Oh yeah, there’s a ballgame tonight. Easy how everyone has forgotten about that, considering all the draft hoopla.

The bad news: A violent thunderstorm has delayed the start of this game. The good news: The rain is subsiding and the tarp is currently being pulled off the infield. Figure it takes a good 30-40 minutes to get the field ready, but we should have baseball around 8:50 p.m., according to the grounds crew and umpires.


Once we get going, here are the lineups (remember: Ross Detwiler is starting in place of Jordan Zimmermann, who has a sore and tired elbow)…


SS Cristian Guzman

1B Nick Johnson

3B Ryan Zimmerman

LF Adam Dunn

RF Elijah Dukes

CF Willie Harris

2B Anderson Hernandez

C Wil Nieves

P Ross Detwiler


CF Wily Taveras

3B Jerry Hairston

2B Brandon Phillips

1B Ramon Hernandez

LF Jonny Gomes

RF Jay Bruce

SS Alex Gonzalez

C Ryan Hanigan

P Johnny Cueto
