Nationals vs Marlins, Game 1
« Topic Start: April 01, 2007, 10:48:42 AM »
Welcome back Nats!



April 2nd, 2007 - RFK Stadium, 1:05 PM


Dontrelle Willis
0-0, 0.00

John Patterson
0-0, 0.00
For the 2nd straight season,
Willis gets the  Opening Day
nod. A year ago, the D-Train
threw five scoreless innings
in a no-decision at Houston.
Willis  is the Marlins' all-
time  wins  leader,  with  a
58-39 career mark, and he is
the  only  pitcher  in  club
history  to  post  a  20-win
season (22 in 2005). Against
Washington  lifetime,  he is
9-4 with a 3.46 ERA.



Hanley Ramirez (SS)
Dan Uggla (2B)
Miguel Cabrera (3B)
Mike Jacobs (1B)
Josh Willingham (LF)
Joe Borchard (RF)
Miguel Olivo (C)
Alenjandro De Aza (CF)
Dontrelle Willis (P)
Patterson  will play his 1st
Major League game since July
9.  He  missed  most  of the
season because of a  pinched
nerve in his  right forearm.
Patterson is now 100 percent
healthy  and  will  face the
Marlins for the 10th time in
his career. He is 2-4 with a
3.72 ERA against them.  Last
season, the  Marlins  scored
3 runs in 13 innings against
Patterson.



Felipe Lopez (2B)
Cristian Guzman (SS)
Ryan Zimmerman (3B)
Austin Kearns (RF)
Dmitri Young (1B)
Brian Schneider (C)
Ryan Church (LF)
Nook Logan (CF)
John Patterson (P)

Additionally, here's hope my uber-ironic avatar can, this season, actually not be ironic.

For the love of Stanton!  Good to read you Eso'!  If our Good Cristian continues what he did in Spring Training, leading the team in BA, this team might actually have a shot at the playoffs (if the pitching can hold their own.)

You know what? I don't care if it's gonna be a long season or not.  I'm just relieved to have baseball BACK.
