Looking at our lineup without McLouth and Doumit makes me wonder who has the worst lineup in baseball? This one can't be all that far from that "title", considering we weren't all that far removed WITH Nate and Ryan. So, who's lineup is worse?

I would have to say San Francisco or Oakland (might be a tie). San Francisco has very little power in their lineup, and Oakland is not in real great shape either. Houston doesn't look so hot this year, but with Berkman and Lee, they can't be that terrible. Our team right now is very very near the bottom probably (without Doumit or Nasty Nate.)

I would submit that the Padres lineup tonight is not only the worst current lineup in MLB, but one of the worst I've ever seen.

:D I think a lot of us were thinking that last night. I actually think w/ M&D we are not all that bad, maybe bottom 25% but definitely not the worst. I think Wash is toward the bottom if not the worst. It's hard to know this early.

Why do people hate on adam dunn he is a very good hitter. He bring 40 homeruns a lineup presence as well. Padres dont have a terrible lineup its not good but it can at times get the job done. They have a top 10 best hitter in baseball

Adam Dunn is a fantastic hitter. However, he is not enough to turn a terrible Washington team into a good Washington team, just like how Jason Bay (who I would submit is a better hitter than Dunn) was not enough to turn a bad Pirates team into a good one. There was talk that the signing of Dunn was a sign that Washington was a team on the verge. Such proclamations were and are nonsense.

Who are you referring to? Adrian Gonzalez? By what metric? Admittedly, he's very good and absolutely the best hitter on that team, but I'm not sure he even cracks the top 20, let alone the top 10.
