Ryan Zimmerman scratched with strained rib

Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is out of today's lineup with a strained rib muscle, meaning both he and Adam Dunn will not start. Dunn said he is "100 percent" available to pinch-hit.

Here's the new Nationals lineup:

1. Danny Espinosa, 2B
2. Adam Kennedy, 1B
3. Ian Desmond, SS
4. Michael Morse, RF
5. Roger Bernadina, LF
6. Wilson Ramos, C
7. Justin Maxwell, CF
8. Alberto Gonzalez, 3B
9. Ross Detwiler, SP

Does this qualify as a reverse lock?

Reverse lock indeed. This line-up will surprise everyone...little fish will rise to the occasion with the whales on the bench!

I guess Riggleman wanted to avoid having 2 pitchers hit back-to-back, so he inserted Gonzo in the 8 hole between JMax and Detwiler, but if I were Gonzo I'd still lodge a protest with the players' union for having to hit behind Maxwell.

Wow...more indians no chiefs or something like that...just don't look right.

If I didn't know any better I'd think this was a 2011 Spring Training lineup....

Looks more like a Triple A lineup.

I just want to see Detwiler throw fairly well. Any runs would be a bonus.

where's the other split-squad playing? Viera?

I for one am happy that we've had Single-A baseball in DC the last 6 years. The stadium is a little big, but oh well...I didn't pay for it.

Like I said...

All I know is I was cheering like a softball girl watching that "split-squad," "triple A" lineup give us some great defense and some timely hitting. :-)
