Rolen still out, Bruce back in as expected, Cairo still at 3rd.

Not sure if I'll do PBP or not, probably not to start the game at least. Later,

I miss Dunn.

I don't get to watch tonight because of the pissing match between MASN and Time Warner Cable. The Nats and Orioles are my "home teams" in North Carolina and all of their games are blacked out, even on my Extra Innings package. If you can, get a satellite.

Martin pumps in strikes, and doesn't walk many people, making him quite hittable with his pedestrian stuff.

Over/under 2 batter before people complain about "hacking"?

Thanks. I like Dunn, but I would have to disagree with him somewhat. GABP didn't ruin his average--his low batting average while playing here was his own fault, not the fault of the stadium. However, it soulds like he has grown and matured as a hitter, and I commend him for that.
