Losers of 5 straight close ones, the Nationals need a break. Luckily that break is coming in the form of a two game home series against the pitching depleted Mets and a three game weekend set against the hapless Orioles. Tonight the Nats will start Livan Hernandez on 3 days rest, with the Mets throwing out whoever the heck R.A. Dickey is. I vaguely remember Dickey as a knuckleballer on MLB The Show 08. So lets go with that.
