So the boys are at it again tonight with a team that refuses to not give pity to our baby boys. I for one care not to see another 6 home run ball game. But like all of you good soldiers I will sit around and watch us get destroyed by a team with a solid game plan and a farm system in place.
I know that Theo/Jed are taking notes on what the Nationals have been doing and how they have become dominant in the NL.
Yet our kids in blue will continue to try to not not break records by having a 100 loss season.
Coming off its second straight six-homer game, NL East-leading Washington looks to continue to pound Chicago’s pitching and sweep its first four-game series from the Cubs in 15 years tonight.
“This is by far the best team we’ve played all year,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “It’s like an American League lineup, too. Guys that hit the ball a long way.”Next up against Washington’s potent lineup is Justin Germano (2-5, 6.30 ERA), who has done a decent job of keeping the ball in the park but has still been getting knocked around plenty in losing his last three starts.
So with that being said and our miserable season slowly coming to a close I leave you with tonight’s lineup:
D. DeJesus, RF
L. Valbuena, 3B
A. Rizzo, 1B
A. Soriano, LF
S. Castro, SS
S. Clevenger, C
B. Jackson, CF
D. Barney, 2B
J. Germano, P
