Olsen needs to smoke 2 packs and get good and angry to keep the Guppies away from .500

Who else would you have put out there?  Willingham was in desperate need of a day off.

I would have thought we'd be better than a nine game improvement.

Still, nothing to hang our heads about.

Nats need to be patient with Volstad.  The heat will also help wear him down sooner.  Once he tires just a bit, the sinker won't sink and he'll be sending hangers to the plate.  You can look at his day/night splits to see the impact heat has on him.

Wouldn't a sinker sink more when a pitcher is tired?

That would be due a lost of velocity, not spin.  When Volstad tires, his velocity isn't affected, but nothing moves - everything is teed up.

Outfielder Josh Willingham, who is getting the night off tonight, has been playing through a knee injury, Riggleman said. He is hitting .192 since the All-Star break, and Riggleman said he's been dealing with knee problems most of the season

surprise.... not. :?
