Today's lineups

Wilson Ramos gets the second start of his Nationals tenure and his first playing time since being called up Wednesday. He'll bat eighth as Adam Dunn returns after his one off day to rest an ailing hamstring.

Jason Marquis (1-7, 8.13) will face Charlie Morton (1-10, 10.03). Not a pair of pitching lines you'll often see head to head.

I'm still amazed Morgan didn't bowl the catcher over last night when he had the chance. Happily surprised.

Can we please get the "futures" line-up in there with the addition of Espinosa? Put him at the top of the order too. Need, Ramos, Desmond, Bernadina, Zimmerman and him in there at the same time

I'd like to see that futures lineup on Tuesday, with Maya pitching to Ramos.
Definitely going to attend that game, gotta show some love to Maya.
Although certainly the Nats will want Pudge and solid MLB experience behind the plate for Maya, and certainly that's the right thing to do.

As long as it takes appeals to be settled by MLB & MLBPA, it's looking like Nyjer will serve some of his suspension this year (for the Philly ball tossing incident) and some of it next April (some or all of the 8 game suspension will bleed into next season).

Wonder how often a guy has finished one season on suspension, and started the next on suspension as well?

Nyjer going to serve his suspension this season it might even be reduced and stop with the futures post do you want to lose 100 games again? there is plenty of time for Maya, Ramos,Espinosa, and the like to display their skills besides that's why they have spring training and winter ball.

How can piece of trash Morgan continue to play? The idiot can't even slide properly.
