|2008 - Ryan Tucker||2-2||4||4||0||0||0||0||20.0||24||15||15||2||12||15||6.75||1.80|
|2008 - Tim Redding||6-3||17||17||0||0||0||0||97.2||92||52||44||12||35||59||4.05||1.30|
The Nationals, winner of three of their last four, are in town.
Tucker will be facing the Nationals for the first time. He last outing didn't go so good, to say the least, giving up 7 runs in just 4 innings. But these things happen when 21 year-old pitchers are hastened to the bigs. There is no doubt that Tucker has talent but much like the prize in Cracker Jack, you never know what you will get. (Do they still put prizes in Cracker Jack?)
Redding always goes 5 innings but very rarely more than 6. His last start was good one going 6 innings and only giving up 2 runs. He hasn't had a decision in his last 7 starts but the Nationals are 14-3 when he takes the mound.
I'm so completely out of time, but quickly: don't look for to Uggla to start any of the games in this series. If, and that is if, Amezaga plays in the field in the series it will be as an infielder and Andino will be used in the outfield.
A little Josh Johnson news:
Josh Johnson (right elbow) allowed five runs on 11 hits in 52/3 innings Sunday for Class AA Carolina. He walked one and struck out three.
His next start could be Friday for the Marlins in Colorado.
Anyone else think they are rushing him back? And maybe a bit before he is ready?
I've gotta go.
Ichthyomany still hates Monday. Best of Luck to You!
