Today's lineups

The National of the Day receiving an off day is Ivan Rodriguez, who will yield to Wil Nieves behind the dish. Adam Dunn also remains out of the lineup, still, apparently, feeling sick.

The Nationals have not scored more than three runs in any of their past four games. As Ryan Zimmerman noted last night, "it doesn't get any easier" against Chris Carpenter.

Ian Desmond is your future. Not Guz. Desmond should be batting 2nd every game now.

I disagree...let desmond continue learning how to play in the big leagues for now. Maybe if he's still doing well at the mid point of the season start hitting him second.

Absolutely agree with nami322 about Desmond. Riggleman knows where he belongs in the line-up.

I think I know what's ailing Dunn, I got a little sick myself looking at FLop at the top of the Cardinals lineup.

Nats better sign Dunn for at least another couple of years. This lineup doesn't have nearly the punch without him.
