Thursday’s Nationals-Phillies discussion space

PHILADELPHIA - I’m a little late in posting this, but we’re going to set up a discussion space for tonight’s Nationals-Phillies game like we did last night. Post your thoughts and questions about the game in the comments section, and I’ll respond to you there.

I’ll have a couple longer posts with game analysis throughout the night, but this thread is for you to talk about the game. I’ll try to add a couple polls, too, and as this evolves, I might add a window with all of my tweets from games. It’s pretty open-ended, so let me know any ideas you have or things you’d like to see. This is your space. Have at it.

UPDATE AT 8:18 P.M.: I’ve got a new post looking at John Lannan’s night, and one of the reasons he’s been so bad against the Phillies. Check it out here.

The Nationals have runners on first and second in the fourth inning, after Jayson Werth was sent from third on a shallow Wilson Ramos single and was called safe at home on a close play. They’ve got time to chip away, but Halladay isn’t going to give them many more opportunities after this one.
