Giants at Nationals, Game Time: 7:15 PM Abe Lincoln Time

These are not your father’s Nationals. Can I tell you how much I hate the Walgreens? That banal name! Those even more banal uniforms! The horrible move from Montreal… I could go on and on…

The Giants take on Washington for a three game series starting tonight. Mr. Andrew Suarez is on the hill against Stephen Strasburg.

The Nationals’ leading hitter is Trea Turner batting a very lukewarm .258. Bryce Harper is having another strong year despite hitting without much protection in the line up for most of the season.

Five Questions

  1. Are the Nationals still upset about 2014?
  2. How will the young Giants starters perform on the road against the Washington sluggers?
  3. Why do the Giants have such a poor road record (12-20)?
  4. Should the Giants pitch around Harper?
  5. Should the Giants promote Austin Slater and send another under-performing veteran outfielder packing?
