So cised :az:

I hope we can find a way to get to Hamels but I have a feeling it will be a low scoring affair (2-1, 3-2) type of game. Going to need a few clutch hits.

That's why we need Zimmm in the lineup.  (Plus the fact that I'll be sitting right by third base and want to see some web gems.)

Tracy and ankiel are hot, we're facing a lefty and I bet these two struggle as a result. We have like 5 lefties in the lineup if we stay with yesterday's team, so I fear we may struggle to hit.

Hope I'm wrong

Obviously, Ricky, he's a butt-cised sundress silly. He's just hoping he gets to play Whore or Bore, which would be mooooooeney. If not it would be totally nubs and he'd have to punt the whole thing. Hurrrrrrrting.

I don't think you will be.

Davey should play Moore in left or at 1B... but I fear his stubbornness could cost the Nats tonight.

Why are we having a night game on a Sunday and why is it a 8 not 7?

Davey should adjust the lineup accordingly but we don't have many options. I don't want to see Nady that's for sure. He better play Harper, even vs Lefty.

Moore for Tracy is the one I want to see. Tracy has hit off lefties in the past few days but still isn't great off them

no in all honesty, moore has to be in the line-up tonight.  has to.

They blue themselves early so they'd be nice and relaxed for a 9 p.m. dinner reservation.

You don't throw a young pup to the wolves against Cole Hamels on national TV when he has barely played. I wish he had played more up to now, but since he hasn't played my opinion is tonight is not when you begin.

Over his career, Hamels has been about the same for lefties as he is for righties -

.234   .298   .409 against lefties
.234   .285   .391 against righties

http://www.fangraphs.com/statsplits.aspx?playerid=4972&position=P&season=0

This year, lefties have hit better against him but it's only been a handful of games so the numbers may not be all that meaningful.

.281   .303   .484 against lefties
.233   .274   .344 against righties

We'd better not see Nady in the lineup tonight.

Tyler - with hamels change up, you might have a point.  Again, it is small numbers, but Ankiel is 4 for 7 with a walk and a homer v. Hamels.
