So I might as well get this going...why is Matt resting Rendon (the team's hottest hitter) and starting Espinosa?

It's early in the season, maybe just trying to get different guys at bats.

If Espinosa were to by some miracle take a step forward this season that would be huge for the Nats.

Rizzo's got his family in a dungeon and Williams only gets the key if he gets Espinosa a certain amount of at-bats. Because potential.

Welp, their situational lefty can get through an entire inning by simply walking Werth.

Love being able to manipulate my schedule to watch the Nats.

Hate seeing Rendon sat this early especially after a very productive start to the season.  This better work.

I guess it is about time for a "Fire Matt" thread.

It's stupid and there is no excuse, none except Rizzo is in love with Danny, pisses me off.

Oh geeez that never crossed my mind.     I can't watch Espinosa starting.   I'm going golfing.

I actually went to VCU, that had nothing to do with promoting Duke the school, it was a play on words because Zack Duke was starting. AND I AM OFF OF SELF APPOINTED RESTRICTION DUE TO THAT

Don't fret over it. Duke has a top recruiting class coming in (coach K was given more salary flexibility to compete with Calipari) so you can go back on the bandwagon next season.  :poke:

best wishes to Tanner Roark on his unplanned start and especially to
Danny Espinosa as he makes his 2014 big league starting
debut.
