Despite the fact that the Orioles do not start until 7:30, the Nats game has been relegated to MASN2. So if you are on MASN from 5:30 on and wondering why you are watching poker or MMA, that's the reason.

Identical record as the BLOS.

I just noticed, by which I mean I just heard Bob and FP talking about it and confirmed that they were right, that J.T. Realmuto is playing 1B.

It's that wind from the WSW I commented on.

Yes. It’s in the lineup you posted. Both he and Harper are banged up and so not playing their regular positions.

The most I actually paid attention to the line-up was putting in the full names for some trivial time-waster reason. I honestly did not even notice that Trea was not in the line-up until game time.

Hustlin' Andrew working on solidifying his lead-off hitter case.

I think Trea was in the original lineup and then pulled.

Maybe now.

I assumed, based on reputation, that Joe West would be hunting strikes, so the game plan for both teams would favor swinging early. I haven't really seen any pattern, though. A fair number of deep counts.

Somebody needs to light a fire under Davey and the Nats batters and remind them that my GDT winning streak is at risk. I was almost back to .500.

Absolutely no shot for this team to win a game without Trea in the lineup
