The pitching machine has it humming tonight.

I got plunked by a pitching machine in little league.

Why take him out at 89 pitches? Seriously, Davey? At least give him a shot to start the next inning.

Really shouldn't be pinch hitting for JZ this early.

I hate this decision. Stop babying these starters. It taxes the crap out of the pen and at some point you have to let them go deep. Our bullpen is going to fall apart like the Braves last year.

Me too

rain have something to do with it?

If the game gets delayed mid inning due to rain, Zimm comes out anyway, so why not bat for him here? We'll see.

Zimm's got a pretty good shot at hitting the ball, too.

...I was just about to post DON'T PH. But I guess we need the runs more than the dominant pitching?

Why Jordan pulled so early?

Man the offense sucked tonight.

Let me just state for the record that I think Davey has lost his mind.  Unless Jordan is hurt this is insane.  89 pitches?  Are we ever going to let our young pitchers grow up?

Tyler Moore, you have been on the bench all night watching - have you not noticed that he throws everything up in the eyes with two strikes?  Ughhhh.

And Storen gets thrown into the fire against Wright in a one-run game.

I don't get this at all.

Suck it WRIGHT! Did you see his face when he hit it? Wright thought that was easily out of the park.

Gonzalez has been decent but to think he's this good is a stretch. Let's hope it works out.

But the bullpen is starting to get a bit overworked...I think I saw somewhere that the Nats bullpen has something like the 4th most innings pitched.

Storen to Gonzales with a one run lead?  I'm covering my eyes.  I'm guessing an overused Burnett in the 8th if it works out?
