With four straight losses, weekend visit from Yankees couldn't have come at a worse time for reeling Nationals. Seems as appropriate a time as any to break out the official Nationals Enquirer Panic Button.
BUT...we're not afraid of the big bad Yankees. Our prediction? Nats take 2 out of 3 (win tonight and Sunday and lose big - like, real big - Saturday)
Tonight: Jaret Wright (3-4 4.44 ERA) vs. Shawn Hill (1-1 1.80 ERA)
Saturday: Shawn Chacon (4-1 5.23 ERA) vs. Ramon Ortiz (5-5 4.88 ERA)
Sunday: Chien-Ming Wang (7-2 4.15 ERA) vs. Mike O'Connor (3-4 3.70 ERA)
