Game 90 discussion thread: Nationals at Marlins
Manager Jim Riggleman eschewed the cliches about tonight's game taking on any kind of extra meaning. Stephen Strasburg will not set a tone for the entire second half. He badly wants the Nationals to win. If they don't, Livan Hernandez gets the ball tomorrow. "It's just one ballgame," Riggleman said.
It is indicative of the second half in one sense, since the Marlins play in the National League East. The Nationals will play 43 of their final 73 games within their division, starting with their series at Sun Life Stadium.
The place is looking empty -- it would not surprise me if more fans showed up to watch some of Strasburg's minor league starts than are in the current crowd here. The empty seats may see quite a show. Strasburg has vowed to pitch with enhanced conviction, and the Marlins have only one left-handed hitter in their lineup -- leadoff man Chris Coghlan.
Sheinin is going to be chatting all night. You can also talk about the game right here.
