From Washington Nationals web site

The Nationals have clinched a first-place finish to the first half of the season.

How many games they'll be up on the Braves in the National League East is yet to be determined.

The Nationals will face the Phillies on Sunday at 1:35 p.m. ET in their final game before the All-Star break.

Washington, which had its five-game road winning streak snapped with a 1-0 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday, will send starting pitcher Esteban Loaiza (5-5, 3.61 ERA) to the mound. Loaiza will oppose Phillies starter Jon Lieber (8-8, 5.13 ERA).

Loaiza was terrific in his last start against the New York Mets, giving up six hits and one earned run in eight innings.

Cepicky's been around for a long time in AAA apparently.  Frank's used to using him back in Montreal.  I don't know enough about the guy to say whether it's a good move or not.

Marlon Byrd doesn't hit right handers very well. With Cepicky being a left handed hitter, he have a better view of the pitch.

Cepicky, in my opinion, is the guy that is too good for the AAA but not enough good for the majors.

Baerga has been phenomenal all series long but Kevin Orie is tearing it up badly in the AAA...why not give him a chance one day? He could replace Spivey even though he isn't a 2b.Harris can play 2B.The braves gave a chance to Francoeur and look how he did.

We've to give a chance to our younger guys...I'd also give a chance to Bill Bray.

But that's just me.

Ryan Howard single RBI:  WASH 3, PHI 1

He's had a good series against us.  I think we are just jinxed to play anybody with the last name HOWARD.  :wink:

I don't think he is a problem in the clubhouse if that's what you're asking. He is vocal, yes, but not usually in a bad way.

Jerspos...I've heard that that rumour is GREATLY exagerrated...if you watch the games you can see Jose cutting up and goofing around in the dugout.  That's not a sign of any bad chemistry to me.
