'out-of-synch', but we'll see how it plays.
