Gameday Thread: Nationals @ Braves, Game 3
« Topic Start: July 28, 2005, 11:56:33 AM »

Ryan Drese, RHP (7-9, 5.56)
Nationals (55-46)


Jorge Sosa, RHP (5-1, 2.55)
Braves (57-44)

Game Time 1:05 PM

MLB Scouting Report:
Considering his situation -- dueling with future Hall of Famer Roger Clemens -- manager Frank Robinson didn't think Drese pitched too poorly Friday night. Drese did, however, surrender six runs in 6 1/3 innings in the Astros' 14-1 victory. Drese has lost two straight starts to fall to 3-3 since joining the Nats on June 10.

Sosa goes for his third consecutive win at Turner Field on Thursday. Since the All-Star Break, Sosa has struck out nine and allowed one run in 11 innings. Throughout his career, Washington first baseman Nick Johnson has faced Sosa more than any other National, but is 0-for-7 with two strikeouts against the Braves starter. Thursday's start will be the right-hander's first in his career against Washington.

Starting Lineups:

Code: [Select]
  Washington              Atlanta
1. Brad Wilkerson, CF      Rafael Furcal, SS
2. Jose Vidro, 2B          Marcus Giles, 2B
3. Jose Guillen, RF        Chipper Jones, 3B
4. Nick Johnson, 1B        Andruw Jones, CF

I thought that would probably be the case.   :roll:  I wonder now that Comcast's lawsuit was thrown out...whether they will fight it kicking a screaming and go through the appeals process.

     Hello?  MASN has the broadcast rights to all games.  No other network can carry the games whether its TBS or ESPN.  That has been explained over and over.

Franks wearing an AWAY UNIFORM in the duggout.  I've never seen him do that before.  No matter how hot it is he's always been wearing the windbreaker.  Trying to break the losing streak with superstitions.   :roll:

You wanna say it's because of Houston and Atlanta.  Both of those teams are very good!  But then you think back at the Rockies series and wanna eat a bullet.  <sigh>

You think the Braves fans have no class... Whoever the sidekick announcer on the TV broadcast has got to be the world's number one ass kisser... I've never heard (or seen as with the TBS broadcast) anyone who actually acts like a fan with a mic attached to his head... I bet he gives good head to whoever hired him too...

WHAT IN THE HELL WAS VIDRO THINKING?!??  Nick Johnson is just sitting under that pop-up and Vidro almost ran into him...gees.  Thankfully the Jones' brothers have been sat down.
