White Sox pitchers against the Nationals

After some last-minute wrangling to find some extra rest for Jake Peavy, the White Sox decided on their pitching probables for this weekend's series at Nationals Park. Here are the matchups:

Friday: Gavin Floyd (2-7, 5.64) vs. Stephen Strasburg (2-0, 2.19)

Saturday: Jake Peavy (5-5, 5.62) vs. J.D. Martin (0-2, 4.19)

Sunday: Freddy Garcia (7-3, 4.94) vs. John Lannan (2-4, 5.45)

Strasburg just misses out on facing Peavy, a former Padre and his favorite player growing up in San Diego.

Maybe some home cookin' will help. Couldn't hurt, anyway.

Speaking of the upcoming series, WGN has the White Sox at Pittsburgh tonight, for those who might want to do some advance scouting.

On the colorful managerial quotes front, maybe Guillen will pick up right where Leyland left off, eh? :-)

1a1: As you say, home cookin' should help a bit. Here are some numbers from MLB.com...
Nationals = 18-12 at home vs 13-24 on the road. The next two opponents are 15-16(CWS) & 15-19(KC) on the road. It also looks like the Nats will miss Buehrle (CWS ace), taking on the pitchers Adam lists instead; KC's rotation will firm up later in the weekend. A 4-2 homestand would help the mood of some here in the Natosphere a bit, wouldn't you think?

BinM, you know how they say "you're as good as your next at-bat"? Comments here are as optimistic as the current at-bat.
I wish I could say that's what three decades-plus of no baseball does to a town, but really, it's not better elsewhere.
I think this is it.

Sec3: Along your line of thought, they are also just as pessimistic as the last at-bat.
Comments on a blog are just that - Comments from individual fans (and the occaisional troll). Whether a post is purely reactionary, overly positive or negative, or even an 'inside' reference or non-sequitor, it's all good in the end.

They need to be 7-2 over the next 9 to get even closed to a speck of respectability.

With starting pitchers that seem to feature Manny, Moe, Jack or Moe, Larry, Curly and Shemp (take your pick) 2-7 will probably be more in order.

Ya see folks there was no plan to compete in 2010, that was all contrived by the likes of us who pay the freight and want to believe. It took the TB Rays 10 years to reach nirvana, the Nats are still 4 years away! Thats right 4 years!

Well, Mr. BinM, and Sec3mysofa, long time regulars yeah huh?

Then I guess you know how NFA_Brian is now don't you? Today he was talking about the #1 of #1 picks again. And the Nats as a team with that pick. Why? Right now they are playing .200 baseball. That's right every five (Strasburg) starts they have a good chance to win. While in the others a greater chance to lose.

That equates to a 50+win 100+ loss season.

Gee, what part of that of that don't you grok?

Congrats to FOX for getting JD Martin instead of Strasburg for their Saturday game. I'm sure they consider it a nice consolation prize.
