    Good to see Kearns moving ahead of Hatte. If EE continues with his discipline, he would make a pretty sick 2nd hitter.

    Given the players that are starting, that's just about how I'd order the lineup.

    Kudos to Narron for not shooting himself in the foot and batting Phillips and his .330 on-base percentage 2nd in the order. With Brandon's inability to take a walk and get on base at a solid clip, he belongs batting 7th, though his solid slugging percentage will continue to be an asset that low in the order.

    Hatteberg's OPS is heavy on the OBP side and thin on the SLG side, while Phillips' OPS is heavy on the SLG side and thin on the OBP side. Solid OBP batting in front of solid SLG is a nice formula for run scoring, and it makes perfect sense to bat Hatteberg in front of Phillips. Let Hatteberg get on base, and allow Phillips to move Hatteberg around the bases and/or in to the plate.

    That all said, we need to come away with a win here and take the series. Despite how ugly the team looked on Tuesday night, if we take two of three from Washington there shouldn't be many complaints overall for the series.

    The only surprise I see is that Soriano isnt playing for the Nationals today.

    They're going with Ward to improve the defense

    I predicted this lineup 100% correctly in the Griffey thread!
