Morse has Harris behind him. Betting he gets walked at least twice today so they can pitch to Harris.

Now as most of you know i'm a Willie Harris fan but their is no way that he should be starting over Morse or Bernadina since the Nat's get to use the DH why is Harris playing unless it's late in the game as a defensive replacement?

Lannan is pitching tonight for Harrisburg.

Are you kidding me?? Harris? Starting?? With Bernadina on the bench? NO excuse... bad personnel decision #147 by Riggleman. I just hope this time it doesn't cost the Nats the game against the legitimately (and deservedly so, for Angelos' sake) worst team in baseball...

Don't you see? Harris is "protecting" Morse. I'll bet Michael never sees a good pitch and strikes out at least twice in frustration. Almost like he's being set up to fail, thereby dampening the blogosphere clamor to play him regularly. Hope I'm wrong.

Yeah for Michael Morse... boo for no Bernadina over both Morgan and Harris...

Hopefully against the O's it matters not... but, we'll see...

Go Nats!

Riggleman is completely clueless. Even when he gets to add a player he winds up subtracting. Unreal.

Harris over Bernadina is a tough one to defend after a day off. Harris has started some games the last few weeks--not really essential he gets the work tonight...

Riggleman better realize that for him to stay on after this season, the Nats better start winning.

Last offseason, nobody wanted to manage this mess of a team. But this winter, veteran managers will be lining up to take Rig's job.

70 wins is the minimum, and they are just over that pace now after the recent slump.

Come on Willie Harris? Are you kidding me? He is at most a pinch runner/defensive replacement period. He's been as close to an automatic out as you can get. In a game with the DH this is just silliness.

Willie Harris???? Fire Riggleman now! He`s completely lost his mind.
