Looking to close out the Nationals today in the finale. And for those who missed it this morning, J.A. Adande is closing out his career at the L.A. Times. He has always been extremely professional in covering us and I’m sure that whatever he winds up doing, he’ll be successful. We certainly wish him luck.
In regards to the question about going to the First-Year Player Draft in Florida, it’s not exactly open to the public but I’ve been told that they’ll try to accomodate people if they show up. So, while there aren’t tickets, you can try and go by the hotel and see if there’s a way to watch from inside.
Here’s today’s lineup:
Furcal, SS (going for a career-high 16-game hitting streak)
Vote Russell, C (you guys are doing awesome with this)
And finally, in case you didn’t see it in the comments section, here’s a very good article from Ken Rosenthal about Russell Martin.
Enjoy the game and the usual debates…I’m on the East Coast this weekend starting tomorrow so posting might be a little slower. But, it seems Tony Jackson has been posting the lineups quickly, too, so check out his blog over the weekend if you don’t see a lineup here. It’s called, ironically, Inside the Dodgers.
