Today’s Nationals-Braves lineups

When Livan Hernandez faced Jair Jurrjens last year, he provided one of the all-time anecdotes that showed off his carefree bravado. While standing on deck, in Atlanta, he told a fan that he hit Jurrjens well and predicted a home run. Incredibly, Hernandez actually did a hit a homer. After circling the bases, he handed his bat to the fan he’d been chatting with.

Keeep that in mind when Hernandez comes to bat tonight.
