Being as immature as I am, I can’t help but chuckle at today’s pitching matchup, which features the Nationals’ Chien-Ming Wang against the Mets’ R.A. Dickey.
Wang vs. Dickey. For all the marbles.
It was an incredibly low-key morning, as players slowly trickled into the Nats’ clubhouse with their suits ready for the road trip which they’ll leave for after the game.
I talked to a yawning Moore in the Nats’ clubhouse, who said he got in to Washington between 1-2 a.m. this morning. Despite the nighttime travel, he insisted he got enough sleep and is excited to be back with the Nats after just a few days down in Triple-A.
Davey Johnson’s lineup still hadn’t been posted by the time we talked to him about a half-hour ago, but according to the Nats’ skipper, here’s how it will look:
LF Steve Lombardozzi
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Michael Morse
SS Ian Desmond
2B Danny Espinosa
C Jhonatan Solano
P Chien-Ming Wang
