    So why exactly is Church in the 2 hole and Pagan in the 6?

    By the way, if Castillo isn't going to bat 2nd he might as well be batting 9th.

    I would rather Church hit in the 5 hole and move Delgado to 6. I am tired of seeing Wright and Beltran get on only to have a situational lefty get out Delgado. Church seems hang in there vs lefties much better.

    Yeah 8th makes no sense. 7th maybe, but I don't understand 8th.

    Yup, Easley would be the better man. The team is missing a lot of pop from the 06 and 07 teams. The drop off of about 15-20 HRs at 2b to an expected goose egg from Castillo is a big reason why.

    This lineup puzzles me. Castillo is an ideal 2 hitter and he's hitting 8th, in favor of Ryan Church who still doesn't hit Lefties very well. But maybe Willie sees something that I don't (Most likely not).

    Two interesting theories with the lineup brought up in the game.

    - Batting Church second stands to reason that he'll get more Fastballs with Reyes on Base and Wright on deck.

    - Batting Church second breaks up the Lefties at the bottom of the lineup.

    Both of them make sense to me, but why today? With the Lefty on the mound? Still doesn't matter cause Church is 1 for 1 so far.

    Pelf control isn't the best today with his FB but surprisingly his slider has been ok. Lots of ground balls, hope he continues to attack the batters, he is so successful when he does that.

    Also love the camera angles from SNY.

    Bases loaded after a broken bat blooper to LF and a walk to Thrilledge.

    Gotta get a DP from Zimm here.

    I think he did it on his own.....Church isn't exactly the best hitter against LHP. He probably figured it was better to sacrifice himself there. Perhaps he needs to be reminded to swing the bat. lol

    That was the worst slide into second however though. Thank you Nats for not taking advantage.
