Today's lineups

Josh Johnson is a potential Cy Young winner, but the Nationals managed to beat the Marlins with Johnson on the mound back on May 8, when Matt Chico, of all pitchers, and Willie Harris, of all hitters, led the Nats to a victory. In his last six starts, Johnson has a 1.00 ERA. The Nationals will try to topple him with Livan Hernandez and this lineup.

And Willie Harris has an over 1.0 OPS against this pitcher. I guess we can expect to see him before this game is done.

On Dunn not sliding...

Paulino came out to "meet the ball", when the throw came in. This is an absolute no, no. usually perpetrated by 2nd basemen getting throws from a catcher. The ball travels faster than your arm can make the play. If the catcher had blocked the plate and waited for the ball, Dunn might have been out, and a two run lead plays a lot different than a 4 run lead.

OTOH, would you block the plate with Dunn pounding down on you?

catcher50, I was commenting on that to my husband as we watched the game last night - I wouldn't block it, either, with The Dude barreling down the line.
