A-Rod is out of the lineup and will be getting an MRI to determine the severity of his hamstring injury.  A trip to the DL hasn't been ruled out.  Of course, don't expect much of a drop in offensive production with Miguel Cairo filling in at 3B.

Johnny Damon gets a rare start in CF today while Melky Cabrera shifts over to LF and Hideki Matsui is the DH.

The featured graphic for today's game is the official team logo of the original Washington Nationals in 1928.  The Nationals later changed their name back to the Senators in 1955.
