Nationals vs Pirates, Game 3
« Topic Start: May 20, 2009, 10:08:22 AM »
freak it I'll try it.  The Nats are 10-5 at games I've attended so maybe I'll try something new to get the guys going.  I'll even let the Pirates believe they're the home team by using the home uniform.  Maybe the Nats can only win on the road?

PITTSBURGH PIRATES



Morgan - LF
Sanchez - 2B
McLouth - CF
Monroe - RF
Adam LaRoche - 1B
Diaz - C
Andy LaRoche - 3B

Washington Nationals




SS Cristian Guzman
1B NIck Johnson
3B Ryan Zimmerman
LF Adam Dunn
RF Austin Kearns
2B Ronnie Belliard
CF Justin Maxwell
C Wil Nieves
P John Lannan

And his eyebrows haven't fully fused either.

Yeah! Must be from his first game or something.

This is what John Lannan will look like 65 years from now:

Well we should've won the last three games, maybe tonight is the night we end our terrible streak.

If they lose tonight, it ties the longest skid of the year (at the beginning of the season :? )

ESPN.com's Tristan H. lollipopcroft offers today's fantasy evaluations:

Sneaky matchups play:
John Lannan is 1-0 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in four starts at home this season, and he'll be battling a Pirates team that has a .638 OPS versus left-handers, third-worst in the majors.

Hitters' count:
•  :worship: Cristian Guzman, SS, Nationals: He's 4-for-7 (.571 BA) with one double and one home run in his career against Paul Maholm.

Pitchers' count:
•  :ballbat: Adam Dunn, OF, Nationals: Besides the fact that Paul Maholm has held left-handed hitters to an OPS .236 lower than versus right-handers in his career, he has limited Dunn to a 3-for-25 (.120 BA), 10-strikeout, no-extra-base hit performance all time.
•  :doh: Josh Willingham, OF, Nationals: Don't assume he'd make a smarter starter for Washington over Dunn; he's 1-for-14 (.071 BA) lifetime against Maholm.

If you're hardcore
•  :pimp: Ronnie Belliard, 1B/2B/3B, Nationals: Heads-up Manny Acta, you need to get Belliard into the lineup for once, seeing as he's 3-for-6 in his career against Paul Maholm, with two of the hits home runs.

Pirates?  ARRRRRRR!

I think people usually get them on cbs sportsline an hour or two prior to first pitch, but I could be mistaken.

Chico has said in the past the clubhouse opens at 3:30 ET and he gets the lineup then and it gets posted pretty quickly thereafter.

Yeah, clubhouse open at 330.  Usually Pete McElroy over at MASN.com has both lineups around 4, Chico usually only posts the Nats lineup.

I wouldn't be surprised to see us actually end up with a higher BA.
