Jim Riggleman, on why Ian Desmond is out of the lineup: "Well, it's not to just play him every day, but as I've said before I just can't abandon those who've been out there for us all year. It just so happens we're facing [Cliff] Lee. [Alberto] Gonzalez set a Nationals' record with three doubles against Lee last week, so if I'm going to give Gonzalez an opportunity to help the ballclub I felt like this would be the night."
I understand playing AlGo but Guzman should have been benched in favor of ID.

I really just don't know why they didn't just put Guzman on the DL for the rest of the season.
