We've got a very new lineup compared to last year. We don't have lot of power, but I don't think runs will be our problem. I think the bats will take a few games to liven up, though.
It's our rotation that scares me. But on the other hand, I'm encouraged by the defense. Livan really had a sub par outing, but we still only gave up 2 runs.
I'm still predicting a .500 season +/- 5 games.

And strange as it may sound, I think we will miss Nyjer Morgan, attitude and all. I don't see many stolen bases in our immediate future. Ugh, and Desmond, I love the kid as a SS, but a leadoff hitter, he is not.

Weird seeing Werth hitting in the 2 slot. That does not seem like the proper spot in the lineup for him. Kind of takes away from his potential for power and driving in runs.
especially hitting after fuging Ian Desmond lol
idk, with Morgan gone I don't really see a legitimate leadoff hitter.

What's your take on Lannan?

Nats got screwed on the strike zone at the end of that game. Not that I am complaining of course.
I understand giving some close pitches to a guy like Halladay, but they literally doubled the strike zone on that final at bat to Pudge. I'm not even hating on the ump for the Stairs at bat; he sat there and and struck out looking to 3 very close pitches.
The Pudge at bat though was fuging disgusting. First he gave him the pitch on the inside corner. Whatever, if you're going to call it at least be consistent. and then on the final pitch, WAYYYY outside, and it's strike 3. Just a bullshit way to end the game.
