I try not to cuss in headlines.
Not only is Estrada on the active roster, he is catching tonight.
Did Flores not make it back? Is HE hurt, too? I see no other explanation for him not being out there. There's been a bit of a break, no? You have a kid who leads the team in RBI despite not playing in more than 60 percent of the games. You have a team that is offensively challenged at best (and not very good on defense tonight). So you sit a guy who has at least shown he can hit some in the clutch?
I am baffled. One of the commenters on the Nationals Journal said he'd fake illness if he was a pitcher out there with that defense. I don't have to fake it.
The $6.25 million Dynamic Dud Duo is on the field tonight. I'm ill again.
