A legitimate lineup? I am in shock.

Like I said yesterday, no way Riggleman would try that B S lineup with Stras on the bump. If he had and Stras took a loss because of it, he'd be run outta town.
This is the lineup we shouldve had the past 2 days. Those losses are on Riggs and no one else. Pathetic.
But at least you can book a W today. This is legit.

alright! A lineup in an AL park without 2 virtual pitchers batting (Willie and Wil).

Hope Alberto has a good game. He's really been hosed this year with a lack of playing time. Almost would have been better to let him play at SYR that sit on our bench 96% of the time.

I'm hoping for a Guzman trade in late July that let's us see if Alberto can play. He's got the glove (it seems), he's hit .278 as a part-timer for us over the last 2+ seasons.

His glove and range are certainly better than Guzman's, and has to be better than Kennedy, even allowing that Kennedy may just be in a short-time funk.

If his glove is solid and his bat is just OK, an infield with Zimm, ID & Alberto matches up nicely with a staff that tries to get ground balls.

Agreed -- if strasburg pitched every day, Willie and Kennedy would never start

Wait for it... Willie Harris game day substitute for Zimmerman.

Too bad Kennedy is struggling as a bench player. Now his value as a late inning defensive replacement is questionable. Still don't understand why this team is flat so often. Seems like there's plenty to be upbeat about wit hthe direction things are going.
