St. Louis Cardinals vs Washington Nationals: Stephen Strasburg GameThread.

76 pitches, 43 strikes, two starts and 5.0 innings into his first Spring Training with the Washington Nationals after having been selected with the no.1 overall pick in the '09 Draft out of San Diego State University, Stephen Strasburg is being given one more chance tonight to convince the Nats' Brass that they can't afford to wait until the beginning of June to insert the right-handed flame-throwing future ace into the Nationals' rotation. Strasburg's allowed 4 hits and 1 walk while recording 4 K's thus far, and tonight the 21-year-old's scheduled for a four-inning outing against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, who bring a decidedly B-lineup to Viera, Florida's Space Coast Stadium, where the Nats and Cards game will get underway at 7:05 pm EST...(What's up, Pujols?) The Nationals' Lineup?

DC Starting Lineup: (AFTER THE JUMP):

DC Starting Lineup:

  1. Thrillie Harris - RF (hmmm)
  2. Adam Kennedy - 2B (New "Two-Spot"?)
  3. Ryan Zimmerman - 3B (Word.)
  4. Adam Dunn - 1B (Back...alright?)
  5. Pudge Rodriguez - C (Was once "Pudgy")
  6. Ian Desmond - SS (Sorry, Guz!)
  7. Justin (J-Max) Maxwell - CF (For now, RF later?)
  8. Willy Taveras - LF (Please, no!)
  9. Stephen Strasburg - SP (Who's this kid?)
Game Time 7:05 pm EST. Charlie and Dave got this one on WFED. You'll need MLB.com Gameday Audio to hear this one outside of the DC area...And that's the only place to hear it. ...As I mentioned, Strasburg's scheduled for 4.0 IP, I'll put up a quick post on how Stras throws after his day's done if anyone can't listen and wants to know asap, otherwise join in on the GameThread, and see if anyone else is listening along...Who's Listening To Strasburg...uh and the rest of the Nationals as they take on the Cards???
