Same lineup as before ... same old Riggleman.

Time to strap ourselves down for another 100 loss season.

Rizzo needs to make a trade just to break Riggleman out of his OCD ritual.

Peric, I completely agree.
I wish Rizzo would trade Guzman, even if just for a bag a chips and we eat 95% of his salary for the remainder of the year.
Then, tell Nyjer he has a strained oblique and he's going on the 15 day DL.
That's the only way we get an outfield with Hammer, Bernadina and Morse.

I do not have a good feeling about this road trip

Hurry home early -- hurry on home

This is the same lineup Riggleman has been running out there the entire season that is on pace for 100 losses. Way to think outside the box there. This guy is completely void of ideas.

This is the same lineup that Riggleman has been running out there the entire season that has already lost 50 games. Way to think outside the box there. This guy is completely void of ideas.

I had really hoped he'd give some other guys a shot, like Morse in RF, and Gonzalez or Kennedy at second. I think it's obvious that we aren't making the playoffs this year and it's equally obvious that Morgan isn't the CF of the future, so why not experiment. Put Bernadina in CF and give some of the other guys a chance?

Ditto what everyone else said about using the same lineup which has been on a two month losing streak more or less. Look on the bright side, Willie Harris is not in the starting lineup. Oh, and just think if baseball wasn't back in DC we might be driving to Baltimore to watch the O's.

The problem is that I think they've all drunk the Kool-Aid about being a good team that just hasn't been playing up to its potential.

They think they can just play their way out of a "slump." They seem to believe that their brief flirtation with being over .500 represents the "real" team, rather than an aberration. I think they are mistaken.

I, too, would like to see Bernadina in CF and Morse in RF, given the difficulty they have had in scoring runs. I would also give Gonzo more chances at 2B. I do agree, though, with sticking with Desmond, though I'd like to move him up in the order to see if he can get some better pitches to hit.

Interesting that except for:
Ted_Striker psoting"
Stephen J. Stasburg's facing R. Nolasco

no one else has mentioned Strasburg at all.
In previous weeks every other post would have been about him.

Will somebody tell the kid to shave off the silly looking ratty goatee? Thank you.

well I guess they shut up all you know-it-alls tonight, lol ... always amazing how many legends in their own minds we have around...

I remember a lot of complaints about how Riggleman keeps juggling the line-up, making it impossible for the team to achieve consistency, etc.

So, how was this "the same lineup that Riggleman has been running out there the entire season that has already lost 50 games>"

You can't have it both ways.
