Fire the manager now. How can anyone possibly justify again starting Werth and batting him 2nd? How incompetent does one have to be to outright refuse to make a change when the 2 games you won involved using Lind and benching Werth?

Let's play now.    I think we're all ready for this thing to begin.

Swap Werth and Taylor and I'm good with it.
Is Dusty afraid that would add too much pressure to young MAT?

I'm afraid that if the Nats advance Baker will still be trotting out Werth.
You just can't break up a winning lineup.

I'm ready.

He's incapable of thinking. The line that has been fed to the press is that this is the lineup that they used all year. That's complete bunk because Werth played 70 games with 289 PA and an OPS of .715. It's inexcusable that he's been provided with at least 2 better veteran players in Kendrick and Lind and two better young players in Robles and Goodwin. Add in Difo and Werth is the 6th best option in LF.

It's very disappointing.

With Hendricks starting I believe it's really up to Murphy and Harper to produce tonight.  I think they both have two hits in the series. That lack of production has to change. Not likely that we are going to shut them out.

Leaving the Fashionable West End of Henrico for the Park now.  Get a good parking stall and hit the bullpen for a pop before the gates open...

Talk amongst yourselves...


If ya didn't pick up the SiL, you should be parked.    :)

I feel like this is going to be a repeat of the 2012 Game 5 game but we shut it down this time and don’t allow the comeback.

If we don't get started soon, I may have to open another 750 of rum.

You convinced me that I'm going out to get Magnum Double Caramel Ice Cream bars. Fck my blood sugar count. And if you haven't tried them what are you waiting for?

and if you are going to start Werth put him at 8 or 9  moving Rendon and Murphy down in the lineup  is not good
Maybe Rusty will pull him after 1 PA and let him have a standing ovation from the fans like he did the final game of the season. Not sure it is a good idea but thought I would put it out there.
