Kendrick is 5-10 against Quintana. Will the manager wake up and bench Werth or will he again ignore all reason and common sense and leave one of the black holes in the lineup?

We can only hope Kendrick starts.  I’d have to think Dusty does that.

I follow most of the Nats beat writers and one or more of them generally retweets stuff like this.

This would be the perfect spot to give it a try.    We'll win either way though.

You pretend to work every other day and there ain't even a game.    They won't even notice.      :poke:

You game begins during your lunch hour and should be over by the end of your work day so you can get some work done before heading home to catch some of the Nats game.  :twisted:

from yesterday's practice
Per Chelsea Janes:

Kendrick's out in left field trying to get a feel for this view. He's got the most history against Quintana of anyone...5 for 10.
So, let's see what Dusty does.

I hope Howie doesn't end up like Andre.

BTW  ...   Took a peek and Werth is in LF.

Oh, and after that RDG capture of a retweet, time for yet another 70's music youtube:

nah, I couldn't. There's only so many Captain and Tenille references one can take in a week (see the weather thread for names of upcoming winter storms).

I really thought that this would be a great game to start Kendrick over Werth. I'm disappointed but we'll see what happens.

From Jorge Castillo: "Lind is 2 for 9 (against Quintana). Kendrick is 5 for 10, which could’ve prompted Baker to start Kendrick in left field over Jayson Werth, who, like seven other members of Washington’s lineup, has never faced Quintana. But

Werth is a right-handed hitter with a long history of success against left-handed pitching — and cutter-heavy types, which Quintana qualifies as."

Have someone call you out of the meeting for an emergency.

Stubborn old man. Also won't bat Taylor seventh.
