Still trying to figure out how the Nationals weren't able to trade Dunn for either the Red Sox or Yankees' entire starting lineups . . .

Cedeno can field ... I suspect that Pirates fans may have overestimated Jack Wilson's contributions, thinking that other SS's were not as good defensively, and forgetting that Wilson was dreadful at the plate in all but two seasons (2004 and 2007).

The Sox and Yankees offered their entire line-ups, but the Nats held out for a dozen Milli Vanilli CD's in addition. That was the deal breaker.

Poor Nats. I kind of feel bad for them. I would like to see them have some success....but not at our expense. :)

Just sped through the first 1 1/2 to catch up. Wow! Cutch is on fire and this is great. The Nats really suck. They make us look like contenders.

I just wish the Mets were at the bottom. I'm not a big fan of them.

I just don't understand why the game plan calls for pitching Nyjer Morgan on the outside of the plate. Maybe they are seeing something (i.e., Nyjer is pulling off the ball) that I'm not. With his speed, the last thing that you want to do is let him go to the opposite field either with a gap shot or to pound it on the ground. If anything, I'm busting him inside, trying to force him to pull the ball and making him catch up to Morton's fastball.

Just don't get it at all.

Cedeno gets a star X2! You're right he can field. We as fans may have overestimated Jack but I don't think NH did. This kid is pretty sound though I like that. I think he'll be even better defensively if he still plays next year.

Well, I don't know about the rest of yinz :) ......but I'm not missing Jack or Freddy......or NDog......or NyMo........or JayBay.......or XMan.......or Adam LaRoche........or Snell........or Burnett (actually I'm missing Burnett coming out of the Bullpen probably more than anyone)......hopefully that will change soon when the Bullpen gains it's identity again. There are pieces there and down at Indy.

I don't know if not missing is the correct word. I'm really enjoying the games and the play so far but I really liked Nyjer, Freddy, and Jack even though I don't have a problem w/ the trades.

This just in...Dunn really sucks in the field.

Doumit is lucky Dunn is playing at 1B because that was another DP ball he just hit.

We gotta get something out of this. We have been chipping away all night at this guy with nothing after that big first inning. Time for a big hit Delwyn!

It's starting to look that way. He just plunked Zimmerman.
