And a nice play by Rivera. His sinker is working.

OK now I remember you in that debate. I take my comment back. But I don't give a **** about injuries. If a player is hurt he should be out of the lineup until he's 100%. I don't buy excuses.

It's not that simple though.  Don Sutton - a HOF pitcher - mentioned in Friday night's broadcast that it takes time for players to get their grooves back.  When Milledge first came back it took a while and now he's rocking it.  Same for Zimmerman.  Remember when Ronnie Baseball was hurt earlier in the year?  He went what 0-for-15 in rehab with like 6 strikeouts.  First game back he rocked two home runs in Pittsburgh.  Dukes is of the same mold as well - he can hit a HR the day he gets off the DL.  Some players can contribute right away, some can't.

Zimmerman has never been injury prone and I'm sure after missing two months of baseball for the first time in your life, takes a huge amount of adjusting to do.  Sure, it took a long while, but he's really killing it now.

Nice job Saul. Who pitches the 8th?

I still don't give a crap about that hammondsnats. If you're in the lineup you better produce or take your ass on an extended rehab assignment until you're ready to step in and produce. I only care about results. I don't care about excuses for favored players.

Dmitri Young's rehab this week with the Vermont Lake MONSTERS is the first time in the 15-year history of that franchise that a major league player will play there.  Somebody should alert 2k6nats.

Young needs to bring back stuff from their store...

I hate Clay Condrey. That dude always pitches in long relief against us and shuts us down.   >:(

I hope it's not Shell. But it will probably be. Him or Rivera for another inning.

I say Shell should pitch, see what he can do with a little more pressure.

Maybe we'll see either Shell or Mock but they're probably hoping Rivera can go another inning.

I want to test your "Shell can't pitch in clutch situations" theory.

Triple would be nice here.

Btw, Bonifacio would be the triples leader if he was here all season.

Worse case scenario is that he blows it, gets more experience, and can learn from his mistakes in the offseason.  Plus we get a better read of what he is capable of.

The last time the Nats had fewer than 10 hits was Wednesday, coinciding with the day Eckstein arrived. He was too late to make a difference for that game.  :rofl:
