Nationals @ Dodgers, Game 2
« Topic Start: August 07, 2010, 07:35:45 PM »
    STARTING LINEUPS
    NATIONALS (49-61)
    CF Roger Bernadina
    SS Ian Desmond
    3B Ryan Zimmerman
    1B Adam Dunn
    LF Josh Willingham
    RF Michael Morse
    C Ivan Rodriguez
    2B Adam Kennedy
    P Livan Hernandez

    DODGERS (56-54)
    LF Scott Podsednik
    2B Ryan Theriot
    RF Andre Ethier
    1B James Loney
    CF Matt Kemp
    3B Casey Blake
    SS Jamey Carroll
    C Brad Ausmus
    P Hiroki Kuroda

The fact that Kennedy is hitting 8th while Desmond is hitting 2nd makes no sense at all to me. Desmond has a .302 OBP vs. RHP

Because he'll see better pitches, more fastballs, with Zimm and Dunn behind him than the pitcher?

The #8 hitter doesn't see many pitches in the zone, yet Desmond still had an awful walk rate. Just imagine what his rate will be now that he has Zimmerman behind him, not a pitcher.

Damn right.  Desmond in 2nd is the right place.  If it's a statistical fluke, we'll find out and we're back to where we started.  If he's getting better pitches and capitalizing, we've found something and made a big leap forward in the lineup.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

He'll get pitches to hit and use them to his advantage.

I like when Raja gets on base.

Ok, Ian, do not swing at the first pitch... Bernadina just walked!
