We will see.

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.

Yeah I think our offense will be much better, especially if Morse lives up to the hype. The rotation is just pathetic at best. I expected this going in without Strasburg though.

Still not sold on Morse as an every day player. Would be happy to be proven wrong, though.

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.

Nice win over the Braves today.

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.

On a side note....I still miss Dibble calling the Nats games. He got a raw deal.

Zimmermann's perfect game broken up :( This guy is seriously legit. If Strasburg can return, and stay healthy, this pitching staff is going to be pretty damn good.

Sweep! Didn't see this coming with Zim out, but if they can just go .500 or fingers crossed, .600 until he gets back it'll set us up real good. Clippard is unreal right now and the starters seem to be pretty good.
