Adam Dunn sits with sore hamstring

First baseman Adam Dunn has the night off with a sore hamstring, a minor ailment he's been playing through for about 10 days, Manager Jim Riggleman said. The Nationals do not view the ailment as serious and he will likely return Sunday.

"We're just going to shut it down today and hopefully get him back in there tomorrow," Riggleman said.

Dunn has played in all but one game this season and has started all but six. The last Dunn was not in the starting lineup came July 24 at Milwaukee.

Rizzo's inability, after almost a full year, to sign Dunn to an extension is reason enough to send Rizzo packing.
Neither Rizzo or Riggleman have shown anything that could justify replacing Manny Acta and Jim Bowden with these 2 dopes. I can't help but think that the team's obsession with Strasburg's pitch count contributed to the injury. I think that with a young guy, you give him a lot of work..clearly the Nats' "brain trust" mishandled this. So who gets the blame? Rob Dibble!! This team's management is looking more and more like the people who took the Senators out of town.
