Thankfully it matches what Kilgore posted.

I prefer seeing Bernadina to Maxwell, but other than that, I like the lineup. Let's get a win! Keep the momentum, Nationals!!

From earlier...

Feet straight to the fire tonight for Maxwell, eh? Perhaps a 6-game final test - Hit, and you stay in the Orginization; don't hit, and you're a DFA victim.

BinM, I think you're not far off. We have Zimmermann, Wang and Flores on the 60 day DL. Each of them, if and when they finish a rehab assignment, will need a move on the 40 man roster to clear space for them.

Zimmermann is starting to seem very likely to be a mid-August return. Wang & Flores, I personally don't expect them this year, but who knows.

This is really the sorriest lineup I have EVER seen fielded. Worst of all time. Worse than the expansion Mets or Seattle Pilots. We'll lose by twenty runs tonight. Riggleman has totally lost it. Look for him to leave the park tonight in a rubber truck. Stan Kasten is hopeless. The Lerners are completely out of touch and will lose baseball in DC for another century.

(Sorry, just trying to channel dovelevine. Great to see Morse in the lineup tonight.)

Feels like we've got Kennedy, Harris (as AK hinted last night), Guzman, maybe even Nyjer and Maxwell in the shop window for potential trades. God knows what we'd get for any of them, but Rizzo might be up to something.

Good work there, Kirky. :-)

You're on the right channel. Good 1.

I'm sure Maxwell will have a good game, get us excited, and return to his level of mediocrity.

Hope Dunn hits 2 more tonight.

There will be lots of first basemen available in the off season (Adrian Gonzalez for one) as free agents. This will depress the value of Adam Dunn's contract. Those that are saying he deserves 100 million/4 years need to keep that in mind. Adam Dunn was on the market til the end of February when we signed him initially. If we get a deal that Rizzo thinks will immediately improve the club (second base or center field) then I am for taking the deal. Rizzo is smart enough to neither sell low now nor sign him to a contract extension that puts him into untradeable status. If no trade happens by July 31 then a fresh look at the economics of keeping Dunn are warranted. I too enjoy watching Dunn on this hot streak but his value is at its peak now in the trading market. Negotiatiing a contract when he is at his hottest would not be wise either--(remember Guzman, anyone?).

______________________________________

#3 & #4 hitters don't grow on trees & they significantly make every hitter around them better... There is a reason Robinson Cano is having his best season, because he is now #5 right behind A-Rod... When the situation presents itself, a team has to pick their poison. If you take Adam Dunn out of that offense, we become triple A... seriously, Zimmerman will get pitched around, Willingham will get pitched around, etc, etc.

The Nationals have to go 4 years but not for $100 million... Nobody is going to pay that price, but how about 4 years / 60 - 80 million... I think that is a good starting point. Hopefully by the end of his contract (or before), Bryce Harper will be ready.
