Both outfielder Josh Willingham and shortstop Cristian Guzman are getting the night with what interim manager Jim Riggleman referred to it as "general aches and pains.""We're giving Josh Willingham a day off; he's a little banged up," Riggleman said. "We just felt like this would be a good day to for him to sit one out and hopefully come back tomorrow,"With both of those players sitting out, Riggleman moved Adam Dunn to the three hole with Ryan Zimmerman batting cleanup."Josh has been great protection for Adam [Dunn] and we just felt like without him in the lineup, the best way to see some more pitches would be to have [Ryan] Zimmerman hit behind him," said Riggleman.It won't be a long term situation because when Willingham return to the lineup on Sunday, Dunn will move back to the No. 4 spot.
RZ batting clean-up I hope he uses the same lineup tomorrow
That's a terrible lineup. Why would we bat a terrible offensive player in the 2 hole? This is what I would have done:MorganBelliardZimmerman/DunnDunn/Zimmerman (doesn't matter really)DukesPadillaGonzalez/MorseNievesLannan
Riggleman hates Morse.
As of 6:00 p.m. the tarp is on the field with a steady rain falling. After looking at the radar and talking with a few people in the organization, the game will not start at 7:05 p.m.I'm hearing there is a window to start the game between 8:30-9:00 p.m., but the window looks pretty small.Maybe they will try to get as many innings in as possible and hope for the best.After all, it is Frank Howard bobblehead night.
I don't see any way this game gets played. For those of you who got it wrong, it's "John Lannan and pray for rain" not "John Lannan pray for rain ".
P.A. just announced that first pitch will be at 8:25 pm. I think that might be a little optimistic, but it seems the worst is over.
