GB&U: Second Verse, Same as the First!

RESULT: Nats fall to Braves 7-6.

GOOD: Um, Willie Harris? He went 2-for-4. So did Langerhans. Charlie Manning pitched two scoreless.

BAD: Tim Redding. With a line-up like we threw out there yesterday (more on that coming), your starter has to get you deep into the game, and Redding has one of his worst appearances of the season. Six earned in 4 IPs with six hits and three walks. Yuck.

UGLY: The Line-up. It bears repeating here:

CF Harris .228
1B LoDuca .225
SS Guzman .312
RF Kearns .205
C Estrada .163
2B Belliard .234
3B Casto .214
LF Langerhans .222

Are you kidding me? Seriously? Where's the condemnation? I'm all for 'The Plan', but last time I checked, this was supposed to me MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL. This is a g-d damn embarrassment. Four catchers on the roster? Really JimBow? WTF?!? The current roster has four catchers and three outfielders. This is absurd. Please, PLEASE Mr. Kasten step in and do the right thing. Bowden's GOT TO GO.

NEXT GAME: Tonight in Atlanta. Lannan (5-9, 3.40) faces Jair Jurrjens (9-4, 3.00)
