    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and the Braves get another shot at Stephen Strasburg. Baseball is a game of matchups. Pitcher vs. hitter.

    Jul 26, 2010, 2:40 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Craig Stammen, like several Nats starters, needs to make a better case for himself. There's the ace, who has assumed that role only nine starts into his career, though deservedly so. And there's the wily old vet, who continues to prove he's got more left in his right…

    Photo courtesy Milwaukee Brewers It's game two of three this evening at Miller Park. Updated below with starting lineups I'm not sure what it says that for a team that boasts Stephen Strasburg, Adam Dunn, Ryan Zimmerman and Ivan Rodriguez, the player drawing the most attention from fans right now is Michael Morse.

    Jul 22, 2010, 8:58 PM EST

    Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Livan Hernandez was thoroughly efficient in his complete-game win. CINCINNATI — How many times has Livan Hernandez's career been declared dead? Two? Three?
