Game Time: 7:05 PM


Ismael Valdez, RHP (1-1, 4.36)
Effective in his last start, Valdez was not involved in the decision in a game the Marlins pulled out against the Cardinals. The veteran has tossed 33 innings this season, returning from a fractured bone in his right leg before the season started. He has struck out 19 and walked 11.


Darrell Rasner, RHP (0-0, -.--)
Tony Armas Jr. was scheduled to pitch, but he is still experiencing shoulder problems. The Nationals will call up right-hander Rasner to make the start on Tuesday. He is playing for Double-A Harrisburg, where he is 6-7 with a 3.59 ERA.

Starting Lineups:
Code: [Select]

No. Florida               Washington
1  Luis Castillo, 2B     Brad Wilkerson, 1B
2  Jeremy Hermida, LF    Marlon Byrd, LF
3  Miguel Cabrera, 3B    Jose Guillen, RF
4  Carlos Delgado, 1B    Preston Wilson, CF
5  Juan Encarnacion, RF  Vinny Castilla, 3B
6  Paul Lo Duca, C       Brian Schneider, C
7  Juan Pierre, CF       Deivi Cruz, 2B
8  Damion Easley, SS     Cristian Guzman, SS
9  Ismael Valdez, P      Darrell Rasner, P

Leadoff walk on 8 pitches to begin the game, not an encouraging sign :?

I don't like this lineup.

You have a rookie pitcher playing.  You need a run-scoring lineup, even if you have to sacrifice defense.

This is not a run-scoring lineup.

And Castilla made an error and left two guys on bases.

Which is fine but we're trying to win games here.  Your lineup has to, at least in part, reflect who's pitching.  A rookie is likely to require a lot of run support.

Maximizing your chances of winning, in this case, means giving up a little defense if it means scoring more runs.

2-0 Fish.

My thought before this game began is that we didn't have a chance, what with the spot-starter.  So far my thesis is being borne out.   We may get lucky, but I consider this one to be a write-off.

I will be happy with no more runs this inning atleast keeping it close

Not necessarily.  I wouldn't have played Guzman, period.  Guzman does not equal run scoring and I probably wouldn't have played Cruz either because he doesn't take enough pitches, especially against this Marlins pitcher.

I would have tried to get Rick Short in the lineup.  The Short-detracters say that he's a "singles and doubles hitter" who "doesn't have a defensive position that he's great at".  We need "doubles and singles hitters", especially tonight.

I would have played Carroll despite the fact that he's not good against right handers.  This Marlins pitcher isn't that good so he'd likely walk Jamie once or twice because Jamie will take pitches.

Also, Zimmerman might be a good choice because hitters have an advantage when they haven't been seen very much.

The totality of the situation should determine the lineup.  I don't know what determines Frank's lineups.

Frank Robinson should replace Guz with Short.

Well holy guacamole.  They walk Bergmann and Wilky goes yard!  3-2 Fish!

If Bergmann and the 'pen can hold the line, we may have a chance.  Hey Marlon!  Bring that chip on your shoulder to the plate again!

C'MON NATS!

Who walks a pitcher?

I'll state again.  This Marlins pitcher isn't very good.

He's also pretty wild, if this most recent inning is any indicator.  2 passed balls.
